Let's face it. The place is a dump with over warn tables, tableware and decor. But that is not the reason you go here: it is the food! Smoked meat and other favorites make this place special. Hasn't changed in 50 years? Terrific.

You can do traditional breakfast, lunch etc with a special ambiance. Hot smoked meat (lean) with fries is a standard, but try anything that you think interesting. A local experience.

This place is still an authentic Jewish deli. For brunch we had the Montreal smoked meat Beni, and the spinach Beni, with hot latkes. To die for ... and I'm not even Jewish. The place is clean, quirky, and not at all pretentious. Loved it.

I never thought of this spot for breakfast, but it works. Not crowded which is a plus. Blintzes. Lox. Bagels. Herring. Eggs. Great coffee. Makes sense to me!

There are better delis in Montreal or at least better known ones but this is a good place that won't be as busy on a Saturday morning. Worth checking out.
