Experience sugar shack season in Montreal!

If you close your eyes and you think "cabane à sucre" (sugar shack), you will probably think of a large wooden shack/cabin in the middle of the forest. But did you know that it is not necessary to cross a bridge to calm your fancy for eggs in maple syrup, taffy, and everything else that is not good for health but works wonders for the morale? Here are some places to visit in our beautiful sweet metropolis.

Old Port of Montreal

100-181, Place d'Youville, Montréal, QC H2Y 2B2

The chef is Laurent Godbout. The restaurant is la Scena in the Old Port. And, for the fourth year in a row, the menu is one that dreams are made of, served on Friday and Saturday evenings at 6:00 pm as well as on Sundays at 11:00 am, from March 11 to April 16. Adults pay $65 and children $25 to taste a “traditional-chic” menu inspired by the unique flavours of maple in a friendly and inspiring setting.

SDC Wellington

3993, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V6

Another year, another edition of the Cabane Panache et Bois Rond, this time from March 18 to 26 on the Promenade Wellington, in Verdun. On the menu: a veritable feast from days gone by, activities, an ephemeral lumberjack camp, dancing, wood splitting, maple taffy and bouchées (small snacks). Not to be missed under any circumstances!

Marché Atwater

138, av Atwater, Montréal, QC H4C 2G3

At the Atwater Market, the Cabane à sucre will be held on Friday, March 24, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The pass costs $5 and gives you access to satisfy your sweet tooth directly at the merchant kiosks.

Kiosque Mont-Royal

482 Ave du Mont Royal E, Montréal, QC H2J 1W4

Immediately upon exiting the Mont-Royal metro station, the cabane à sucre of the Mont-Royal kiosk is open daily from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. It will offer syrup, sugar pies, cookies, donuts ... and delicious maple snow taffy! A satisfyingly sweet indulgence after a day’s work!

Restaurant Le Richmond

377, rue Richmond, Montréal, QC H3J 1T9

And it is once again time for the fourth annual edition of the brunch à l’érable at Le Richmond, a beautiful restaurant located in Griffintown. You can visit on Saturdays and Sundays during the month of March to taste Cornish hen and maple-glazed smoked trout, seared foie gras, boudin (blood pudding) and French toast with maple syrup.

Marché Place Jacques-Cartier

448A, Place Jacques-Cartier, Montréal, QC H2Y 3B3

The small sugar shack at Place Jacques Cartier is open every weekend from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. If you go there, take the opportunity to taste their famous “p’tit boire” (“little drink”), the maple hot cider, or even their maple cotton candy.
