As all the great places of yesterday have closed or mutated into a commercial shell of its former self (Dunn's, Ben's, Reuben's), there is one remaining temple to smoked meat. While some foodies rave of newer places that have opened outside the downtown core, none have the history and authenticity of Schwartz's. While, yes, it has been bought over several... More

I drove 2hrs+ on a Sunday to come here for a sandwich. Best smoke meat and the atmosphere (family style dinning) is fun!

I guess it's a must place if you're visiting Montreal. Smoked meat is delicious, Service is average but quick & The look is vantage and original. Be ready for some lineup waiting though.

It's genuine. The waiters are almost too nice. The smoked meat is wonderful. It's great to look at the pictures of the famous people who have visited this place as you chow down. We were there on a Wednesday in February and there was a line-up to get in. This might be emperor's clothes territory but... it's just a smoked... More

Love it, was tasty, but could be cheaper. You have cash and credit card options to pay, but less service in the credit card section. Dont forget to give a tip , they will be mad to see you dont pay a tip😎

I decided on medium fat and that was a great choice the flavor... More

No frills. Authentic. Excellent, 'out-of-this-world' and top quality smoke-meat! Must try for anyone visiting Montreal.

Overall I'm glad I went to Schwartz's but I'm not sure if it was worth the hype. Don't get me wrong, the food was good and the staff was friendly but the smoked meat sandwich wasn't life changing.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
