A dying genre this most unique of Montreal's delis. If you still eat meat the sandwiches are a must, especially on a summer's day.
It has become a bit touristy and the meat is not as juicy as once it was but still it evokes a certain era and should not be missed even if it means standing in line for 10 minutes.

Renowned as one of the most popular, and staple figures of Quebec. The smoked meat sandwich, in one of it's greatest forms! Don't bother with the decore, you're in for a treat!

Last time I have been in Schwartz was almost 10 years ago. RACH time I wae around , I was discouraged by the big tourist mop waiting for hours to get a place. This late evening was quite and we gave a try with friends. To dum it up quite
Turn off. It was late and dirty , crumbs on and under the table. Slowwww service and unpleasant. This place basically serves smoked meat sandwaches and fries.
I have eaten better smoked meat sandwaches in Montreal and wonder why is this placea tourist attraction. It is a tourist fluke.

We had the smoke meat, pickle, and a waiter with a snarky attitude. The meat was good, but not as good as any Jewish deli in NY, Detroit or Chicago. We arrived about 1:30 and had no wait, but the line was out the door when we left about 2:15. The rye bread was too thin and limp to hold up the meat. Mustard was already slathered on the bread. One poor woman at a nearby table asked for mayo and the waiter was aghast and said they wouldn’t allow it in the place.
So I’ve now been to Schwartz’s and don’t ever need to go again.
