Like many burgeoning neighborhoods, row house–lined Saint-Henri by the Lachine Canal in Montreal has long straddled the line between getting there and having arrived. But that’s exactly when a newly hatched food scene is at its most dynamic. Head there now.

Crèmerie 
Dalla Rose

At this scoop shop 
and cookie bakery run by alums from the restaurant Nora Gray, the two treats combine forces for next-level 
ice cream sandwiches. Try the sunflower 
seed between ginger-molasses cookies. dallarose.ca

Arthurs Nosh Bar 


Stray from smoked meat at this updated Montreal-Jewish 
lunch counter from Joe Beef vets Raegan Steinberg and 
Alex Cohen. The Moroccan toast offers thick-sliced challah with a tangle of Israeli salad, chickpeas and a poached egg on top. facebook.com/arthursmtl.


Libertine Bakehouse

The signature at pastry chef Nick Kemball’s bakery is brioche feuilletée, a flaky croissant-brioche love child. Try it with the addictive hot toddy marmalade, infused with smoky Lapsang Souchong tea. libertinebakehouse.com

Saint-Henri Micro Torréfacteur

In addition 
to roasting meticulously sourced beans, this coffee pioneer sells its own line 
of sodas in flavors like the very Quebecois pine-spiked 
spruce beer. Next up: a new location in Ontario. sainthenri.ca.


Torteria Lupita 


This cheerful family-run joint serves a mean breaded chicken sandwich and aguas frescas. Because it’s Quebec, a plate of rice and refried beans 
comes with cheese curds. torterialupita.com
