Us starving youth need options, and thankfully Montreal has plenty low priced but high quality food joints to fill our bellies.

Deli Sandwiches at Super Sandwich

Hidden in the basement of the Le Cartier complex is the deli-dep Super Sandwich. No sandwich is priced above $4 and all are served on a warmed french bread roll, condiments included.
