With this clothes shop on the corner of Rue Saint-Paul and Rue Saint-Pierre, and Pépin Maison just down the block, Pépin is a bit of an Old Montreal
empire, where you’ll find everything from the latest pair of shoes by Miista to a home-designed pepper grinder made from a piece of branch. The aesthetic tends towards natural fibers and neutral colors in the clothing as well as the home ware, which focuses on linens, wools, chunky woods and leather. In the back of the boutique, past the couches, tables and giant light fixtures, Pépin Maison boasts a healthy café on lunch hours, with a tasty selection of fresh-pressed juices and creative salads and sandwiches. Make a day of it.
