This rustic-looking deli was originally a boucherie (butchery) and charcuterie, evidenced by the old-fashioned lettering on the window. These days, it’s known to locals as one of the best spots for a weekday lunch. The decor is kitschy: every inch of wall is covered with something, be it plastic ivy, jars of condiments for sale, or fake plastic hams hanging from the ceiling. But don’t let that deter you. This is a place for stick-to-your-ribs fare, including homemade pâtés, a variety of quiches, and a delicious, addictive cassoulet de maison. Locals swear by their soupe à l'oignon gratinée (French onion soup) and there are also lighter options including salads and crêpes. There’s a daily table d'hôte available for C$15, with the option on Friday and Saturday to add fois gras for C$5 more.
