Plateau & ‘The Main’ Food Tour


One-of-a-Kind Food Tasting – On our 2h30 tour of the famous Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood, we invite you to taste the best of the old and the new. Visit the restaurants that have become beloved Montreal institutions like Schwartz’s deli with its world-renown smoked meat and Du Rosaire’s delicious traditional Portuguese natas. We visit the new popular bars and restaurants that have turned into instant Plateau hot spots. We kick off the tour at the new and hippest bar in the Plateau called Bar Darling. Enjoy a tasty goat cheese salad! We explore this new generation of eateries with our first stop at Épicerie Hao that serves unique steamed buns inspired by small Tokyo counter restaurants. Next, the tour discusses the history behind Jewish food at Cafe Fletcher. We finish off the tour in the amazing community center named Santropol Roulant!  On a daily basis, they serve around 100 meals per day by bike to elders or people with disabilities. You’ll see all their installation and beautiful rooftop garden overlooking the Plateau! 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 on the right.
