It’s almost certainly the easiest sugar shack to get to if you live in Montreal, and it opens this weekend on Notre-Dame West, in Saint-Henri. Cabane Urbaine.
As Eater previously reported, it comes from Terra Perma, a sustainable farming collective in the Laurentians — and yes, they do produce their own maple syrup (it’ll be served at the cabane à sucre. It’s setting up in Café Rose-de-Lima, which has been given a woodsy makeover: it’s now a “fantastical forest setting”, in the words of the team.
A flat price of $30 ($20 for kids) gets you all of the following — and some upscale extras like smoked salmon and doughnuts are available for $5 extra.
- Fresh, rustic bread
- Soup of the shack — peas soup
- Eggs — rustic style
- Cabbage salad
- Big daddy beans
- Home-style potatoes with Quebec thyme and garlic
- Cold maple wood smoked bacon
- Merguez with smoked adobo peppers
- Grandma's marinades and ketchup
- Maple pie — pure butter, pure maple
They’re also taking reservations for all weekends they’re open.
STATUS — Cabane Urbaine is open weekends from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 3580 Notre-Dame West, until April 30.
