This is my go to lunch spot. Their Naked Burrito Bowls are awesome (and gluten free). On a cold day their spicy chicken soup, will warm you up. Great service, consistently delicious.

This unpretentious restaurant is located in the gentrifying ( and now almost hipsterish) area of Point St. Charles ( or the Point as it was once known). The restaurant is a" joint" in the good sense of the word; small, cozy, eclectic décor, passionate staff....More

A very small place, very charming staff, authentic home made food. You don't go there for the decoration but for the food. Time after time i'm impress :)

Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the
factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have
been renovated into homes, museums, and small
businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its
Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge
galleries and an ever-expanding network of
restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the
mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the
