Mile End Montreal Food Tour


WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE MILE END MONTREAL FOOD TOUR?

One-of-a-Kind Food Tasting — On our 3-hour guided tour of the Mile End neighbourhood, we visit six unique tasting locations. Each one ensures that you will enjoy fresh and exciting flavours. We sample a variety of food from the Mile End, including everything from decadent Québécois chocolates to fresh homemade tomato sauce. The food samples included are enough for a hearty and satisfying lunch. Our tasting locations range from an ambitious urban butcher, to the famous St.Viateur bagel, and even to a fully sustainable vegan eatery!  All food tastings are included in the ticket price. We even throw in a water bottle to keep you hydrated. For more details on the tasting locations, please see the column to the right.

Historic & Cultural Experience – As you take in the eclectic streets of the Mile End, you’ll get the chance to experience life as a native Montrealer, or should we say a native “Mile Ender.” Our knowledgeable tour guides highlight the fascinating and offbeat history of this rich cultural hub. Our tour presents how the Mile End became home to the most artists per capita in all of North America (seriously). We also discuss the historical and cultural significance of many landmarks found in the bustling sector. The Mile End has become the epitome of Montreal’s multicultural standard, and our tour touches upon the deep history of immigration and settlement embedded in these streets. We can guarantee it will be the most interesting stroll you’ve taken in a while! In addition to this, our enthusiastic local guides share their knowledge, recommendations, and personal anecdotes about how the Mile End became the intriguing neighbourhood it is today!

**Special Food Requests During the Winter Season — The Mile End Food Tour, while encompassing diverse cultures and resulting in a plentiful lunch, is not vegan- or gluten intolerant-friendly during the winter season. We offer reduced ticket prices for those requiring such dietary restrictions, as there is less quantity while maintaining overall delicious quality. We invite those who are gluten intolerant to join our Old Montreal Food Tour, which features a shop specializing in gluten-free foods.

  • → What is the difference between the evening and day tour in the Mile End?

    Both tours are amazing in their own way. We offer both tours to make it easier for guests to fit our food tour into their schedule. The Mile End Food Tour (daytime) is longer and takes guests into the historic Rialto Theatre, Lawrence butcher shop which features locally-raised meat, and a few other hidden gems. The Evening Mile End Tour invites guests to experience the neighbourhood’s urban evening culture when the streets come alive. This tour is shorter, but still incorporates all the delicious food stops that’ll leave you full and satisfied. We even throw in a craft beer sample to kick off your evening!
