This place has been around for a long time. Its Greek run and has great lunch deals. I love the smoke meat special. Lots of varied characters here and they have a small section for beers and slots.

Fresh custom made deli submarine style sandwiches on fresh baked bread...served up quickly...(probably in between metro trains)...simple, good value fare..with a great special sauce...for a quick grab and go, going to or coming from the Atwater Metro. The area has been recently renovated so it's well lit and clean..I garb one once a week.

This is not a CHAIN delicatessen.. This deli recently changed cook, and boy he has made delicious changes to the homemade soups they serve, the Friday pea soup is as always very good, and during the week they serve this vegetable soup that reminds you of what your granny or mom would serve, has cabbage and other vegetables in it...

Ok, first off this is a deli, so the interior décor is not chrome and brass, so if that's what your looking for, go somewhere else.. St Catherine Street has "deli" restaurants that charge way more, have lots of staff to handle your order but that chrome and brass comes at a price: One waiter who comes to see if... More

G.A. is tucked away in the basement of Alexis Nihon Plaza - you have to know it's there. The waitresses have mostly been there forever - they know all their regulars' names, and they're professionals. The food is pretty diverse - they have amazing brochettes, homemade pizzas, smoked meat, omelettes, super homemade soups, and daily specials that'll bring you right... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
