We arrived and waited in line, which surprisingly went fairly fast, once seated ordered and served fairly quickly. The food was good, being a fan of southern smoked meats, this is deff different, more of a corned beef, lots of meat, but not enough bread for the sandwich. The fries and cherry coke were good. Basically, for a tourist, a... More

They offer about 6 different things so its tricky for the picky eaters. You sit with strangers and get food pretty quickly so the line turnover is fast. Sandwiches are almost too large and I would have preferred to share the small smoked meat plate which comes with bread and mustard and make my own. Add coleslaw and pickles for... More

Second time to Schwarz's. The smoked meat is so nice. Choice of lean or medium. I had lean and loved the thickness of the cut, the amount of meat and flavour is great. The restaurant could remain authentic style but still be better cleaned in my opinion. The first time we went to the takeout dude and stroud side because... More

Tried the smoked meat sandwich and fries. Honestly I didn't need the fries, for one person the sandwich was plenty. If you're ordering to takeout, make sure you pick up a tissue, your hands will get a bit oily. Nice taste of Montreal.

This place is always on my list of places I have to visit when I'm in Montreal. It seems that there is always a line up, but the restaurant is open very late so there is always the option to go when it is less crowded. You can also order take out and go to a nearby park to enjoy... More

I had to go because a Canadian friend said it's one of her favorite places. It was fun sitting at the counter and watching just how fast they can crank out the dishes. Not surprising since they really only serve their specialities - like the smoked meat entree or sandwich. I chose the sandwich which comes with a huge serving... More

Wow, I don't think a trip to Montreal is complete without a Montreal smoked meat sandwich. This is THE place to go. We had the biggest and best sandwich we've had in a long time. It was all I could do to finish my sandwich. There must be 1/2 pound of meat or more in one of their sandwiches. Well... More

You must stop in if you are in Montreal. It's a very small Deli with lines outside at lunchtime. Super smoked meat. It's been on the famous Saint Laurent Street forever an d the excellent quality never changes.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
