Hotel Omni Mont-Royal
Loved the location, as it was central and easy to access all areas of the city.
Restaurant and Cafe
Le Vin Papillon
Sat at a picnic table on the back outdoor patio – the only place to be. These wings were only a part of an amazing late night dinner. Teamed with a bottle of organic wine, it had all the makings of a perfect summer evening.
Great space with delicious food to match. The lamb tartare is to die for.
The server recommended the burger and it certainly did not disappoint. Apparently, people come from all parts of the city for just the burger – now I understand why.
We had the pleasure of meeting chef/owner Derek Dammann who is a definitely a master at what he does. Not only was the evening a culinary adventure, his stories and sense of humour added to the night. Bar counter is the way to go!

What more needs to be said – the absolute best coffee in town. The local dairy Société Orignal that supplies the milk for the drinks is deliciously rich and sweet – no sugar needed. The beans come from 49th Parallel Roasters which is based in Vancouver. If you haven’t tried their coffee or bought their beans, you don’t know what you’re missing.
