Maynard's allows us to completely rethink our concept of a good comforting snack. They were the first vegan restaurant to obtain the "Aliments du Québec" certification, which guarantees freshness and quality of ingredients at all times.

Café Dei Campi is the first Italian pastry shop in Montreal. They offer a wide variety of desserts that taste like heaven. Our favorites are the fauxtella donuts and the zeppoles. But, you have to be on the lookout. They don't serve their doughnuts daily and the zeppoles only appear once a year, a bit like Santa Claus, but for the feast of San Giuseppe.
