No need to steal from the rich to feed the poor, all you have to do sign up for a shift at Robin des Bois.
From busboys to waiters, this cozy Plateau bistro is run completely by volunteers with all profits (even tips) donated to local charities.
And thankfully they havent skimped on service, ambiance or food. We were more thanimpressed with the delectable duck salad ($14.50), haddock tagine ($17.50) and cool glass of Pinot Grigio ($7).
Chef Sébastien Courville (the only paid member of staff) uses organic and locally-sourced ingredients, including fresh herbs and edible flowers from the restaurants back garden.
Be sure to make a reservation, tables at this small eatery book-up fast, and so do the volunteer shifts.
