Montreal - Fun International Destination

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
Montreal is a moderate linguistic distortion of one of the city's fun sightseeing draws: Mont Royal.

Deli 12 Restaurant

Restaurant | "Deli12 Restaurant"

Montreal, like any tourist mecca, can be expensive in the tourist areas. But step just outside "the Zone" and inexpensive dining is readily available. Many meals at Deli 12 are below C$10, and serving sizes are extremely generous. You can eat breakfast here for under C$5. You can pay C$5 to C$7 for a hamburger here, or go one block into the tourist area and pay C$17. The atmosphere is clean and functional. Service is prompt and meals are swift and tasty. Deli 12 is immediately across the street from du Palais de Justice. When court is in session, it becomes popular, which should be a measure of this modest restaurant's ability to please an appetite.

You can also visit museums, take a tour boat, jump on a visiting naval vessel, or simply grab an ice-cream and stretch out on the shady grass and relax with a good book. Feel a little more adventurous? Rent a bicycle or a set of roller blades and you'll be in a cast of hundreds in all age ranges, pedaling and swirling around streets and bike paths. Bikes don't just travel the waterfront; they're found throughout the city. Just across the St. Lawrence river from Old Montreal are some of the city's well maintain...Read More
