bkfast/lunch/dinner in montreal & quebec

I'll be visiting Montreal and Quebec City for a day or two, looking for some recommendations as to where to have breakfast/lunch/dinner!!! woohoo food galore...and yes dessert recommendation places are welcomed too. Not looking to spend ridiculous amounts of money though, up to $75pp for a really expensive dinner. I'm from NYC so I'm not looking for places it'll be like I never left NYC...rather I would enjoy local establishments & fun casual dining is best. Good tasting food is a must though (don't care about ambiance/decor, though cleanliness yes =).

Breakfast suggestions are much appreciated since that's the hardest thing to find on the boards.

Love seafood place recs, but I don't do raw.

  1. I'm also looking for recommendations. I'll be staying at the Sofitel on Rue Sherbrooke Ouest and Rue Peel, walking to the Fairmont le Reine Elizabeth to catch a shuttle to the convention center for three days - coffee, breakfast, and lunch along this route would be especially appreciated.

    Dinner can be anywhere within a reasonable cab ride.

      Replying to myself to share with others the amazing posts I found when researching this question. I cannot wait to come!

    2. If you want something that's unique to Montreal that will easily meet your budget and where you could probably still catch the crazy seafood platter in a fun an casual ambiance, Le Pied de Cochon is your only bet. Truly unique delicious food with friendly service. But be warned, portions a pretty bigs and it's a tribute to french cuisine with Québec ingredients so not so healthy but you only live once.

      As for breakfast, it might be a little out of the way for you but I truly enjoy Café Byblos. Iranian breakfast with a selection of original egg dishes (feta or dates omelettes) home made preserves, good hot chocolate and a selection of middle easter breads.

        I caught the "crazy seafood platter" a few weeks ago. It was a disappointment of tough, overcooked seafood. Stick with what PDC does best -superbly !
