My dad is getting on a bit, and needs a decent meal delivery service in Montreal. Not Santropol Roulant, he can pay, and not a diet place, because he doesn't need to lose weight. Home cooked, wholesome food. Anyone know of any place?

    Hiya - I don't know of any services offhand and Googling wasn't fruitful. You may want to try contacting your dad's local CLSC or a seniors' centre to see if they have any recommendations - hopefully they can help!

    Some resources to explore:

    Good luck!

      You may want to try a personal chef service. If you google personal chef Montreal, you should come up with something.

        That's a great idea, cuisine_miche! I didn't think of searching with those terms, but it looks like there are a bunch of options out there.

        Thanks for those. We want to avoid CLSC/senior places, as the food isn't usually very good, hence my posting here. I'll try googling personal chef, hadn't though of that. Thanks again!

          I'm not sure whether you're looking for something with more frequent delivery, but http://milliner.ca might be worth checking out. They make frozen prepared meals from Jean-Talon Market ingredients, and the meals vary according to the seasonal ingredients available at any given time. The meals are microwavable or they can also be heated up in a conventional oven. I know they do deliveries, but am not sure of their terms. You might want to give them a call:

            I too am looking for a meal delivery service in Montreal but a diet one, like Jenny Craig, or The Zone which are of course available everywhere else in Canada but Quebec. Any ideas?

              Simply Wonderful catering in Westmount can provide the home cooked style meals and does this for a number of clients looking for well prepared good quality food at home without much more fuss than simply reheating it.

              If your dad is still in shape to heat his meals, then you might want to place an order for pickup a couple times a week.

              The prices are reasonable, and the menu is classified by dietary restrictions( ie. gluten or dairy free items).

                There is a restaurant/traiteur on Notre Dame called "Soupe Cafe"- a healthy lunch place that will prepare meals etc. for the week. If you call speak with Janine, she's the owner can give you details on costs/delivery etc.

                Soupe Café
                2725, rue Notre Dame Ouest
