Been a go to place for family and friends since I was small. Old fashioned smoked meat, great fries, cherry coke, even matzo ball soup. Hasn't changed in decades despite that it is always clean and wholesome.

I had spent several hours in the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Museum and figured what better place to immerse myself in Jewish Culture than a classic Jewish Delicatessen. I was tempted to but declined the Givelte Fish and Matzo Ball Soup, but rolled up my sleeves for a True Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich replete with rye bread and yellow mustard. The... More

This is the first deli where I discovered one of life's great not on the menu secrets: the one and a half. Eating a smoked meat sandwich - and I urge you to do so at this Deli, a lean old fashioned would be my recommendation - is a wonderful experience. So wonderful that when you get to the end... More

I don't know why it's not on the menu, but ask for the smoked whitefish salad (make sure to say "salad" or you'll get a big hunk of fish instead of a chopped salad) on a bagel or rye bread and they'll make you one. I used to live in Montreal years ago and I still crave it. This place... More

They have a variety of styles of SM but I like the regular medium and it is delicious and I never have a salty or chemical taste after. The fries... More

We drove to find this place In a recent trip to montreal and found it like something out of another place,everything is in English which suited us just fine but different... More

We've been going here for 40 years or more Best smoked meat... not as thick as Abes or Schwarz's and not the thin pastrami like Bens' Rubins or Chenoies .. How do you explain smoked meat to a non-montrealer .. well .. you just have to try them and see what you like. Do give this place a try though,... More
