Godmer’s Bakery

147 Morin Street (2016)

The west part of the restaurant is the Godmer building. In 1935, an agreement was negotiated before the notary J.L. Desjardins to establish the property line between the carter Adélard Godmer and the baker Sigefroi Desjardins. The brothers, Ti-Gus and Ti-Blanc Godmer, lived next to each other. When the train arrived in Sainte-Adèle, they provided a taxi service with a horse-drawn cart. Several restaurants appeared at this location in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Many will remember the renowned Pep’s Steak House in the 1990s.

147 Morin Street - detail

This building stands out with its Boomtown architectural style. Characteristic features include its cube form, two floors, low-pitched roof towards the rear and a bracketed cornice. A large second floor wooden porch is well protected by an overhang that spans the width of the front. The main door with moulding is of interest. Note the horizontal elements located above the façade’s door and windows. They are used to distribute the weight. The building retains much of its architectural authenticity.
