Pointe-Saint-Charles: our suggestions for take-out

Pointe-Saint-Charles has long been one of Montreal’s unloved neighbourhoods, one that was more often than not forgotten. Its industrial past, which is still felt today, didn’t help in making it a very attractive place to be. It was here that many French-speaking workers and Irish immigrants once settled, and the neighbourhood was far from rich.

Like many other parts of Montreal, Pointe-Sainte-Charles has, for better or for worse, undergone rapid gentrification since the early 2000s. Slowly but surely, the face of the neighbourhood is changing. More and more businesses are choosing to set up shop in this area of the city, which is only growing in popularity. Although the gastronomic offering is not yet at its peak, new addresses are popping up all the time.

While the list of gourmet addresses is not as extensive as those in adjacent neighbourhoods, it is not to be underestimated. Some of our favourite restaurants are located here, places not to be missed when you are passing through or if you live in the neighbourhood and are feeling peckish.

For other suggestions, check out 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 for take-out in Pointe-Saint-Charles.

Café Cantina

Comfort food, Mexican cuisine – $, $$. CafĂ© Cantina is one of Pointe-Saint-Charles’ favourite addresses for Mexican cuisine, and has been since it opened in 2010. The first restaurant to introduce California-style Mexican cuisine to the neighbourhood, CafĂ© Cantina has quickly become a landmark for lunch and dinner in the community.

Fast food, comfort food – $$ Rubie’s, the new Miel project in Pointe-Saint-Charles, is a far cry from the traditional fried chicken that is increasingly appearing on menus across the city. More accessible and affordable for families than its big brother’s offerings, the chicken at Rubie’s is juicy and succulent; a very gourmet stop in the South West borough.

Lecavalier Petrone

Chocolate and pastry shop – $$$ Lecavalier Petrone is the project of two young women with a talent for cooking, pastry and especially chocolate: ChloĂ© Migneault-Lecavalier and LoĂŻse Desjardins-Petrone. Together, they create high-end chocolates that are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious to eat – one of the best chocolate shops in town.
