Fodor's Expert Review Birks Café par Europea

$$$ Downtown and the Golden Square Mile French

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Because where else could you possibly treat yourself to afternoon tea while sitting in a 150-year-old diamond store? A visit to Birks Café is not for the faint of heart: indulgent diners will have to be strong and fight the urge to, peruse diamonds as they make their way through the store and up to the restaurant, and eat every single appetizing item on the menu as a reward. Of course, we already know resistance is futile when it comes to foie gras served on brioche bread or Devonshire cream and scones (the best in the city). And while it does openly cater to Ladies with a capital L, Birks Café par Europea is the ideal setting for a classy yet surprisingly affordable date in downtown Montréal.
