That St-Henri Sugar Shack Starts Slinging Syrup (And More) This Weekend

Get in while it lasts

Terra Perma

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
  • Pancakes

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.
