Happy National Sandwich Day! 🥪
Let's be real — there's nothing quite as satisfying as a perfect sandwich. The bread. The toppings (or the shtuff as I like to call it). The way it all comes together in one beautiful bite.
Even something as simple as a sandwich is given the Montreal passion and love for food to make some mouth-watering creations.
If you've been trying to satisfy a craving or if you're just having one of those days where a damn good sandwich would really do some good, then check out some of these must-try Montreal sandwich spots.
