The Entrepreneur Behind the Business

Nathan Perez, a young French entrepreneur, is now at the head of one of the friendliest cafés in the Plateau-Mont-Royal neighbourhood: Au Festin de Babette. After discovering that the academic life wasn't for him, he left France to settle in Montreal in 2003. Following a short stint as a realtor, he decided to try his luck in the restaurant business, which is where he finally found his vocation.

Initially an employee at Au Festin de Babette, Nathan quickly made a name for himself through his involvement in the business. He found he really identified with the environment, as it reminded him of his childhood in France. Today, Nathan is the master of the house!

In the heart of the Plateau, our café, with its artisanal appearance, offers you a selection of quality products, served in a warm atmosphere where people of all age groups are welcome. - Nathan Perez, owner

A Café Like no Other

Au Festin de Babette is a café whose products, atmosphere and clientele differ from other small and large cafés in Montreal. Customers will find not only various varieties of delicious hot chocolate, soft ice cream, and brunches — which are some of the most popular items on the menu — but also many refined products from France and local items from Quebec. For lovers of authentic products, Au Festin de Babette is certainly a gem to discover!

This little café is also distinguished by its friendly, family-like atmosphere, which makes it the first choice for young families as well as people who live and work in the neighbourhood. Upon entering Au Festin de Babette, it quickly becomes apparent that this is not the place to sit down in front of a computer; instead, it's a spot to meet up with friends and chat over a good meal.

Ready to Put in the Necessary Effort

Obviously, like any young entrepreneur, Nathan had to overcome initial challenges before his endeavour was successful. At the beginning, he had to rebuild Au Festin de Babette's clientele. It's safe to say that he's accomplished this mission, which he did through perseverance, patience, ambition, and innovation — qualities he considers essential for any entrepreneur.

Today, customers don't just stop by for the quality of the food, but also to visit Nathan, who always knows how to welcome them with a big smile and friendly conversation!
