August 18, 2011 – Resting along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River, Old Montréal is one of the most captivating areas of the city. Home to major attractions like the famous Notre Dame Basilica and the Pointe-à-Callière Museum, which tells the story of the city through archaeological studies and artefacts, it is rich in 17th and 18th century history and charm.
But this vibrant neighbourhood always has something new to offer. The latest attraction is Café-terrasse Chez Catherine, a warm and friendly coffee shop and ice cream parlour in the heart of the district. Hailing from Mascouche, owner Catherine Archambault brings county-style flair to the décor (think polka dot table cloths!) and country-style care to the food.
Offering a variety of meal crêpes, dessert crêpes, panini sandwiches, soups, and hot dogs on a stick, the Café-terrasse Chez Catherine invites you to enjoy breakfast or take advantage of its lunchtime specials. Indulge in their signature “Avalanche Brownies,” Québec ice cream, iced coffee or delicious alcohol-free cocktails. Whether you’re strolling through the cobble-stone streets, rolling along the area’s winding bike paths, or even enjoying a ride in a horse-drawn carriage, the café—with its outdoor terrace—is a great place to stop and take it all in.
