And being a city that deals with some serious cold, we know a thing or two about a hearty meal.

Everyone's got their comfort food. Luckily for us, we've got lots of options.

Craving pizza? There's a spot for you. And don't worry all of you burger-lovers out there, we've got you covered too.

Don't even get me started on you poutine fanatics.

Because they say the way to the heart is through the stomach. But I think that the way to the soul is through the stomach, too.

I mean is there anything better than warming up on a cool evening at an awesome restaurant with some incredible comfort food?

Maybe a glass of red wine in hand, but that's just me.

Check out these restaurants below for some serious comfort food this chilly season.

Taverne Gaspar

Address: 89, rue de la Commune E., Montreal, QC

Taverne Gaspar may just be one of the homiest places in the entire city and always makes you feel right at home.

Serving pub-style food with a Montreal flair, it's the perfect spot to celebrate anything or pop in any time.


Le Chien Fumant

Address: 4710, rue Lanaudiere, Montreal, QC

You'd expect a restaurant that translates to "the smoking dog" to have a super warm and cozy vibe and it does not disappoint.

And the food is even more impressive. The French-style bistro is rightfully considered one of the top in all of Montreal.


Le Boucan 

Address: 1886, rue Notre-Dame O., Montreal, QC

This smokehouse lives by the motto "We have the gravy running through our veins."

Serving up Southern-style barbeque and local faves, like poutine, you're bound to find something that'll give you that comfort fix you're looking for.


L'Gros Luxe 

Address: See website for various locations

L'Gros Luxe is the perfect blend of antique decor and modern comfort. Each location has its own personal flair, but each welcomes you with open arms.

It's also got an incredible menu, including vegetarian and vegan options.


La Belle et La Boeuf 

Address: See website for various locations

Nothing says comfort quite like a really good burger. And nothing says a burger in Montreal quite like La Belle et La Boeuf.

This Montreal staple has been serving up tasty burgers and great vibes for years and is a definite go-to when your belly's in need of some warmth.


Trattoria Gio 

Address: 452, Place Jacques-Cartier, Montreal, QC

You didn't really think we'd have a cozy, comfort list without an Italian restaurant, did you? Trattoria Gio is an old-school Italian spot with a big-time heart.

Speaking of heart, you'll get a great view of the heart of Old Montreal. Talk about romantic.


Liverpool House 

Address: 2501, rue Notre-Dame O., Montreal, QC

From the team that brought you the iconic Joe Beef comes another fantastic spot: Liverpool House. Offering market-style comfort plates.


Burgundy Lion

Address: 2496, rue Notre-Dame O., Montreal, QC

Even us Canadians can agree that if anyone knows how to stay warm when it's cold outside, it's the Brits. Especially when it comes to their pubs.

Burgundy Lion in Little Burgundy is a British-style pub with all of the food and flair to go along with it. And, yes, the pints.


Dig in, everyone!
