Montreal: Food Tour of Old Montreal
We met the tour guide and our merry group of 12 at Crew Collective and Cafe. It used to be the headquarters of the Royal Bank of Canada. The bank moved out. Now it’s been taken over as a cafe and co-working space. They even left the bank teller windows intact! From there we embarked on a 3 hour, 1.5 mile walk of Old Montreal.
Had a great time! We found it funny that most of the participants lived in the Montreal region. Some said they rarely get to Montreal’s city center, so they thought this was a good opportunity!
- Crew Collective and Cafe for authentic Montreal bagels with salmon
- Cookie Stefanie, a gluten-free bakery for some delicious carrot cake
- Le Petit Dep, for pâté chinois–sort of like Shepherd’s Pie
- Taberna, a restaurant celebrating Montreal’s Portuguese immigrants for a cod salad and soup
- Bistro Les Soeurs Grises, a brewpub, for Quebec beer and cheese
- Soupe Soup, for dessert–pouding chômeur, loosely translated to “unemployment cake.”
After the tour, bellies full, we walked around more of Old Montreal that we missed. Wonderful experience!
