Our last day in Montreal we headed to the Mile End neighborhood to explore. It is not known as a tourist area and we wanted to experience a bit of what life in Montreal is like for residents. In addition to a coffeehouse that has live music almost every hour, we stopped at Delicieux for lunch.
I hadn’t done any research to know what we were in for, but the food was wonderful. Everyone orders inside and then the food is brought to you if the place is slow or you pick up from a counter when busy. It was slow during our visit and we sat outside.
We decided to begin with elaborate smoothies.
They were yummers! Next we each picked out a signature bowl.
Again, yummers! We were very pleasantly surprised by the food, which was our consistent response to the food in Montreal. Everything was incredible.
Delicieux gets four out of five vegan cupcakes. The food was wonderful, if a bit challenging to know what we were ordering. For example, the “smoothies” are not exactly smoothies, so we were not sure what we were getting. They are more like bowls in elaborate glasses. But the place is worth visiting if ever in Mile End Montreal.
