We haven't been to Falafel St. Jacques in quite a while and I’m happy to report that nothing has changed, maybe even better. We arrived at about 11:30 am, just before their lunchtime rush. Even with Covid around there are still take-out lines. How could...we resist not ordering our favourite, their Falafel platter! It is excellent!! We were happy to see Salah and Shanni are still part of the original staff. Their platter comes with delicious warm pita, 4 very warm Falafel balls and a choice of 3 salads. I always order an extra ball and an extra pita. There is Ia small surcharge. I also ordered two strawberry Sufganiyot (Israeli donuts). Delicious, they were still warm. A real treat if you have never tasted one. Their display of salads is amazing! Everything is fresh and the choices are hard to pick. Did I mention that they also sell sweet treats, cakes, cookies, donuts and much more. Everything is super fresh and delicious. I also just found out that you can park across the street at the LA Belle Province but not for too long. Enjoy!! P.S. There is another location in the works on Decarie near Vezina. It should open in a few months. Look for it.More

We were in the mood for some quality Mediterranean Cuisine and this place hit the spot. They now have a very small terrace where there parking lot once was as well as a few spots on their balcony. The service was super fast. I ordered...their Hummus Falafel plate ($12.99) which by the way will definitely feed two. I have enclosed a pic. It comes with four falafels but I asked for an extra ball, which they gave me no charge. The falafel balls were nestled on a great homemade Hummus and you get an authentic homemade pita for dipping. You also get to pick 3 Mediterranean salads from a large assortment being offered. I chose their potato salad, pickled beets and Brussel sprouts. You also get 3 salads that are included on the plate. They also have a very large assortment of pastries, cookies and danish. If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place to be. Enjoy!!More

Was a little dissapointed, they didnt have any of the sides in store that were on the online menu, got the shish taouk (mushrooms) was good but would have been better hot. Their pitas are to die for so make urself a favour and get...an extra oneMore

My story as a health provider - My love story with Felafel St. Jacques, dates back to when they first opened. I was enchanted- it brought me back to Jerusalem's- Melach Hafelafel - the Eatery hotspot where everything is super fresh and it was as...fun to watch the theatrics of the assembling of the falafel- as the buzz of activity. The National celebrated and highlighted why I loooooved this very special place- because people of diverse backgrounds like the owner and his manager , Israeli and the latter Palestinian work together like brothers to create all this delishness. If the world would only learn these lessons. So often after stopping off later at night after taking care of family tasks- I knew , I could enjoy a warm welcome and a yummy vegetarian feast. At the onset of the Pandemic, Ronni , the owner was donating and delivering free meals to frontline health care workers in hospitals who were working with Covid- 19 patients and could use this support as they battled exhaustion from long hours.. When they found out I was quarantined they texted and phoned me regularly to see if I needed anything that they could deliver. We are so blessed to have these angels as a shining example serving our community.More

The guys at Falafel St. Jacques are super friendly despite their fast pace of putting together fantastic, tasty, yet simple dishes. We had the falafel plate, shwarma plate, 2 falafel pitas and a plate of fries (crispy potato wedges). FSJ is the closest to middle...eastern street food that I have found in frequent travels around North America. Very fresh. Tasty. Friendly staff. A bit out of the way but it is worth it. I'm putting FSJ on my list of places to come back to when in Montreal again.More
