Summer is all about doing things that you wouldn't do during any other season in Montreal. From sipping on drinks on a terrasse and roaming the many parks our city has to offer, to enjoying a delicious picnic outside, there are so many fun activities that can only be done during the heat of the summer. And, this year, there's a slew of Montreal restaurants offering picnic baskets for you and your friends to enjoy, making eating in a park that much more fabulous.
Each of the following spots will not only provide you with everything you will need for a picnic experience extraordinaire, but they'll also pack up some of the tastiest eats in the city for you to nosh on.
From Greek eateries and Italian meals to fried chicken, there's a picnic basket that will satisfy everyone's cravings.
There's something so enjoyable about a picnic, not only can it be a romantic date, but it can also be a fun way of spending time with your crew while embracing the summer heat.
