Katherine Levac’s take-out suggestions

You probably know the comedian Katherine Levac, but if not, you should check her out! She recently gave birth to twins (!) and also has a show available here.

A few years ago, Katherine shared with us a few of her favourite addresses in the city. Today, she has shared five of her favourite addresses for take-out in the Southwest, where she lives.

“I’ve been living in Pointe St-Charles for a few months now, and it’s such a fun neighbourhood when you’re hungry.

With the restaurants closed, we resort to take-out, but the truth is that with two babies at home, I resort to take-out regardless of the situation. I used to order for fun, now I order to survive.

McKiernan:

I’ve always thought the place was cool, even more so since the taping of my show, GROSSE, which was held at their establishment.

My favourites: the homemade donuts, obviously, but also the tuna confit dish full of freshness, as well as the big roasted chicken with gravy, not at all filled with freshness. Yummy.

Elena:

My favourite pizza place in Montreal.

My favourites: The Kevin McCallister and the M. Funguy.

Bonus point for the wine take-out and the lemon pistachio cookies that I eat in the car before I get home because I can’t stop myself.

Mollo café and bakery:

There’s the cafe, which I love for their vegan grilled cheese, and now there’s the bakery that just opened next door.

Their pesto bread is my new obsession and I never say no to a lemon pie.

Café Bloom:

My go-to place for a latte with a lemon cranberry scone. I love the old wood floor and the fact that the double stroller fits in the door of the establishment.

For take-out I recommend the tofu burger and the merguez bowl.

Also, I want to mention that dogs are allowed when it’s a take-out order and that’s very nice.

They even have a mini grocery store with nice kimchi, pies, hot sauces, beers, and funky wine.

They also sell a delicious cherry cider from Revel Cider, made in Guelph, Ontario, and nothing usually happens in Guelph, so that’s fun.

Clarke Café:

I would have no problem with eating a Clarke sandwich every day for the rest of my life.

My go to is genoa salami, eggplant, and hot peppers.

I even ate it once when I was pregnant, even though you’re not supposed to eat cured meats. I pretended I made a mistake, but I made no mistake at all.”

Thank you, Katherine Levac, for your take-out suggestions in the South-West! Good luck with the babies!
