18 Outstanding Restaurant Options in Verdun

Take your pick between the flavours of Peru, Cambodia, Italy, and more

View as Map

When it comes to food, Verdun really has something for everyone. There’s French, Mexican, Korean, and Cambodian — and that’s just to name a few. These wide-ranging offerings are heavily concentrated along Wellington Street, which continues to see new additions, though a couple of others are on nearby Verdun and Lasalle.

This map sticks strictly to Verdun's official boundaries: highway 15 to the north, just south of the Douglas Hospital on the other end, the Canal de l'Aqueduc on the west, and the river on the east. Nuns' Island (or Île des Soeurs) also forms part of Verdun, and was considered, but no eateries from that area made it to the map.

1. Bagel St-Lo

Copy Link
5411 Rue de Verdun, Verdun
QC H4H 1K6, Canada
(514) 507-8430
Visit Website

While noses are generally turned northward to Mile End for Montreal bagels, it’s easy to forget there are choice Ashkenazi breads found elsewhere. Run by Isa Lora Messier and Émilie Sirois, this original location has had several successful years of good coffee and sandwiches, in addition to scrumptious brunches.

2. Pierrette Patates

Copy Link
3900 rue de verdun, Verdun
QC H4G, Canada
(514) 766-2138
Visit Website

Pierrette is one of Verdun's go-to Québécois greasy spoons, known for its poutine, but it's worth considering other Quebec favourites like the Michigan (hot dog with a meaty sauce), or even just a classic burger or sub.

3. Beba

Copy Link
3900 Rue Éthel, Verdun
QC H4G 1S4, Canada
(514) 750-7087
Visit Website

Inspired by the Spanish and Italian cultures that settled in Argentina, Beba dances across all kinds of spices and cuisines for a menu that’s anything but ordinary. The small, neighbourhood restaurant is helmed by Liverpool House alumnus Ari Schor and his brother Pablo. Expect creative seafood dishes, seasonal veggies, and a strong wine list that rivals some of the best wine bars in the city.

4. Restaurant El Sabor de México

Copy Link
5013 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1Y1, Canada
(514) 362-8888
Visit Website

A reliable spot for Mexican fare in the neighbourhood. Try the enchiladas (perfectly drenched in salsa verde or roja) or their new carnitas sandwich, boosted with slaw, pickles, and salsa.

5. Pavillon Snack Bar

Copy Link
5200 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4H 1M9, Canada
(514) 766-7305

Though the newest addition to this list, Pavillon Snack Bar fits right in, with excellent sandwiches, silky smooth coffee, and some highly sought-after banana bread. Currently in the process of setting up a terrasse for the summer.

6. Well

Copy Link
4567 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1W8, Canada
(514) 494-4477
Visit Website

This brunch and lunch spot from Peter Simard and Paule Vezina is a sharp contrast to some of its BYOB and greasy spoon neighbours both in menu and discretion. It quietly opened in 2017 and has kept a low-profile since despite its positive reception: Who wouldn’t want to start their day with maple bacon-topped ricotta pancakes or a braised beef grilled cheese?

7. Villa Wellington

Copy Link
4701 rue Wellington, Montreal
QC H4G 1X2, Canada
(514) 768-0102
Visit Website

Peruvian specialties abound at this corner restaurant, from papas rellenos (fried stuffed potatoes) to anticuchos and grilled chicken. Skip the part of the menu with burgers and other non-Peruvian options.

8. Les Délices de l'Île Maurice

Copy Link
272 Hickson, Verdun
QC H4G 2J6, Canada
(514) 768-6023
Visit Website

One of very few restaurants in Montreal serving food from the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius, the food at Les Délices reflects the nation’s geography: near Africa, colonized by Europeans, and settled by immigrants from India and east Asia. Creole sauces, seafood, and a dhal-like soup all figure prominently — and are reasonably priced.

9. Blackstrap BBQ

Copy Link
4436 rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1W6, Canada
(514) 507-6772
Visit Website

Dylan Kier is Montreal's pre-eminent purveyor of all manner of rubbed and smoked meats. His Verdun barbecue hub is a casual affair with meaty plates, sandwiches, and chili, and a famous Burnt Ends poutine topped with crispy brisket bits.

10. Palco

Copy Link
4019 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1V6, Canada
(514) 303-1345
Visit Website

The neighbourhood’s premier cocktail bar Palco launched a new takeout menu this spring, including picnic platters (cheese and charcuterie), oysters, a club sandwich with smoked pancetta and whiskey mayonnaise, and a dried garlic flower focaccia with a side of beet pesto that’s particularly tempting. Not veering too far from its bar roots, it offers up an enviable selection of craft beers and private import wines.

11. BOSSA Prêt-à-manger

Copy Link
4354 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1W4, Canada
(438) 387-1211
Visit Website

If you could stop at just one spot to stock up on provisions before a picnic, this should almost certainly be it. The hard part will be deciding which striking sandwich to order: chicken parm lathered in tomato sauce and basil oil, rapini and sausage, or a new hoagie, packed with salami, capocollo, mortadella, prosciutto, cheese, pickled eggplants, and hot peppers. Whatever you decide on, you’ll be fine — just don’t forget the ricotta cannoli for a proper finale.

12. Sweet Lee's Boulangerie Rustique

Copy Link
4150 Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1V7, Canada
(514) 846-9318
Visit Website

From cookies to pie, Verdun's top bakehouse draws crowds for its perfectly executed sweets, but more savoury options like a croque monsieur are not to be sneezed at.

13. Aka Fuji

Copy Link
3872 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC, Canada
(514) 223-4262
Visit Website

One of the city's few Japanese-owned sushi restaurants, Aka-Fuji is a nice nook with even nicer rolls — split between Japanese and Americanized takes.

14. Rita

Copy Link
3681 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1V1, Canada
(514) 419-1942
Visit Website

Verdun has handfuls of late-night pizza joints, but Rita is one of the first in the neighbourhood to serve up Neapolitan-style pies. Here, guests can expect classic pies like a one topped with fior di latte with olives, basil, and pecorino; and delicious twists, including the Enzo 97, a mushroom-based pie topped with mushroom pâte, marinated oyster mushrooms and provolone. Not in the mood for pizza? Rita also boasts a seasonal selection of handmade pastas.

15. Janine Café-Brunch

Copy Link
3900 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1V3, Canada
(514) 543-5372
Visit Website

Sister to pivotal Rosemont brunch spot Régine, Janine borrows some cues, but adds its own flare with a plate of smoked mackerel and latkes, and chicken and waffles served with harissa yogurt and mango jam.

16. Les Street Monkeys

Copy Link
3625 Rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1T9, Canada
(514) 768-1818
Visit Website

The hype surrounding Tota Oung’s Cambodian restaurant has never quite died down in Montreal — let alone Verdun. Among many delectable items on a somewhat-shifting menu, the stuffed chicken wings, fried papaya salad, and wasabi shrimp ceviche all come highly recommended.

17. Wellington

Copy Link
3629 rue Wellington, Verdun
QC H4G 1T9, Canada
(514) 419-1646
Visit Website

Verdun mightn't be as full of French bring-your-own-wine bistros as, say, Hochelaga, and maybe that’s because Wellington offers such tough competition. With tartares, pâtes, and boudin, it's pretty darn French — something to be expected given that two of the owners also run O'Thym and Les Canailles.

18. Comon

3969 Boulevard LaSalle, Verdun
QC H4G 2A1, Canada
(514) 543-3969

The headliner at this popular neighbourhood spot is the fried chicken, whatever way you like it: plain, sweet and spicy, just spicy, draped in a soy-garlic sauce, or loaded with green onions. It also dishes up a lovely selection of standard Korean dishes.
