Mile-Ex

Mile-ex – In a tiny space on Jeanne-Mance Street, you’ll find Mile-Ex. This small restaurant offers and original take on Quebecois cuisine. Here, chef-owner Gregory Paul charms his guests with his original dishes. His customers, epicureans of all kinds, almost always become regulars, since you feel as though you’re eating at a friend’s place when you dine here. The decor is simple and welcoming; a lot has been done with little means and it shows.

Dinette Triple Crown

Mile-ex – Here you’ll find southern cuisine in a 1920s atmosphere; we love the music and the vintage decor. Fried chicken and gravy, incredible mac and cheese, pulled pork or brisket sandwiches, salads, and potatoes prepared every which way are on the menu at Dinette. You can eat at the counter, in the adjacent dining room, or take it to go. You can even borrow a picnic basket with your meal if you feel like having the full picnic experience in the park just down the street!

Dépanneur le Pick-Up

Mile-ex – Le Dépanneur le Pick-Up is one of Montreal’s undisputed successes and one of our favourite addresses! Open for many years now, this unique place has won the hearts of many with its casual approach and high quality products. In addition to its lunch counter, the Dep is also just that – a small convenience store offering quality products. They serve delicious sandwiches, salads, as well as homemade desserts. The menu is simple, tasty, and affordable. You can take your order to go or enjoy it outside at one of their picnic tables.

Dispatch Café

Mile-ex – Before it was a charming café, it was the storage space for Dispatch Coffee’s espresso truck. The sunny garage in the Mile-Ex neighbourhood is now one of our favourite cafés in Montreal. Here, we enjoy impeccable coffee, responsibly sourced and roasted on site – literally in the same room! – in a clean and comfortable environment. They also have a nice selection of pastries, snacks, and light lunches – uncomplicated but well done. The natural light also adds to the charm of the establishment.

Le Diplomate

Mile-ex – Here, in a small and discreet space Chef Aaron Languille (formerly of Café Sardine and Orange Rouge) welcomes you in his restaurant-bar. Sitting at the bar puts you right in the middle of the action as it faces the kitchen, so you can have the full chef’s table experience. The place is rather relaxed; you can enjoy a few original small plates and drink good wine, all for a reasonable price. We like to come here for a drink and a little bite to eat; uncomplicated and always good. This address is unique in its kind.

Orchestrated by the trio of Alexandre Baldwin, Alexandre Wolosianski and Éric Dupuis (Bar Henrietta, Tavern Square Dominion, Balsam) as well as Simon Cantin (Manitoba). Located in Mile Ex, on Park Avenue, the space is ideal for a tipsy evening with friends or on your own! As for drinks, there is something for everyone and everything is very good. The house quenches the thirst of lovers of wine, beer, cocktails, cider and even bubbles. Photo Alison Slattery
