French Restaurant

Cafes

Café
“Authentic Italian coffee joint with amazing coffee & great canolis, a perfect sample the multicultural and hip neighborhood.”
  • 245 locals recommend
Park
“The Chalet is actually not the main attraction, its the 180 degree view of the city. Take Serpentine path , or Camille Houde trail to access the Mont Royal Chalet , the paths along the way will also make you pass by Beaver lake ( how Canadian eh ! ). You can lounge / run / bike here during the summer or have some winter fun on the outdoor ice rink.”

Sandwich Place
“Get here early because the place fills up quickly during lunch hour. Located in the heart of Old Montreal, it's a delicious lunch spot. The cuban sandwich is a must-have if you eat meat!!! ”
  • 124 locals recommend

  • 163 locals recommend
Bakery
“Best Bread in Montreal. Champignons au chocolat blanc are to dye for! A must.”
  • 116 locals recommend
Café
“Light brunch menu, a funky mix of Mediterranean & Oriental cuisine (check their menu before you go). Accompanied with exquisite coffee. If you’re looking for a more traditional North American menu, stop by L’Oeufrier right on the corner then stop by the Arts Café to get a coffee to digest ;)”

Bagel Shop
“Hot bagels out of the oven! Sesame seed is traditional Montréal style. Grab a warm bagel and a cream cheese to go and eat it as soon as you walk out on the street. Possibly grab a coffee from Cafe Neve on the way. I like to stock up and buy a dozen and freeze them to eat at home. I love them with eggs and cheese. ”

Bakery
“Mamie Clafoutis is by far my favourite bakery! They make me blush every time I go in because I love them so much. They have perfected the quiche. J’adore le petit quiche pour une petit déjeuner. The grilled vegetables with goat cheese is like ratatouille in a quiche. C’est magnifique. Thé clafoutis, quiche, baguettes, crossaient, breads, everything is amazing! There is a sitting area above the bakery with wifi in where one can work and eat. I saw a lady with a Tuna sandwich on a baguette with a coffee on a tray last week. I was envious of her as I took my quiche to go. It looked delicious. I have friends who spend their breakfast and/or lunch here while working. I’ve only ever ordered to go but it’s a great place to stay. ”
