The Best Restaurants in Mile-Ex, Montreal

Picture of Emily Paskevics
Updated: 10 December 2017
There’s a lot of buzz around the Mile-Ex neighborhood in Montreal, which is emerging from its industrial origins toward a trendier reputation—though it still has a bit of mystery about it. Officially called the “Alexandra-Marconi” district, Mile-Ex lies north of Mile End, from Parc Avenue to Clark Street, between Jean-Talon and the train tracks. If you’re looking to explore the foodie scene in Mile-Ex, here are some restaurants to get you started.

Dépanneur Le Pick Up

Sandwich Shop, $$$
Save to wishlist

Dépanneur Le Pick Up takes its inspiration from Montreal’s abundance of “deps,” or corner convenience stores. You can browse through a variety of items, from locally made jams and spreads to organic wines, handmade zines, and store-branded T-shirts, while waiting for your lunch order. You can get classic sandwiches as well as vegan “pulled pork,” salads, and burgers. There are also breakfast options.

Manitoba

Restaurant, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

The motto of Manitoba in Mile-Ex is manger sauvage, or “eat wild.” This restaurant is tucked away on a side street, making it feel like a local secret. Small and quaint, with simple décor, Manitoba serves dishes that are inspired by, and make use of, elements of Quebec’s wild heritage. You can try rare items such as seal, deer, and boar, in addition to other creative concoctions that range from appetizers to desserts.

Restaurant Mile-Ex

Restaurant, Contemporary, Fast Food, $$$
Save to wishlist

Restaurant Mile-Ex is a tiny spot that seats around 25 hungry customers at a time. Inspired by street food and fresh seafood cuisine, you’ll find a number of unusual, snackable items on their chalkboard menu—think seared calamari and cauliflower, burnt leek with sautéed whelks, or mussels with blue cheese and fries. There’s also the big “Motherf***er Burger,” which you can order as a simple, double, or heart-stopping triple. The Mile-Ex also offers catering services.

Dinette Triple Crown

Restaurant, American, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

Dinette Triple Crown is all about Southern comfort food, meaning that it’s got a full menu of all things crispy, deep-fried, and delicious. The fried chicken is the most popular choice, but there’s also mac and cheese, sandwiches (try the “Big Nasty”), and smoked brisket. If none of this heavy, greasy goodness is your thing, there’s usually a seasonal salad on the menu.

Le Diplomate

Restaurant, Bar, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

Le Diplomate is off the beaten track, which is rather reflective of the Mile-Ex neighborhood itself. Known for its relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere and its unconventional and generally tapas-style dishes, this is a great place to head to if you want to explore some new and inventive flavor combinations in both your food and your drinks.
