Saint-Henri: Our take-out suggestions
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.
Pastry shop – $-$$ (Back on January 24). Bernice is a newly opened pastry shop in the neighbourhood. Here, Jami Liverman creates decadent cookies and cakes in honour of her grandmother, Bernice. A place that is overflowing with love.
Creamery – $$ Dalla Rose is a favourite spot for those who love a well-crafted sweet treat. The house offers a few different flavours of their exceptional ice creams each week, and their cookies (vessels for ice cream sandwiches) are very good as well.
Comfort food – $$ Bucky Roosters is a colourful fried chicken counter. Available in its simplest form or in a sandwich, the fried chicken is the star of the show. Enjoy it with their house coleslaw or a good mac and cheese. The restaurant also offers some original drinks.
Italian Cuisine – $$-$$$ One of our favorite places in town, Elena offers the best in Italian cuisine. Its long take-out menu contains several offerings of pizzas, pastas, salads and more. The desserts are excellent and the house also has an interesting alcohol list.
