Cheap Eats in Montreal

Jump to last reply

Just figured I would solicit the opinions of Fodorites on your favorite places (preferably non-chain) for lunches and dinners under $15 in Montreal.

I enjoy most all kinds of food except Indian (the heat is usually too much for me, although I like the flavors - Thai can be tough as well, but it seems easier to find mild Thai dishes). Vegetarian is OK for a meal or two, but not the whole time. "Breakfast for lunch/dinner" is good as well - no need to recommend a breakfast place for breakfast, though, as I have that covered.

I don't drink alcohol or coffee at all and try to avoid sodas (although I have read that a black cherry soda is "traditional" when having smoked meat), so that gives a little more "bang" for the target price of the meal. Unless I will need to buy bottled water at mealtimes, of course.

If a thread like this has been posted recently, I missed it. I have seen the postings on vegetarian places and have been reading guidebooks and websites for suggestions (including the markets). But I figured it couldn't hurt to ask here, especially as there are Montrealers who post frequently.

Area of the city is not a big concern, as I will be trying to see the main sights and will have a car. But FWIW I will be staying in the area my city map calls Notre-Dame-de-Grace, across the A-15 from Westmount.
