Great eats near Montreal’s De L’Église metro station

In recent years, Wellington Street has emerged to become one of the main arteries of the city of Montreal. Very popular with South-West residents, the area’s many unique, gourmet restaurants also attract Montrealers from around the island. Here are some great places for those looking for a table within 10 minutes’ walk of the metro station De L'Église. [Image credit: Victor Kapas]

Chez Boss & Fils

3610, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1T6

I've only sat down at this restaurant once, but I remember it like it was yesterday! The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting, with the aromas of good comfort food emanating from the kitchen. While chef Dara and sous-chef Jeremy are busy in the back, “BOSS” and “son” manage the floor and ensure the well-being of customers. And all do a great job! I ate the most delicious pork chop ever (tuna tataki is also a must at this spot) and I drank a little glass of perfectly paired, privately imported wine. Now it’s your turn to spoil yourself.

Boulangerie Rustique Sweet Lee's

4150, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V7

One of the now famous CULT MTL winners, Sweet Lee’s ranks second among the best bakeries and pastry shops in Montreal, just behind Guillaume and ahead of Hof Kelsten, Mamie Clafoutis and Première Moisson. And that’s saying something! You’ll find delicious gourmet sandwiches, pizza, scones, desserts and healthy snacks, plus a nice coffee or an iced tea. Dine in (there is even a small terrace) or take out.

Blackstrap BBQ

4436, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1W5

Meat lovers, this is your can’t-miss spot in the South-West. Pulled pork, brisket, turkey, ribs, and chicken wings, not to mention brisket poutine and chili! In short, a real barbecue experience from the southern United States, in the heart of Verdun!

Bar Palco

4019, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V6

The Palco is much more than a neighbourhood bar. This is a place that pushes the cultural talent in the region to the fore, thanks to a program of socio-cultural events. It’s also a place to go for a drink with friends, over barbecue chicken nachos and whiskey, shepherd’s pie with braised beef, a mini burger trio, beet carpaccio, or even a sweet potato poutine with roasted parsnips. A+ for the atmosphere... and the terrace in the summer!

Station W

3852, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V2

By definition, a station is “a place where we stop on our way for a short or medium stop, where we take a break.” And W is for Wellington. So Station W is a small cafe on rue Wellington where you can stop for a snack (we love the grilled-cheese) and drink a cup of coffee to continue the day on the right foot. Everything is local and fresh, and breakfast is served every morning from 7 am.

Restaurant Rita

3681 Rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V1

From the same team that runs Wellington comes Balconville, a neighbourhood pub offering gourmet pub-style fare, with beer, cocktails, wine and... a beautiful terrace! We love the 1855 Black Angus steak burger with dark beer onion compote, aged cheddar and home-smoked bacon. Mmmmmm!

Comptoir 21 Fish & Chips

4844, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1X4

You go to Comptoir 21 for one sole dish: the Fish & Chips. The restaurant has a very pleasant little retro touch and the fish is always fresh and perfectly cooked. It goes with the large home fries and great coleslaw. In short, a safe and delicious bet!

A unique and emerging neighbourhood, Saint-Henri is attracting more and more young adults settle there, and a host of local shops have emerged to serve these new occupants.

Located in the heart of Little Italy, the Jean-Talon Metro Station is sort of a central point of the city. Its surroundings are multicultural... and its restaurants, too! Here’s a list of locations for those looking for a good bite less than a 10-minute walk from the station or the Market.[Image credit:© ferenz]
Berri-UQAM is the busiest station of the entire metro network, with some 13 million journeys recorded in 2014. It serves the popular Latin Quarter and St-Denis, de Maisonneuve and Ontario East streets. In short, this station is something of a central point of the city. So here are a few good places for those looking for a table within 10 minutes' walk from the metro station.[Image credit: SDC du Quartier Latin]
