One where the poutines are served piping hot; the steamies are fresh and crisp with coleslaw; and everything is just appropriately sticky. Montreal has a whole bunch of awesome spots like this, but a select few stand out from the bunch.

This Montreal institution needs no description, TBH. It's been around for 100 years, and for just as long, it's been serving up delicious, traditional poutines, steamies, and more, all for super cheap.


2. Greenspot

953 Boulevard Décarie

This Ville St. Laurent spot has been serving up pretty much some of the best steamies and poutines in the whole city for years; one visit here, and you won't question why it's the favourite spot for many, many Montrealers.


5. Chez Tousignant

6956 Rue Drolet

One of the newer options here, no list about casse-croutes is complete without mentioning Chez Tousignant. Pretty much everything is homemade, and their food has such an awesome, unique flavour, you'll be hooked after one bite.


6. Patate Rouge

755 Boul Crémazie E

This Ahuntsic spot has been around forever, and has been serving up seriously amazing food (their poutines are to die for, TBH) for just as long.


7. Nouveau Palais

281 Rue Bernard O

Straight-up, Nouveau Palais is actually amazing. Their burgers are what real life dreams are made of, and the fact that it's open late pretty much means whenever you're craving it, they've got you covered.


8. Chez Ma Tante

3180 Rue Fleury E

A small eatery in Montreal's St. Michel, this spot serves up three things: french fries, poutines, and steamies. But trust, friends, they make these things so well, you won't even need anything else in your life.


9. Paulo & Suzanne

5501 Boul Gouin O

This Ahuntsic poutinerie is open 24/7, making it a perfect choice literally whenever you're craving something awesome. Although their poutine is awesome, make sure to explore their menu - which includes all-day breakfast.


10. Ligne Rouge

414 Rue Jean-Talon E

Located right near Jean-Talon metro, Ligne Rouge serves up some of the tastiest dishes you'll ever try; including their super popular (and yummy!) souvlakis.


11. Casse Croute Normand

4826 Rue de Verdun

This Verdun spot is awesome. Cozy and unassuming, it's the perfect spot for a lowkey night out of pure foodie enjoyment. Protip: try their hamburgers. They're so, so good.
