Ahuntsic: Our take-out suggestions

Ahuntsic pour emporter

Located in the north of the island of Montreal, Ahuntsic is a particularly charming part of the city. In this mostly residential neighbourhood, there are several parks where you can enjoy the beautiful weather all year long. The fact that Ahuntsic borders on the water makes it all the more appealing, since some of these green spaces overlook the Rivière des Prairies. One thing we really appreciate about the neighbourhood is how family-friendly it is, which makes it an especially convivial place to live, visit, and explore. Ahuntsic’s main commercial street, Fleury, offers great gourmet addresses, many of which offering take-out.

Whether you’re looking for a coffee, a pastry, a good treat or a more substantial meal with a bottle of wine, there is something for everyone. This is a great time to discover the flavours of your neighbourhood since our activities have been limited. Here is our list of gourmet addresses when looking for a meal to go in Ahuntsic.

For other suggestions, consult the general list of open restaurants that offer a take-out option. If you’re craving a particular dish (burger, dumplings, sushi, pizza…), we recommend consulting our other lists of good take-out places, specifically designed to give you ideas in the particular context of the pandemic. It’s always great to discover your neighbourhood and the best it has to offer.
