Stumbled upon this place after getting off our Grayline tour. Atmosphere was good and food was better. The rice and burrito wrap were delicious and staff nice. Worth stopping by

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the

restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
