CHEZ BERNARD, LE REPÈRE Tucked into an ancestral home, this lovely chocolate shop-grocery-caterer has all sorts of gourmet offerings from Québec and abroad. Impeccable service and a warm atmosphere make it a preferred destination for culinary devotees. There’s a gourmet menu with simple lunch choices, a list of prepared appetizers and dishes to take home. If you have trouble choosing between sweet and savoury, this isn’t the place to find inner peace. The deli counter has, among other things, foie gras torchon and European caviar while the pastry-chocolate counter is chock-full of sinfully delicious treats. To our great delight, Chef Bernard Minguy and company combine culture and pleasure divinely well under one roof. They also have a wonderful collection of privately imported wines.
