Mile End Montreal Food Tour

Mile End Montreal Food Tour

Sample the amazing gastronomic diversity of Montreal during this small-group, 3-hour food tour, limited to just 16 guests. During the course of your visit covering 1.3 miles (2.2km) you’ll sample a range of Quebec’s and Montreal’s food specialties, as well as culinary delights from around the world.

Start your visit in the bohemian enclave of Mile End at 11am where you’ll meet your guide. This hub of creativity has long been home to a wealth of artists, writers and musicians like The Arcade Fire. Head with your guide to the day’s first stop at La Panthère Verte (The Green Panther), a vegan eatery located on Rue St Viateur, famous for its crispy falafel.

Continue the excursion by walking to Cholaterie Geneviève Grandbois, where you will savour a decadent brownie and a hot chocolate. Proceed next to the famous Bagel St-Viateur, a store that’s been producing what many consider to be the world’s best bagels since 1957. Then take some time to burn off your calories as you walk to the Rialto Theatre, a 1920s-era theatre, modelled on the Paris Opera House. Once you have sufficiently digested, you can get excited for some more outstanding bites.

You will savour a Wilensky's "Special" sandwich at the iconic Montreal lunch counter, or if it's a Sunday, you will venture to Boucherie Lawrence, a local butcher shop that focuses on selling locally-raised meats. During your stop you’ll get to sample some delicious cheeses accompanied by charcuterie (selections of sausage, pâte and cured meats).

Next stop is Dhrogheria Fine, a tiny shop dedicated to one single, delicious thing: pasta sauce. Franco, the owner, reproduces his Italian grandmother's recipe and serves it with fresh gnocchi. If it's summer and not raining out, save some room for ice cream! Skip the line at Kem Coba, Mile End's notoriously exquisite ice cream shop. During the colder months and rainy days, you will have the chance to end your tour in delight at Boucherie Lawrence.

This is my second food tour with the Local Montreal Food Tours and it did not disappoint by one bit. As a known carnivore my whole life, the tour made me fall in love with vegan falafel. Whaaat! Our guide Vera was friendly and knowledgable, so not only do you get great food along the walking tour, you get to experience Mile End as introduced by a local who clearly loves the city. Vera was also very inclusive with my girlfriend who clearly had fun despite not having a great command of the English language. 5 Stars, highly recommended.

We really enjoyed the tour and our guide Christian was knowledgeable and personal. The food was good and we left full. It was nice learning about the Mile End part of Montreal. This area is not part of Old Montreal but still worth knowing about and seeing. I recommend this tour.

This was my first food tour, but I will be doing more! It was excellent. It was an eclectic mix of foods to,sample and the portions were very generous, especially the to oath sauce and gnocchi and the falafel sandwich. Do not eat breakfast on the day of your tour! The guide gave us information about the development of the area as well as the food. I highly recommend this tour.

The tour visited many shops that otherwise would have been missed. A wonderful sampling of the culinary establishments in the Mile End section of Montreal. Our guide, Vera, was excellent with her knowledge of not only the places we visited but also made great suggestions of other areas to see. Would do it again

Our tour guide I believe his name was Darren, could have been Aaron took us on an intimate, tasty, and informative tour of this beautiful neighborhood in Montreal. Can't really say enough about our tour guide who went out of his way to make us all feel comfortable, informed, and entertained. He even stayed and answered all of our questions for another thirty minutes, pointing us in the right directions to all of our different interests, marking on our maps and explaining in detail how to get to each destination. The tour itself was wonderful, especially the food - had one of the best falafel sandwiches I've ever had. If you're looking for a relaxing stroll through the Mile End neighborhood of Montreal while sampling great food, you must take this tour!
