The southwestern neighbourhood of Saint-Henri continues to see a culinary explosion. Most of the neighbourhood’s options are peppered on the main strip of Notre-Dame West, close to Place Saint-Henri metro station, but a walk a little farther west can yield equally delicious finds (like Bernice).

And that’s to say nothing of the options for dessert, which with Rustique, Léché, and Dalla Rosse are plenty in the area.
