The fourth option is for those who want to celebrate with a festive brunch. If that’s your preference, Perles et Paddock is the perfect choice. Note that the main menus come with a bottle of wine – or sparkling wine, for brunch.
H4C par Dany Bolduc
The talented and ingenious Chef Dany Bolduc is preparing three breathtaking menus: the first for Christmas Eve, the second for New Years and the third for brunch – so many delicious ways to celebrate!

Oh, and the English muffins are divine!
