I am glad I tried it, but it was not a must do if you are used to New York Jewish delis. A hot pastrami sandwich or corned beef sandwich in New York is better than a smoked meat sandwich in Montreal. But if you've not had the New York sandwiches, then definitely come here. The sandwich portion is humongous... More

Maybe I caught them on a bad day, or just received a bad batch, but the sandwich I had was quite dry and average tasting. Very disappointing. The smoked meat sandwich I picked up at Metro last week actually tasted better.

I always eat at Schwartz's every time I'm in Montreal. The decor is meh but the smoke meat is the best I've had.

Killer smoked meat sandwiches in the most iconic joint in the city. Packed day and night, this is not high gastronomy but just plain simply the best deli anywhere. Enjoy

Great old school deli. Had the poutine and smoked meat sandwich. Fast, friendly service and the food was excellent. May have to wait in line but it was worth it.

I have always wanted to try Schwartz's for many years just never seemed to have been in the area when I have come to visit Montreal - We didn't want to wait in line for a table so we went next door and got a sandwich and had a picnic in the car instead!! It is their little store -... More

We ate at Schwartz's at noon on Sunday May 21. We walked there after checking out Mount Royal. There are two ways to enjoy the meaty goodness that is their Montreal smoked meat sandwich: you can skip the dine-in line and slip into the take-out door OR you can wait in line for the unique opportunity to eat your food...

If you like a big sandwich then get a Schwartz smoked meat sandwich will go down well. It tastes superb and will satisfy most people.

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.
