Le Café du Monde
Located beside the Old Port cruise terminal, this waterfront eatery serves Parisian-style bistro fare amid panoramic views of the St. Lawrence River. Despite an unassuming exterior, the Art Deco-style dining room is bright and inviting, with wall-to-wall windows, black-and-white-tiled floors, a zinc bar, and round bistro tables. During the summer, outdoor terrace seating provides views of sailboats and cruise ships. The menu includes French classics such as steak frites with Béarnaise sauce, and brunch dishes like poached egg with lobster and hollandaise. Set in the center of the restaurant, the wine cellar contains almost 2,000 bottles from around the world.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
