See you at Conference!

NLIP-IG has assembled a little guide to affordable destinations in Montreal. Here are some members' favourites! If you're on site at the Conference, you can pick up a print copy at the hospitality table, or at the First Timers' Breakfast tomorrow morning. See you there!

Patati Patata (4177 St-Laurent | Tel.: (514) 844-0216 )
Tiny place, tiny prices, and tiny burgers ...but with big taste! Located on trendy St. Laurent Boulevard this burger joint is a must for any hipster and has been voted one of Montreal’s best fast food locales by Mirror magazine. Also, try the poutine: some of the city’s finest!
Price: Under $10 for burger, fries, salad and a soft drink.

Chez Cora (1017 Ste-Catherine Est | Tel.: (514) 285-2672)
Montreal’s favourite breakfast joint serves huge portions that will no doubt please. The menu offers dozens of choices for both the health-conscious and for those who eat as if they are heading into the woods.
Price: Specials start at around $5 for a basic two-egg platter and go up to $12 for the lumberjacks.

Schwartz's Delicatessen (3895 St. Laurent | Tel.: (514) 842-4813)
Schwartz’s is a Montreal institution, the home of true Montreal soul food: the smoked meat sandwich. Tourists plan their Montreal vacations around Schwartz’s. Enough said.
Price: It’s hard to pay more than $10 a person.

La Maison VIP (1077 Clark | Tel.: (514) 861-1943)
Located in the heart of China Town (and close to the conference venue), La Maison VIP offers some of Montreal’s best Chinese cuisine. Try the General Tao chicken; you’ll dream of coming back to Montreal just for this dish.
Price: $15-25 per entree (worth every cent)

Café Olimpico (124 St-Viateur Ouest | Tel.: (514) 495-0746)
Serving Montreal’s best coffee for more than 30 years, this café is a must for java aficionados. Situated in Mile-End (one the trendiest neighborhood of Montreal....) it's definitely worth the detour.
Price: Under $5

Rockaberry (4275 rue Saint-Denis | Tel.: (514) 844-9479)
Rockaberry IS dessert heaven. With 30 different pies to choose from and great coffee to boot, how can you go wrong? You can eat these scrumptious desserts on site or take one away with you to enjoy later.
Price: Under $10 for a slice of pie and a coffee

L'Académie (4051 rue Saint-Denis | Tel.: (514) 849-2249)
Once a pricier place, L'Academie has reinvented itself as the place to go for mussels and inexpensive fare. A great apportez-votre-vin (bring your own wine) spot.
Price: Entrees typically run between $15 and $20

Brutopia (1219 rue Crescent | Tel.: (514) 393-9277)
Serving fresh full flavoured beers brewed onsite (try their renowned Raspberry brew), Brutopia is one of Montreal’s premiere brewpubs. The pub is spread across 3 floors with three outdoor terraces. Enjoy a great beer under the starry Montreal sky while listening to the live house band.
Price: Around $5-7 a pint

Sainte-Élisabeth (1412 Sainte Élisabeth | Tel.: (514)286-4302)
With one of the nicest terraces in the city, Sainte-Élisabeth is the place to go during the late spring and summer months. Famous for its Monday and Tuesday specials ($3 and $4 pints of Boreal).
Price: Around $5-7 a pint

Sir Winston Churchill Pub (1455-1459 Crescent | Tel.: (514) 288-3814)
The Sir Winston has become one of Montreal’s largest and best night spots with a huge dance floor, nine bars, and a terrace.
Price: Around $5-7 a pint

Pub St-Paul (124 St-Paul Est | Tel.: (514) 874-0485)
Located in the heart of old Montreal, overlooking the St-Lawrence River, Pub St-Paul's reputation lies in the quality of its menu and its live shows at night.
Price: Around $5-7 a pint

Laika (4040 Saint-Laurent |Tel.: (514) 842-8088)
Located on busy St. Laurent, its windows wide open in the summertime, its DJs spinning lounge-y, funky house, exotic drinks, yummy munchies... this is a place to relax but also to be seen.
Price: Food and drinks under $10
