Hermas Gibeau's dream of sharing his trademark beverage, the Orange Julep, materialized in 1932 with the opening of his retail storefront on St. Laurent Boulevard. By transforming his building into the shape of an orange, he created a landmark: The largest orange sphere in the world in 1964. Over the years, Gibeau Orange Julep has become a Montreal icon drawing folks in with its nostalgic charm and famous juice. Beyond that signature drink, this spot specializes in classic diner fare like Montreal-style hot dogs, poutine and burgers, and they serve it all until 4 a.m. The weekly summer car shows add to the experience, attracting vintage car enthusiasts on Wednesdays in the warmer seasons.
