Patati Patata’s a casse-croûte fixture that’s been in Montreal for over two decades. Originally founded by Louis Dumontier in 1996, it’s thrived on Saint-Laurent Boulevard ever since with good, cheap food in an unpretentious atmosphere. The concept here is straightforward: Affordable snacks from morning until the early hours when bars close. A cozy interior and a facade painted by artist Étienne Martin gives it an old-world charm, and the menu features a range of comfort foods like burgers, grilled cheese, poutines, and soups, with breakfast options throughout the day. Small in size, you may have to wait during busy hours, but it won’t take long to get a table and get a taste of local life in the Plateau.
