Not only do you feel good, but you also eat the craziest sandwich of your life : 2 or 3 layers accompanied by a good salad, the flavours are there so many original Which lovely † I often choose “Killing Tomato” : Sun-dried tomato, basil and garlic cream cheese with sliced fresh tomatoes and ham. You can also make your own sandwich †
The little extras: milkshakes with many flavors (Quebec maple syrup, green apple or passion fruit, etc.), organic tea and vegetarian/healthy choices.

Finally access to the grail of the terrace, you are guided through the great room, and after a small narrow corridor: that’s it, you see it! The famous terrace opens to you. Except that you are hidden (and therefore quiet), you eat there delicious tapas (roasted peppers, grilled sardines, spicy potatoes… ok sometimes it’s a bit greasy, you’ll probably Stick soon) accompanied by a sangria who will do everything for you forget the next morning†
To note : if you want to drink sangria in abundance you should be club member for the liquor license, charges approx. $10 more.
