Montreal Recommendations?

Gavri Jun 25, 2013 07:53 AM

Heading to Montreal next week. It looks like the last discussion is a year old and some of the restaurants mentioned have since closed. Any updated recommendations? I'm looking for both casual (i.e. pizza) and nicer. Thanks.

    Did you find any places you liked?
    I am in Montreal now and after spending my first week here sick with stomach flu, I am starting to explore kosher options that involve more than applesauce and plain crackers.
    I ate at Mozart on Queen Mary. It was better than average. I had a tasty lasagna ($16), which contained slices of eggplant & sweet pepper in addition to the usual ingredients. My friend had a falafel plate (about $13 as I recall), very elegantly presented and delicious. The café hafuch (cappuccino) left a lot to be desired however.
    I also visited the IGA in Cavendish Mall, which lives up to what I had heard about having an extensive kosher section, including fresh meat and dairy. There is also a counter for prepared items like BBQ chicken, egg rolls, etc.

      This was my thread. It's only a few months old. I don't think these places have closed.

        Sounds like Gourmetti is worth a try. I can even get my coffee there!

          Is Montreal known for its coffee that you're searching for a place to get a latte there? If mediocre is all you need I assume you should be able to find a Starbucks all over town.

            No, I'm addicted to cafe hafuch & was worried I would not be able to find a good kosher version in Mtl.

          Thanks, for some reason that didn't come up on my initial search. Thanks for the info.

            Umm ... I think that's the year old discussion the OP referred to. I'm also heading to Montreal this summer, so have a personal interest in the subject.
            What I want most is a place to have a great -- or even mediocre -- cafe hafuch.
