Top store recommendations from locals

“Mamie Clafoutis is by far my favourite bakery! They make me blush every time I go in because I love them so much. They have perfected the quiche. J’adore le petit quiche pour une petit déjeuner. The grilled vegetables with goat cheese is like ratatouille in a quiche. C’est magnifique. Thé clafoutis, quiche, baguettes, crossaient, breads, everything is amazing! There is a sitting area above the bakery with wifi in where one can work and eat. I saw a lady with a Tuna sandwich on a baguette with a coffee on a tray last week. I was envious of her as I took my quiche to go. It looked delicious. I have friends who spend their breakfast and/or lunch here while working. I’ve only ever ordered to go but it’s a great place to stay. ”

“This is the official Quebec liquor store, you can buy beer and wine at "depanneurs" (small corner stores dotted all around Montreal) but you can only purchase strong liquor from the SAQ, they also have a better selection of wine then what available at the "deps".”

Taco Place
“Great mexican food in the middle of chinatown! 10 minute walk from my door. NOT bring your own wine. Expect a lineup, seating is at large tables so expect to be seated beside a stranger.”
