An afternoon snack at Montreal's Café Town

Last Saturday, S and I went to Montreal for the day last and made a pilgrimmage to Sakura Gardens for a mid-afternoon snack of ramen. But when we got there it wasn't open, so we crossed the street to eat at a little place called Café Town instead.

Café Town is one of those below-street-level cafés that are common in Montreal and serve a small selection of sandwiches, pizzas and desserts. It had a tiny sunken patio, and some other small, tippy table-and-chair sets on the sidewalk above it. We found some seating in the shade, and ordered pizza and French beer. I felt very Parisian!

We shared a traditional pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms and green peppers, and each drank a bottle of Kronenbourg 1664, for $24. The waiter was very nice and took good care of us.

It's a very sweet and unpretentious place — perfect for an afternoon snack after shopping on Ste-Catherine. It doesn't seem to have much of a web presence yet, so it's nice to be one of the first people to write about it.
