Where to Eat Right in Rosemont

Fried chicken, Tunisian briks, and more

Sandwiches from Sandwicherie Sue

Rosemont is a veritable mixed bag for eating — it doesn’t have a clear personality, like the international range of Côte-des-Neiges, or a dominant trait like Hochelaga’s plethora of French bistros.

Instead, it feels like a meeting place for a host of different culinary vibes of the neighbourhoods surrounding it. Régine’s enormously popular brunches feel like they could have teleported from the Plateau, restaurant Awkwaba somehow manages to pull off an effortless combo of Greek and African cuisine, and Portugese spot Casa Vinho gets all the classics right.

Many of Rosemont’s eateries are clustered on Beaubien Street, especially on the west side — eastern Rosemont is pretty darn residential. There are a few more in commercial pockets on Masson, and to a lesser extent, St-Zotique.

Looking for places to eat west of Papineau? A separate guide to La Petite-Patrie covers those.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Veganation

Copy Link
6701 Avenue Papineau, Montréal
QC H2G 2X4, Canada
(438) 938-2163
Visit Website

This cafe-meets-grocery-store-meets-caterer sticks to a simple menu of vegan (and gluten free-friendly) soups, bowls, sandwiches and salads. Veganation does vegan food for people who already love vegan food; expect fresh, colourful ingredients, and all the veggies and grains you can pack into one dish. 

2. La Rose des Sables

Copy Link
1815 Rue Beaubien E, Montréal
QC H2G 1L7, Canada
(514) 593-6655
Visit Website

Known for its live music and weekend belly dancing performances, this Tunisian spot delivers rich Mediterranean flavours in a homey, warm space. Bring a bottle of your own wine to enjoy with a tagine or one of the restaurant’s signature briks (filo pastry pockets stuffed with meats, veggies, cheeses and eggs.)  

3. Régine

Copy Link
1840 Rue Beaubien E, Montréal
QC H2G 1L6, Canada
(514) 903-0676
Visit Website

Wildly popular Régine draws line-ups for its brunch most weekends, but here's a tip — they do it on weekdays, too. A classic approach with creative touches makes it shine — the corn waffle with confied duck and yogurt tartar or the coconut milk oatmeal are just a few examples. Régine also has plenty of vegetarian options — like scrambled tofu — and can make the majority of dishes lactose- or gluten-free upon request.

4. La Boulette

Copy Link
2223 Beaubien Est, Montreal
QC H2G 1M8, Canada
(514) 903-5599
Visit Website

With burgers and tartares done with a focus on fresh and local ingredients (including Quebec lambbuns from top bakery Arhoma) La Boulette got into the upscale comfort food game (and did it well) a few years before it dominated much of the city's culinary scene. It also has possibly the swankiest wine for any burger spot in town, with a list made up of private imports.

5. De Froment et de Sève

Copy Link
2355 Beaubien Est, Montreal
QC H2G 1N3, Canada
(514) 722-4301
Visit Website

The kingpin of Rosemont bakeries, De Froment does it all: from bread and viennoiseries, and countless flaky, buttery pastries. For more substantial meals, an excellent sandwich selection and small bistro menu awaits.

6. Sandwicherie Sue

2660 rue Beaubien E, Montreal

It's not a regular banh mi, it's a cool banh mi: Susan Lo beefs up the Vietnamese classic with marinades, aioli, and entirely novel concoctions like her Chinese eggplant or shiitake mushroom sandwiches. Plenty of vegetarian options here, too.

7. Mon Petit Poulet

Copy Link
2343 Boulevard Rosemont, Montréal
QC H2G 1T8, Canada
(514) 543-4828
Visit Website

There’s no scarcity of good chicken in Montreal; but even in this rotisserie-mad city, Mon Petit Poulet manages to stand out. Beyond the classic roast and fried chicken and chicken burgers, nuggets, and hot sandwiches, Mon Petit Poulet also offers ribs, beef burgers, and an all-dressed kielbasa dog topped with apple relish, red cabbage and fried shallots. 

8. Akwaba

Copy Link
4541 Belanger E., Montreal
QC H1T 1B7, Canada
 (514) 507-1186
Visit Website

Bring your own wine and pull up a seat for two disparate cuisines that somehow work despite the apparent mismatching. Akwaba does dishes from all over Africa, alongside Greek food, and is surely the only place in town serving both mafe (peanut stew) and moussaka. Choukouya (spiced, braised meat) is one of the big specialties.

9. Casa Vinho

Copy Link
3750 rue Masson, Montreal
QC H1X 1S6, Canada
(514) 721-8885
Visit Website

A colourful neighbourhood Portuguese restaurant doing classic Portuguese flavours: grilled octopus (and other seafood), pork fillet in porto sauce, and, of course, rotisserie chicken.

10. Une Nuit à Bangkok

Copy Link
5076 de Bellechasse, Montreal
QC H1T 2A2, Canada
(514) 473-1814
Visit Website

Could the city's best Thai restaurant be buried deep in Rosemont? The menu at One Night In Bangkok may not be as encyclopedic as some Thai eateries, instead focusing on a tight selection of soup, noodle, and curry classics.

11. Hoogan et Beaufort

Copy Link
4095 Rue Molson, Montreal
QC H1Y 3L1, Canada
(514) 903-1233
Visit Website

Eater Award-winning chef Marc-André Jetté's first restaurant is a celebration of all things fresh and fire-cooked. A fire pit is key to the restaurant's perfectly Québécois and French approaches.
