Caffe San Simeon

Caffe San Simeon was my surprise coffee discovery.  I have walked in front of it for many years and never noticed it.  I guess that Caffe Italia was my unique destination in Little Italy and never gave two shits about other places.

Schwartz’s Smoked Meat Montreal

  Schwartz’s is truly an institution in Montreal.  It was way high on my list of places to visit and I came out with a renewed appreciation for this restaurant.

Pho Thanh Long

I ended up going to eat pho at Thanh Long twice during my visit to Montreal.  The shop which is located next to the iconic Foufounes Électriques bar has been my go to place for as long as I remember.

Hung Phat Banh Mi

I never ate a banh mi in Montreal before I left for Japan in 2008 but they seem to be every where now. I decided to skip the fashionable fusion banh mi places to eat the real thing at Hung Phat on St-Denis street just off Jean-Talon street.

Myriade at Club Monaco

I stumbled on Myriade on my first day in Montreal and a gem of coffee shop like this could easily be over seen considering the fact that it’s hidden in the basement of a clothing store on Ste-Catherine street.

Café Myriade

During my very short stay in Montréal, a lot of people mentioned this coffee shop located on Mackay street as the epicenter of good coffee and I ended up going twice, just to make sure they were right.

Café Le Couteau

When I was still in Japan, I researched coffee shops in Montréal and Le Couteau seem to be floating at the top of the list of many people, so I took my jet lagged self to this café located on rue St-Denis, not too far  North from rue Mont-Royal.
