Montréal was a feast for the eyes, the soul and the stomach! We enjoyed a variety of ethnic meals in a variety of cafés and restaurants: African, Bretagne, Lebanese, Chinese, and of course French from casual to haute cuisine. A highlight for us was the day Beth and Jonathan took us to a cheese shop with a huge variety of Quebec cheeses, many that we've never seen, then to an amazing, colourful and huge farmer's market with abundant local produce, herbs, colourful flowers, and plants for the garden. The fine bakery next door offered fabulous breads and we paused in our shopping for some coffee and cheesecake with strawberries with enough leftover for the next day! All this was followed later by a wonderful home cooked dinner at Beth and J's home with local wild asparagus, new potatoes and fresh strawberries bought at that market!
