Went here for the first time last month and it was just as good the second time. I know my Polish food (from Greenpoint Brooklyn!) and Stash is the real thing. Pierogis are great but their kielbasa is fantastic...just the right amount of crispy! Wines are nice too! Will be back!

I tried the Stash Cafe for the first time for lunch. When I walked in, the restaurant was empty. When I walked out, it was completely full. Service was very kind and friendly. When I asked if I could have a dinner item for lunch, she said yes right away. I had the "menu du débutant". A nice mix of... More

Stash is located in Old Town Montreal and is a small and cozy café. The service is very friendly and helpful and the ethnic Eastern European food was well prepared. There is also a piano player who provides excellent good listening music. We would recommend this restaurant to other travelers for an interesting change of pace.

Enjoyed our lunch at Stash Cafe. My options for lunch were limited since I cannot eat gluten but I enjoyed the option that was offered (kielbasa with sauerkraut). My companion had pierogies and she said they were excellent. The restaurant was busy and crowded but the staff made sure guests were seated quickly.

I may not be polish food expert but the food was wonderful. Full of texture and rustic flavor. I had beets consommé, debutant platter that includes all the polish goodies, and plum cobbler. Best pierogi I ever had, potato pancake was lovely and beef croquet was tasty. Beets consommé was first ever to try and enjoyed the delicate flavor. It... More

Let me start with the headline: It was at Stash's that we ate the best meals in our four-day visit to Old Montreal. We had lunch one day, dinner two days later. Four meals between the two of us: stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, pierogi and placki (potato pancakes). All were wonderful. I especially liked the kielbasa; meaty and grilled to perfection.... More

It was the perfect stop for dinner on a cold and rainy day. The atmosphere was more pleasant than I expected - nice polish country feel with a little wow in lighting and poster art and a live piano player who was playing when we arrived through when we left two hours later. We had potato pancakes, herring, schnitzels, sole,... More

Stash Cafe is my favorite restaurant in Montreal. The food is simply wonderful. The ambiance is relaxed, the service is always efficient, but most of all, the food! It's excellent. If you like Polish food, a visit to Stash Cafe is well worth it.
