Montreal, Travel

Where to Eat In Montreal

I can’t believe my trip to Montreal was already two months ago! I’m finally getting around to sharing my trip update. Better late than never right? The best part of any trip for me is always the food. I love trying new to me foods and restaurants. Some of the places the hubby and I ate at were recommendations and some we just randomly found passing by.

Burger Bar

This restaurant was my favorite. It was so good, the hubby and I went here for dinner twice. Their poutine and burgers were so good.

Always end dinner with dessert, ALWAYS!

L’Gros Luxe Mile End

L’Gros Luxe was like a little island oasis in the middle of a winter wonderland! The hubby and I sat here and enjoyed our brunch for hours and the waiters were so nice. A place that doesn’t rush you when eating is always enjoyable.

The hubby had to have the fried chicken and french toast!

There are multiple locations throughout Montreal and we had brunch at the Mile End location. I highly recommend their Benedict poutine – breakfast potatoes, cheese, hollandaise sauce and a fried egg can’t be beaten.

The mimosas are pretty perfect too.

La Baraque du Vieux St-Vincent

This is a cute little hole in the wall type place in Old Montreal. The hubby and I stopped here for lunch after a morning of sightseeing and shopping.

They had a pretty big menu selection including different pizzas but the hubby and I had poutine of course. When in Rome, right?

Delices Erable et Cie

If you love maple then this cute little shop in Old Montreal is absolutely a place you should stop at for a little treat. Everything Delices Erable & Cie has to offer is infused with Canadian maple syrup.

I recommend the maple gelato or one of the maple butter spreads. Their spreads and syrups make really cute souvenir gifts too!

We totally acted like tourists and had poutine at least once every day in Montreal but it was just so good! Our loaded fries have nothing on Canadian poutine. Writing this post is really making me crave poutine now!

Montreal was such a great city to explore and stop in places to eat. We didn’t need to make reservations for any restaurant except L’Gros Lux.

I’ll be recapping more of my Montreal trip soon and sharing where we went sightseeing.

    I must live under a rock because I’ve never heard of poutine before this post. I gotta get out more! Montreal looks like it knows how to make burgers too. I love that there’s an “Old Montreal” to explore. Putting it on my travel bucket list!

      You’re not the only one under a rock. I didn’t know what poutine was until after the trip was booked.

    This is great! I go to Montreal frequently and normally avoid Crescent Street like the plague, but I’ll try that burger bar!

      Crescent street wasn’t too crowded when I was there but it could have been the time of year.

    It looks like y’all ate at some pretty great places. I think the Burger Bar would be my favorite.. Burgers are so classic, and I love trying local burger places like that.

    Everything looks so yummy! I am fascinated with poutine and want to try it. We do have fries with cheese and gravy here that I love, but Canada’s version just looks better.

    I’ve heard Montreal has such a great food scene. I was there as a kid and remember a restaurant that let you make your own garlic bread and thinking it was the coolest thing.
