Meet the owner

Since it first opened back in 1943, Sugarbowl has always been Garneau's destination restaurant and and community hub. Throughout the '40s and '50s, the place operated as a burger joint and then as a coffeehouse during the ‘60s and ‘70s. Currently under the ownership of Abel Shiferaw, the place has evolved into what is is now – a home away from home.

After years of serving two doors down at the High-level Diner, Abel took over Sugarbowl with a vision to evolve the space. “Abel has always had a love of Belgian-style beers and at the time when he took the place over, no one was really doing beer,” explains general manager Matteo Zenari. “He started out with mostly Belgian beer and that’s kind of always been his main focus.” Since then, Sugarbowl has evolved to include microbrews and craft beer while still retaining a love for the Belgian style of beers.

Upon entry, Sugarbowl boasts a dimly-lit modern rustic interior with brick walls, antique chandeliers, wooden tables and exposed piping aplenty. It’s a home away from home for many and evokes the low key vibe of a giant family living room. “We like to be that community hub for university students, people living in the residential area and also the other nearby businesses,” Matteo explains. “That’s the general thing we want to go for – just a place where you can be comfortable.”
