Céline Dion Stops By Montreal's Schwartz Deli, Buys Lunch For Fans

This totally makes the long wait worthwhile.

Between working on her new album, performing at her Vegas residency and summer tour, not to mention launching a new fashion line, it's safe to say Céline Dion is keeping herself busy. But even the busiest people need to stop and enjoy lunch.

On Tuesday, the Grammy-winning singer appeared at Montreal's famous Schwartz's treating diners to a free lunch in honour of her late husband and former Schwartz's co-owner René Angélil.

The 48-year-old singer also signed autographs, took photos with fans and teamed up with the owners to donate food to various charitable organizations.

Dion and Angélil became part owners of Schwartz's in 2012. "It's the most unique restaurant in the world and we're thrilled to be a part of it," Angélil said upon announcing the venture, CBC reports.

Dion is likely to be spotted a few more times in her home province. She is scheduled to play four more shows in Quebec over the next week.
