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.

I booked this tour as an activity to do with our bachelorette party during our weekend stay in Montreal and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our stay! Caroline was our tour guide and she was a gem! She was very knowledgeable about the food and the history of Mile End and Montreal in general. On top of that, she was very funny, professional, and sweet. The tour was organized and paced efficiently so that in the end, we were not too stuffed, just perfectly full and satisfied. The food selections were on point and we loved the stop at the Theatre Rialto! This tour comes highly recommended.

Sebastian was our tour guide and he was terrific. Eminently familiar with the neighbourhood with
all its nuances. Made sure that he had the chance to interact with all on the tour. Treated us to
extra water on a very hot day! Food was really good. No need to bother with lunch. Just great!

Our guide was Sebastian and our group was large. Sebastian did an excellent job, not only explaining all foods but sharing his knowledge of Montreal. He made sure everyone felt included and gave fantastic recommendations when asked. This tour is worth every penny and come hungry. The portions are much larger than most food tours and we covered a lot of ground. A great way to spend a half day for sure.
