The smoked meat sandwiches were so delicious that it was worth the drive from Toronto. The atmosphere was so cozy, it seemed as if we were all part of a large family having lunch together. The service was fast and the sandwiches very delicious

My boyfriend and I went to Schwartz's for lunch at around 12:30pm. There were approximately 8 people ahead of us in the line waiting for a table. You have to line up outside the restaurant, and it was very cold. It took about 20-30 mins for us to get inside. The Service was very friendly and fast. The Montreal smoked... More

At first I thought... That's a really small sandwich... Then after eating it I fell in love. Good thing I came when there was a very short line because a couple minutes passed and a good 20 people came to lineup. Next time I come, I'll definitely try more.. Loved it. The only "bad" thing about it is the smoked... More

You must make a stop here, they have the best smoked meat sandwich in the world! Personally I preferred the lean meat as it didn't have as much fat in it, but normally the fat adds a ton of flavor and texture.

Over the years the quality of the food has gone down while prices go up. Only accepts cash but you can spend the 3$ to withdraw from the ATM in the establishment. Overpriced but because of the reputation gets away with it

The best smoked meat in Montreal. It's simple and filling. The place has nice ambiance and the staff are friendly. Tip: they only take cash

Montreal's premiere landmark and an automatic MUST TRY for any traveller that's never had smoked meat or has never been to Montreal and is here for the first time. Must try eatery. It's worth the wait you have to wait for outside

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
