I would have loved to go to "Au pied caching" for a sugaring off but of course they are fully booked for the season. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to go for a really fantastic sugaring off meal??
In the city, Sparrow is doing some sugar-shack style brunches again this year, starting next weekend. Had it last year and it was very good, but not innovative, just high-quality traditional fare. I remember it seemed pricy at $30+tax/tip, but probably still cheaper than a drive out to the country.

There's also a Laurent Godbout pop-up in Old Montreal where you can probably expect something a little fancier. Details here: http://montreal.eater.com/archives/20...
I'm not certain I would use the adjective "fantastic" to describe the food at any Cabane a Sucre. But these are more in line with the style of the Cabane a Sucre Au Pied de Cochon
La Tablée des Pionniers, 1357 rue St-Faustin, Saint-Faustin-Lac-Carré
Les Éclusiers par Apollo, 400 rue de la Commune Ouest
A sugar shack was featured in the Gazette last year, that was defined as authentic. I think it is in the St. Lazare area, cannot seem to find the link. You might try this one, but I have not been there:
I have been to Sucrerie de la Montagne in Rigaud, I did not care for it, and found it very expensive. I will look for my newspaper clippings to see if i can find the name of the one featured in the Gazette.
Sorry my geography is lacking, are any near St Zenon, at least by sled? years ago we ate lunch......
