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.

We loved our tour guide and all the history and food along the way. We were stuffed from all the food. We did walk back and get a dozen bagels . He was so informed and had cute stories to tell along the way. We even stopped afterwards in the coffee shop for some great coffee. It was our first time doing a food tour, now I am looking into a few more when we travel.

I really enjoyed the food tour around the Mile End! Our tour guide was welcoming and funny, and knew everything about Montreal and the area. The tour was maybe 10-15 people, so it was a great size to not feel overwhelmed. The food was amazing and left us full afterwards. I would recommend this tour!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Darren was our guide, and he was the BEST! This tour is not only delicious (samples are large portions) but also a great way to see/learn about the city. We did this as part of my bachelorette weekend, and it is certainly one of the most memorable parts of our trip! Thank you!!
