When in Montreal you gotta get a smoked meat sandwich. (Salty smokey beef sliced thin on rye bread with a swabbing of sharp yellow mustard...) And in Montreal, Schwartz’s is the place to do it. That being said, it cannot beat a typical corned beef...More

When in Montréal,, you have to try Schwartz's smoked meat! the best I have tried period! Even in Dalas, Texas a shop owner said his smoked meat was better. It was really good, but not as good!

Nope. I think it's cash only. They might take debit.
