Being the market 'hood that it is, eating options abound. There are several enticing traditional French bistros around the Capucins covered food market, and international quick eats – bagels, kebabs, Japanese, Thai, Indian, Sri Lankan, Moroccan, Vietnamese – jostle for attention along the southern end of pedestrian rue Ste-Catherine and in front of Basilique St-Michel on place Canteloup. Gourmets note: rue Porte de la Monnaie is the city's self-proclaimed 'rue gourmande.'
