Does the return of summer in the Quartier des Spectacles make you want to discover new things? Whether you’re looking to eat at one of the picnic tables on pedestrianized Sainte-Catherine Street or sit comfortably in a dining room, the many restaurants in the heart of downtown are ready to welcome you during your lunch break. Enjoy your favourite dishes with friends and colleagues. Bon appétit!

Take your taste buds around the world!

Go to Italy for a pizza from No 900, or stop in North Africa with a couscous from Menthe et couscous, not to mention Thailand with Mia Thai Cuisine, Tibet with Chez Gatsé or Japan with Nagoya Sushi.

Looking for a light lunch and a coffee on the way?

Stop in at Lola Rosa or Resto Végo to grab a vegan or vegetarian bite that will make your mouth water! To accompany your meal with a caffeine fix, try the famous Café Pista and Café SAT, both of which offer exceptional coffee and on-the-go dining options. For a great atmosphere with colleagues, stop by Café Parvis for its tasty pizzas and salads, or experience the brand-new Café Constance, with its Art Déco atmosphere and locally inspired menu.

Can't decide?

Le Central's gourmet food court is open for lunch Thursday through Saturday and features icons of the Montreal dining scene and emerging restaurateurs who can't be ignored. Among the impressive array of choices, stop by Bonita's Tacos & Deli for traditional and reinvented tacos, Ramen Misoya for decadent ramen soup, Cantine Emilia for a burst of Portuguese-flavours or Ho Lee Chix for succulent fried chicken and other Chinese fare!
