If you love meat and sandwiches, this is the place for you. Schwartz is a deli institution that offers Montreal’s signature sandwich made of smoked, tender and juicy meat. You cannot go to Montreal and not try this specialty.
I do not know whether you can call Schwartz a restaurant but if so, it is definitely one like no other. The meat sandwich is pretty much the only dish it offers but it is really delicious. When I visited I had it together with a giant pickle which was truly delightful.
The place is rather small, there are a few tables and a bar area. Most of the times you would need to queue in order to be able to sit down and enjoy your meal. If you prefer not to wait, you can order take away. Also, do not expect a service as per Montreal standards but at least it is fast.
