Le Fouvrac named the gem of Montreal by Delta Recommends
MONTREAL, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - Employees at Delta Centre-Ville and Delta Montréal chose Le Fouvrac as one of Montreal's best kept secrets. Over the past year, Delta employees in Montreal have compiled their personal recommendations on the best places to eat, browse, work out, relax and more, as part of Delta Recommends.
Delta Recommends is an employee-driven initiative that enables staff to share their diverse interests, tastes and experiences with guests.
Today's travelers look for a more authentic travel experience. Delta Recommends goes beyond the standard tourist destinations to show guests the lesser known special places in our communities. The Delta Recommends database houses thousands of hidden gems in Montreal and in communities across Canada.
Located on trendy and bustling Laurier Avenue in the Plateau Mont-Royal, Le Fouvrac serves up more than just coffee. This shop has been serving gourmets and coffee connoisseurs in Montreal for years. It is a charming fine food store that doubles as a coffee shop, with coffee supplied by the Montreal company Agga - top coffee experts.
"We have always worked hard to offer original goods and gifts in our unique store," said Marc Doré, owner of Le Fouvrac. "It's nice to know that Delta employees thought of us for this distinction as a top local gem."
Le Steak Frites and Gallerie d'art Le Bourget were also selected as hidden gems in Montreal.
"Delta Recommends is a great way to welcome guests into our community by providing them with the chance to experience the best of Montreal through the eyes of those who live, work and play there," said Raymond Larivée, Regional Vice President, Delta Hotels and Resorts, Quebec Region. "Our employees have a wealth of knowledge about their communities and this is our way of sharing it with our guests."
