Time for brunch

Sunday wouldn’t be Sunday without a hearty brunch! The following are some suggestions for places where you can linger over a delicious meal of gourmet delights….

Birdwatching around the Burbank Pond

Head for the Burbank Pond in Danvile and meander along the 4-km trail that encircles the water. A 290-metre long footbridge leads to a lookout tower, from which you’ll be able to spot several species of birds. Combine your walk with a stop at the Mante du Carré Marché public market. Stock up on food supplies and handcrafted goods or sit down for a meal at the Café-Resto de la Mante. The eatery offers an à la carte menu featuring market-fresh ingredients and home-baked pastries.
