This is our go to Montreal deli. Their smoked meat is some of, if not, the best we’ve ever had. I like the fact that they serve sliced beef tongue which is fairly hard to find these days. Their French fries are outstanding. This time we tried their potato knishes. They weren’t quite as delicate as mother used to make. We had their chopped beef liver. It was sweet and evocative of my childhood. They served a simple but delicious cucumber salad. Finally we had an order of their cheese blintzes. These were as good as or better than mother’s. Sorry, Mom. This place is worth a special trip.

No need to travel downtown for smoked meat when you can go to Snowdon Deli on Décarie Boulevard. This place has been a fixture in the neighbourhood and never disappoints . The smoked meat, matzo ball soup and world class French fries are my family’s favourites for all the generations .

I recently went for lunch with a friend to Snowdon Deli and it brought back memories. Their take out counter was busy, as usual, with people buying stuff to eat at home. Once we were seated and had a chance to look over their extensive menu, our waitress came by with water and to take our orders The service was quick and my mouth watering platter of old fashioned smoked meat ($18.00) arrived quickly. It was accompanied with bread, a large dill pickle and delicious fries. Wow, it brought back memories, since we hadn’t been there in quite a while. I also ordered a Cherry Coke ($2.50). My friend ordered the old fashioned smoked meat sandwich ($12.50) with fries ($4.50) and a coke ($2.50). Their menu is extensive with all sorts of goodies for breakfast or lunch. Enjoy 😊 Parking can still be a problem!

Rude! Rude ! And Rude Called in for take out, they put me on hold for 10 min and then told me they are not accepting any more orders for take out.The girl that answered the phone said she was told to say "no more orders" I asked to speak with the manager or owner but they did not want to come on the phone. So many years of ordering, almost every weekend take out and so much for respect to loyal customers.....this is the last time I dial their number. Rude!

We checked the website for their hours and it showed they were open until 7 PM. When we arrived at 5:30 we were told that the dining room is closed. No where on the website does it say only takeout after 3PM. This was very disappointing. When I inquired if we could order off the full menu I was told no, I asked what was available and was ignored. Needless to say this was not a good experience. I won't be back

Meat lovers paradise. Colleagues recommended the place for some authentic cusiene. Smoked meat sandwich looked so very huge when brought to the table. But the softness of the meat was so remarkable, it just melted as you eat.

We went there Saturday March 7 2020 to compare Schwartz to Snowdon. I ordered a fatty smoke meat, black cherry soda. My wife ordered the Smoke meat platter (Fatty) potatoe latkies and some other round pastry. (We shared) As per a youtube, snowden deli was suppose to be the best smoke meat in montreal. It had more taste than Schwartz and wasn't bad but it is not the best. The best we have ever had around here is smoke meat pete. that you need to try.

Since I was in the neighbourhood, decided to try this renown deli. Picked up two medium fat - old fashion sandwiches and half-sour pickles. Wow the meat was well brined and had the right amount of spices / salt / sugar ratio. Meat was sweet and tender. Service at the take-out counter was kind and efficient. Will be my new spot when I need a smoked meat fix.

Go! And go again! The smoked meat sandwich (on rye with mustard) is an absolute deli dream. Get it medium cut, not lean, if you want the best taste. A side of cole slaw (made with no mayonnaise) is a perfect side order. Four of us got smoked meat sandwiches and we all gave it a 10 out of 10. Atmosphere? Like a 77 year old deli…. Perfect!

I am so disappointed to find out that Snowdon Deli uses powdered chicken soup. I just recently had a heart attack and that soup is so full of sodium and other chemicals. I called regarding this because I have never had powdered chicken soup from a Deli and the owner told me it’s always been like that and all deli’s do that which is definitely not true. They use the powder and charge a fortune for something that is not even healthy. Shame on them. Buyer beware!

This deli is the greatest. I had their sandwich with two kinds of meat: one half smoked meat, old fashioned, medium fat, the other half sliced tongue - something that isn’t offered in all delis. Both were wonderful. We had their cheese blintzes for dessert. Also wonderful. The service was pleasant and helpful. I think this is the best deli in Montreal.

Wanted to try a place where the locals get their smoked meat. I'm a benedict fiend so I wanted to try the smoked meat benny. I'm not sure how they make the hollandaise sauce but it seemed almost mayonnaisey which I wasn't crazy about, just different than I am used to. The smoked meat was pretty good and I tried knish for the first time. The knish are very filling and we ate the leftovers for snack later on in the day. The server was super nice and checked in regularly to make sure we were happy.

My wife and I went out of our way in our most recent trip to MTL to try this place based on recommendations. Got there early on a frigid Sunday and avoided the crowds. Totally worth it! Key points: classic Jewish deli, great smoked meat, approachable food, and the best bite of our trip. What we tried: latkes, knishes, strudel, smoked meat Benedicts. Absolutely recommend! We’ll be back with friends and family!

wanted to try smoked meat and read about this in NYT. Great atmosphere, lovely staff, food was amazing and the staff recommended what to eat. Thoroughly enjoyed smoked meat with mustard on rye with a side of pickles and my husband had roast turkey on wholewheat with tomato and lettuce - both were fabulous!
