Restaurant A.A. in Saint-Henri boasts a long-standing legacy as a beloved local diner. Owner André Annoussos and his 50+ years in the businesshas helped keep its old-school charm intact.

The restaurant’s got a small, narrow layout featuring a long counter and a few booths where hungry nighthawks flood in for late-night offerings including steamies, toasties, and a unique poutine recipe you can’t find elsewhere in the city—it’s all in the gravy. A steadfast fixture cherished for comforting classics and lightning-speed service, it’s an essential on any self-respecting Montrealer’s late-night eats bucket list.
