Save Place
1351 Rue Rachel E, Montréal, QC H2J 2K2, Canada
Le Lab is the kind of bar that only locals and the faithful know about. No windows, no loud music, no big sign outside, an unassuming facade—but you would be very sad to miss out on this place. The "labtenders" have come up with an original...
Save Place
4807 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2T 1R6, Canada
Montreal’s wine bar par excellence, Le Comptoir gets its name from the long counter that extends on the small space’s left side, with bar seating that gives onto the open kitchen. It’s a show in itself, to see how well (and fast, during rush time)...
Save Place
4175 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2W 1Y7, Canada
Not to be mistaken for the popular izakaya of the same name (and same owners) down the street, on Boulevard Saint-Laurent and Avenue des Pins, this Big In Japan is on the corner of Boulevard Saint-Laurent and Rue Rachel. You may not notice the...

6731 Avenue de l'Esplanade, Montréal, QC H2V 4P9, Canada
When the weather is warm, many Montreal residents flock to an off-the-beaten path bit of Berlin in the city’s Mile-Ex district (the current name for the industrial section of Little Italy). The atmosphere is decidedly unpretentious at the...
Save Place
4869 Av du Parc, Montréal, QC H2V 4E7, Canada
This favorite spot turned what used to be a dismal block on Avenue du Parc into a happening strip, inspiring a wave of restaurants and businesses to open around it. The bar’s stylish interiors are characterized by narrow, long tables for intimate...
Save Place
425 Rue Mayor, Montréal, QC H3A 1N9, Canada
With an interior designed by Zébulon Perron (who also did Buvette Chez Simone and Hof Kelsten bakery), Furco is a cozy-cum-industrial spot in downtown Montreal, where tasteful tippling spots are few and far between. The atmosphere is a big part of...
Save Place
4858 Rue Sherbrooke O, Westmount, QC H3Z 1H1, Canada
This gorgeously designed eatery clinks and clatters with happy diner satisfaction throughout the week, but the evenings and weekends are particularly happening. It’s a real meeting spot for hot young things and groups of well-to-do friends after...
Save Place
740 Rue William, Montréal, QC H3C 1P1, Canada
With spaces for rent for private events upstairs and an idiosyncratic layout that makes it just as suited for banquet-style group parties as for quiet meetings or romantic getaways, Le Local is everything to everyone. It keeps the crowds coming...
Save Place
Av. Pdte. Masaryk 407, Polanco, Polanco III Secc, 11550 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
A nondescript shopping arcade in a tony neighborhood might not be the place you'd expect to find one of the world's top restaurants—but if there's any place that reinforces the adage about not judging a book by its cover, it's Mexico City....
Save Place
3927 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2W 2M4, Canada
This glittering Plateau icon is like a piece of Paris relocated to Montreal, complete with accents. Typical French appetizers like Du Puy lentil and squid salad or marrowbones served with crispy toasts and sea salt precede a set menu including...
Save Place
900 Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle, Montréal, QC H2Z 2B2, Canada
Normand Laprise is a legend in the culinary world of Montréal, a pioneer who elevated the city's dining scene with an emphasis on local and seasonal products, putting the bounty of Québec at the center of his menu. When he opened...
Save Place
1425 Rue Jeanne-Mance, Montréal, QC H2X 2J4, Canada
Ask any Montrealer the question "Which is the fanciest restaurant in town?" and chances are Toqué! will be a frequent answer. Indeed, quite fancy. But also quite expensive. Luckily, chef Charles-Antoine Crête, once mentored by Toqué's Normand...
Save Place
1257 Avenue Bernard, Outremont, QC H2V 1V8, Canada
What started out as a crazy musing during a family dinner has turned out, surprisingly, to be one of Montreal's most appreciated establishments. Indeed, when Francine Brûlé mentioned that she was thinking of taking on a new project, nobody could...

3895 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2W 1X9, Canada
While New York has its pastrami, Montréal is the home of smoked meat. (The preparation of both is similar: A beef brisket is cured in spices for a week, then hot-smoked and finally boiled before being served.) Though others may question the...

138 Avenue Atwater, Montréal, QC H4C 2H6, Canada
Atwater Market is a foodie's delight. I could spend hours browsing its bakeries, cheese counters, and gourmet specialty shops offering everything from Thai chilli sauces to sea salt caramel coulis. Truth be known, I never really succumb to these...
Save Place
34 Avenue Fairmount O, Montréal, QC H2T 2M1, Canada
Wilensky’s is sort of an institution in the Mile End. Family-owned since its opening in 1932, the place is famous for its extremely cheap snacks, no-nonsense approach, and retro decor. Pressed tin ceiling, Kik Cola clock, ring-up cash register,...

Mile End, Montreal, QC, Canada
The Mile End is Montreal's version of Brooklyn, Sodermälm, Shoreditch, and Kreuzberg put together. Hipsters, exotic eateries, and vintage shops abound. Mile End is also the cradle of Montreal’s music scene, cultural diversity and all things trendy...

4524 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2T 1R4, Canada
Like a slice of the Old Country, Hof Kelsten is the only artisanal bakery in town that makes a real, classic rye bread with kimmel seeds. In fact the breads at this Saint-Laurent Boulevard bakery are so delicious that renowned restaurants Toqué!...

2491 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal, QC H3J 1N6, Canada
What can I say about Joe Beef that nobody else has said? All I can say is that I had a great meal here. This is definitely one you have to book quite a while in advance to get a reservation and expect that you'll have to go early. For me, it was...
Save Place
Montreal, QC H2Y 3Z2, Canada
Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours is one of the oldest chapels in the city—from 1771, to be exact. It isn't particularly big, or particularly tall, but something about it is so special that it overshadows the more massive spires of the city. Back in the...

575 Rue Hovey, North Hatley, QC J0B 2C0, Canada
From Montreal, it's only an hour and a half drive up to picturesque Lake Massawippi. We send clients to the Manoir Hovey, an inn which was built as a home in 1900 and is based, loosely, on the design for Mount Vernon. The inspiration is perhaps...

380 Rue Dorchester, Québec, QC G1K 6A7, Canada
The Saint-Roch neighborhood, a 15-minute walk from Vieux-Quebec (Old Quebec), is a popular place to hang out, thanks in part to this microbrewery and bistro. All the beers are handmade in old-fashioned styles. Try the Malgven, a toasty amber ale....
Save Place
310 Rue Saint-Roch, Québec, QC G1K 6S2, Canada
When I say that La Barberie is Québec’s coolest hangout I’m really not exaggerating. I promise! For starters, there is no food on the menu snacks (at least on the day I visited). This is actually not a bad thing because you can just bring your own...
Save Place
1412 Rue Sainte Élisabeth, Montréal, QC H2X 1L4, Canada
Tucked down a nondescript route off a much busier thoroughfare, the building out front isn't something to write home about. But the secret garden out back is one of the best places in town to grab a pint. The bar serves a litany of cocktails and a...

Montreal, QC, Canada
Another way Montrealers enjoy the balmy summer weather is by spending countless hours in cafés and restaurants, but not just any random ones: the ones that open out onto the street or way high up into the sky, the ones that offer a more...

Mile End, Montreal, QC, Canada
The second great dilemma that plagues Mile End, along with coffee. Both these bagel providers have been operating since the neighborhood used to be predominantly Jewish, in the case of Fairmount Bagel since 1949, and in the case of St-Viateur...

Mile End, Montreal, QC, Canada
Mile End has two great rivalries: bagels and coffee. People have been known to hinge their identity on whether they like Fairmount or St-Viateur bagels, and whether they enjoy their morning latte at Café Olimpico or Club Social. Literally a block...

3424 Av du Parc, Montréal, QC H2X 2H5, Canada
A Montreal favorite, this wine bar is known for its elegant food and drinks— and comes recommended highly by Ritz-Carlton concierge Simon Bajouk. The wine selection is vast and the staff is extremely helpful in guiding visitors to something that...

3004 Chemin de la Chapelle, Mont-Tremblant, QC J8E 1E1, Canada
Restaurant La Quintessence & Winebar is an excellent spot for a little apres-ski action, should you be inclined to dine and imbibe after a day on the slopes. The French cuisine, informed by Quebecois traditions, has earned countless Canadian...

116 Chemin Séguin, Mont-Tremblant, QC J8E 1H8, Canada
Should the slopes and trails of Mont-Tremblant not satisfy your need for speed, sign up for a race car driving course with Jim Russell's racing school on a former Formula One track. Classes range from a two-hour test drive to more intensive...

1770 Montée Kavanagh, Mont-Tremblant, QC J8E 3J8, Canada
At Boutique Nycole Saint Louis, they create quality hand-made footwear and specialize in golf shoes—golf is to Tremblant in summer what skiing is in winter. Regardless, many shoppers come for her lace-up, lined ankle boots which are also carefully...
Save Place
3035 Chemin de la Chapelle, Mont-Tremblant, QC J8E 1E1, Canada
This refined cafe serves strong pre-slope coffee and after ski gluhwein (mulled wine) in a cozy setting. The tiled floor, dark wood bar, and menu give it a central European feel. Here you'll find quiet conversation rather than the boisterous...

1432 Rue Mackay, Montréal, QC H3G 2H7, Canada
The epitome of the indie coffee shop in Montreal, Myriade is a long-loved spot for hipsters, indie music connoisseurs, and lovers of good coffee. Although the indoor place is relatively small, the outdoor deck makes up for it if you are quick...

252 Rue Rachel E, Montréal, QC H2W 1E5, Canada
What makes Réplika stand out from the rapidly growing Montreal indie coffee-shop scene is that it offers all things Turkish. People come here not only to gorge on Turkish goodness, but also to enjoy the plentiful sun, the ample seating space, the...

65 Rue Beaubien E, Montréal, QC H2S 1R1, Canada
Although it would be easy to walk past Café Odessa and not notice it at all, locals know that this is one of the few detours that are actually worth it. With its refined and tasteful decor reminiscent of seaside Russia, with miniature sail boats...

200 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal, QC H2Y 1T3, Canada
Coffee in Old-Montreal used to be a sad affair ruled by international chains that shall not be named; that was until Tommy opened its doors and blessed the tourists and workers of the area with its delightful espresso shots. But despite the fact...

301 Rue Émery, Montréal, QC H2X 1J2, Canada
I came upon this quirky cafe while trying to find a nearby brewery. Coffee doesn't often distract me when I'm in the mood for a pint, I can tell you that. The barista (is that the right term?) on hand knew an awful lot about Joe, and convinced me...
