The Plateau Mont-Royal: our suggestions for take-out

As the creative hub of Montreal, the Plateau Mont-Royal has a lot to offer. The neighbourhood is known around the world for its street art and distinctive architecture. It is a corner of the island of Montreal that attracts foreigners as much as Montrealers themselves.

From Parc Lafontaine to Parc Jeanne-Mance, Le Plateau, also known as le Petit-Paris, is a friendly place where gathering with friends is a favourite pastime, at least when it was or will be a possibility. It is crossed by major commercial arteries, such as Saint-Laurent Boulevard, Saint-Denis Street and, of course, Mount Royal Avenue; the choice of restaurants is so great that one sometimes doesn’t know where to turn.

While we wait for the dining rooms to reopen, the Plateau offers a variety of options for those who want take-out and support their favourite restaurants at the same time. Here are some suggestions for you.

Don’t hesitate to send us your suggestions if you have other good take-out ideas in the Plateau Mont-Royal.


Korean cuisine – $$ The chef reproduces the family recipes of his partner (who is also his wife) with a modern twist. Everything is made by hand. We love the kimchi, the bibimbap and the dumplings (galbe mande). Interesting options for both carnivores and vegetarians.

Chez José

Neighbourhood Restaurant – $ We’re getting hooked on Jose’s sandwiches. The most popular is without a doubt the Chicken Churrasco. We would travel for miles on our knees to taste their seafood soup. The menu is unpretentious and you can find local products at affordable prices.
Food at Café Chez Téta

Café chez Téta

Lebanese cuisine – $ While CafĂ© Chez Teta opened in the midst of the pandemic, the cafe is already carving out a place for itself in the hearts of Plateau residents. Good third wave coffee with traditional Lebanese dishes. A version of the menu is available for take-out. The star: the flatbread, manouchĂ©, with a choice of 6 toppings.

Khyber Pass

Afghan cuisine – $ While waiting to return to one of Montreal’s most beautiful terraces, we enjoy their authentic flavours at home. Lamb steals the show at Khyber Pass: three variations of lamb shank are offered, seasoned with fragrant Afghan spices. You can also taste the Afghan dumplings stuffed with leeks or beef. A real treat!

Les Chocolats de Chloé

Chocolaterie – $$ Chocolates made on site with finesse. You can choose from about thirty chocolates with original flavours. We love the classics revisited by ChloĂ©, such as chocolate covered marshmallows, chocolate sponge taffy, ChloĂ©’s version of “turtles” and candied orange peels dipped in chocolate. In a nutshell, there’s something for everyone.
