Geneviève Lauzière reports:

The original restaurant -- 40 feet in diameter and three stories tall -- was built in 1942 by Hermas Gibeau on Decarie Street in Montreal. Today the Decarie Expressway is a major freeway, and the surroundings of the restaurant have probably changed a lot since the 1940s. But "The "Julep" is still standing there serving homemade food and its very foamy and famous orange juice. The restaurant still operates as an old-fashioned drive-in. The waitresses wear short skirts and use roller skates in the summer. I know of two other Orange Julep restaurants in the Montreal area, one on Sherbrooke St. East, and the other on the South Shore.
