Sad end for Cosmos family
The old man Tony was killed by his youngest son overnight. I am just in shock.
That is horrible. He was always so kind. I didn't go there often, for reasons of geography and calories, but was pleased to indulge every once in a blue moon, when in that part of NDG. He worked so hard.
For readers not from Montréal, this from the CBC MTL website:
Neighbours say the victim is Tony Koulakis, the founder of Cosmos Snack Bar, a legendary greasy spoon restaurant in Montreal's Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough.
A popular documentary, "Man of Grease", was made about him.
All my condolences to the family. Tony was indeed very kind everytime I went and would put on a special smile when the kids came with me. A sad loss.
Holy crap read about a murder of an 86 yr old VSL man this am then in the afternoon i read about Tony's passing. Then I see this post and figured OP was just mixing up his story. Sad, condolences to the family.
How awful. My condolences to the family. NDG was home in the 90s. There was nothing like a Cosmos breakfast after a late night.
