Sandwich lovers unite: From Mile-End to rue Wellington, we crisscrossed the city in search of the most spectacular sandwiches—leaving mere crumbs from the ultimate grilled cheese to the most authentic banh mi in our wake. And there's no better time to search for cheap eats. Shining a spotlight on the most sensational stuff in town between two slices of bread (or baguette, or a bagel...), we've rounded up our favourite sandwich shops (and the sandwiches that put them on the map).

Where to find the best sandwiches in Montreal

This family run sandwicheria is famous for their next-level sandwiches and long lines that are well worth the wait. We are obsessed with the Diavolo (layered aioli, salami, calabrese, capicollo, fontina, provolone, lettuce, tomatoes, banana peppers, marinated red onions, giardiniera) and the iconic Chicken Parm (basil oil, mozzarella, chicken cutlet, parmesan, hot peppers), which are made like a Bossa.

When you can't decide between the ultimate fried chicken sandwich—breaded fried chicken, homemade hot sauce, freshly chopped lettuce, herbs, pickles and pickled red onions—or the fried calamari BLT (calamari fried in polenta, braised romaine lettuce, Caesar dressing, bacon and parmesan), order both.


This bánh mì is the talk of the town thanks to crispy soft baguette, premium deli meat, homemade mayo, fresh cilantro, and their signature pickled carrots and daikon. We wouldn’t kick their famous spicy Bún bò Huế and Vietnamese buns (Bánh bao) out of bed, either.

This Mile-End staple—with a second location in Hochelaga—is casual spot takes their sandwiches seriously. The addictive grilled haloumi with mint slaw, honey and harissa mayo, and the pulled pork (slathered in homemade BBQ sauce, pickles, slaw, hot peppers and chipotle mayo), will keep you coming back for more.


From the Cuban (a spicy twist on pancetta, roasted pork, gruyere, pickles, lime, coriander and chipotle mayonnaise) to the Sconewich (a buttermilk biscuit topped with butter, 3 year old cheddar, ham and peach jam, this sandwich menu is filled with unbeatable flavour combinations.


From a jalapeno, gruyere, sauerkraut and caramelized onion grilled cheese to a next-level breakfast sandwich (sausage, fennel, egg and cheddar slathered in BBQ sauce), this tight menu is only made better by the accomplanying soups made for double-dipping.
