Les Sœurs Grises

Pub in Old Montréal

Named after the famous Montréal religious order of nuns founded by St Marguerite d’Youville, this swanky concrete-chic bistro-brasserie is equal parts microbrewery and smokehouse, serving a winning combination of brews and bites. Grab some smoked baby-back ribs, candied pheasant thighs or smoked trout, and wash it down with excellent house beers and silky stouts.

Try the Camélia – a white beer with a hint of floral and green-tea finish. Its location near the Old Port bike path makes it a good spot to unwind after cycling the Canal de Lachine.
