Wondering what to do on a cold March day?!
Visit Little Italy and Le Marché Jean-Talon! Foodies, shoppers and cultural thrill-seekers should certainly take the metro (blue line De Castelneau) out to St-Laurent street (near Ste-Zotique) and visit this cultural district. Even if you are on a budget, there are many affordable eats within the market itself or along St-Laurent Street.
These are some of my favourite things to do with my mom (Linda) when we have some time off. Remember, that everyone is happier and healthier on a full stomach!
1. Visit Milano’s: This is a traditional Italian grocery store with excellent an selection of cold cuts, cheeses, pastas, fruits and vegetables. I always buy my breakfast biscotti here.
2. Have an espresso at Caffè Epoca: You can’t go wrong by having a caffeine break! Remember, Italians usually have cappuccinos for breakfast–so don’t be surprised if the barista wonders why you want a cappuccino at 4pm. (Lol)
3. Grab a Zeppola at La Cornetteria.
Zeppole are delicious…I will provide a photo of one on my next visit.
5. Dream about moto’s and Vespa’s!
6. Visit Jean-Talon Market to gather some fresh Québec produce!
