Family Friendly Montreal Restaurants You Should Try

1. Cocktail Hawaii

If you find yourself exploring the shops on St Catherine street in downtown Montreal, check out Cocktail Hawaii at 1645 Boulevard De Maisonneuve Ouest near rue Guy. They are known for their fresh juices, crepes, smoothies and desserts. It’s been around for ages and is a favourite spot for Concordia students. The atmosphere is very family friendly with colourful decor and large stuffed animals swinging off fake palm trees. The prices are great and all the ingredients are fresh with the crepes and smoothies made in front of you.

2. Restaurant 786

If you are a fan of ethnic cuisine, check out Restaurant 786 on Jean Talon (address is 768 rue Jean-Talon Ouest). It is an Indo-Pakistani restaurant serving up traditional meals like biryani (rice with marinated meat), nihari (tender beef stew), chapli kebabs (round, flat beef patty), bbq whole fish and chicken charga (bbq whole chicken). Although the decor is nautical, the restaurant has a limited fish and seafood menu. The prices are very reasonable and the food can be spicy. They have a separate family section where you could eat in privacy. If the little ones are too exhausted to eat in the restaurant, you can order ahead and pick up some food to take home. Be sure to check out the Indian, Greek, and Eastern European stores along the Jean Talon strip to complete your exotic journey to Montreal’s most multicultural neighbourhood.

3. Jardin Nelson Restaurant

For those hot summer days and cool nights, visit the outdoor oasis of Jardin Nelson restaurant which is situated in Montreal’s Old Part, just off Cartier Square. On weekends they sometimes have live music and delicious sweet or savoury crepes on the menu. At night, the outdoor garden terrasse is lit up with strings of lights and the whole atmosphere feels like an outdoor party.


4. Original Fairmount Bagel Bakery

Watch how bagels are made in an old fashioned wood burning oven at the Original Fairmount Bagel Bakery at 74 Fairmount West. This family-owned business still makes bagels which are rolled by hand. The Factory started up in 1919 and has been at this location since 1949.
