We have three suggestions for a sweet snack during your excursion. Le
Festin de Babette (4085 Saint-Denis Street) sells food products by
prestigious European brands, as well as a large assortment of ice cream
flavours. If gelato is what you are looking for, stop in at the
chocolatier Suite 88 (3957 Saint-Denis Street). Café Rockaberry is the
pie specialist. This place also serves sandwiches and salads, which you
can enjoy on a nice large terrace (4275 Saint-Denis Street).
For an unusual snack, try Brasserie Cherrier: hidden inside is a new
restaurant called Flammée, which serves Alsatian specialties prepared
by two former chefs from Laloux. Their signature dish is the
Flammekeuche, a kind of pizza from that region. North American and
Latin comfort food like burgers and empanadas are also on the menu.
