Mile End: Our take-out suggestions

Mile End : nos suggestions pour emporter

Although adjacent to the Plateau Mont-Royal, Mile End has a very distinct personality; it is a great neighbourhood to live for all generations. It is also known as one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world, a place where many artists grew up or began their careers. Creativity is at the forefront of this rather eclectic neighbourhood.

Beyond the creativity and sense of community that sets the neighbourhood apart, its gourmet addresses often attract a swarm of tourists every year who love to stroll along St. Viateur and Fairmount streets to discover the best of Mile End. Although the neighbourhood is very small, it has carved out a well-deserved place for itself in the Montreal dining scene.

Mile End restaurants offer plenty of varied take-out options, so you can discover the hidden treasures of the borough while we wait patiently for the dining rooms to reopen. It goes without saying that each of these addresses contributes in its own way to the reputation of the Mile End being one of the most gourmet neighbourhoods in town. 

For other suggestions, consult the general list of open restaurants that offer a take-out menu. 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.

Don’t hesitate to send us your suggestions if you have any other ideas for good places to go in Mile End.
