Where To Find Cheap Food Near Montreal's John Abbott College

John Abbott students must get that they're much-maligned and oft-forgotten when it comes to English Montreal CÉGEPs because of how far it is from everything. I've lived here my whole life and only know one person that went to John Abbott! Though some of you are convinced this place is a collective hallucination, John Abbott exists! 

You won't find much other than McGill's Macdonald campus and the lakeshore around John Abbott campus, which made this list of cheap places to eat especially difficult to compile. We managed it though! Surprisingly, y'all have a decent range of options. 

Thanks to Macdonald campus's proximity, John Abbott students have access to a ton of delicious farm-fresh produce and local recipes! There is also a variety of family-owned restaurants and cafés. It was a little more complicated to find truly cheap eats like those in downtown Montreal, but they're around if you look hard enough. 

Without further ado, here are the best cheap eats near John Abbott College!
