Saint-Henri: Our take-out suggestions

Saint-Henri pour emporter

The Saint-Henri neighbourhood is an emblematic place within the city of Montreal. Both before and after its annexation to the city in 1905, the history of Saint-Henri illustrates the evolution of the island’s industrial districts. Bordered by the Lachine Canal and adjacent to the Atwater Market, it is a lovely place to stroll and enjoy the parks and beautiful architecture. Speaking of which, one thinks in particular of the fire station located at Place Saint-Henri or of the well-known historic house that is mentioned in the novel Bonheur d’Occasion by Gabrielle Roy. While walking in the neighbourhood you’ll be sure to build an appetite, and that’s a great thing because Saint-Henri is full of excellent places to order delicious take-out.

Like its neighbours in the South-West, Griffintown and Little Burgundy, the diversity of the dining scene in Saint-Henri will appeal to all palates, and we’re happy to share this list of places open for take-out.

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.
