On chilly nights locals head to this casual Eastern European restaurant in the heart of Old Montréal for sustenance. From borscht and pierogi, to cabbage and sausage, Café Stash has all the hearty specialties of a Polish kitchen. Live piano music in the background is the perfect accompaniment for roasted wild boar or traditional Wiener schnitzel. The ambiance is cozy and dark with tables salvaged from an old convent; seating comes in the form of chapel pews. Anita Karski,
the current owner, was a waitress here for ten years and her experience and know-how make this place run seamlessly.
