Island flavours in Montréal: Caribbean restaurants to try

Montréal’s Caribbean food scene has been modest for years. With several go-to spots around town, getting a taste of island cuisine used to be limited to only a handful of restaurants. Luckily for us, the options for Caribbean dining have blossomed over the years. From Jamaican to Cuban to Haitian, Montréal has established a solid roster of restaurants to get a taste of tropical island fare.

Boulangerie Spicee – 6889 Victoria Avenue

This Caribbean street food gem has been a favourite of locals for 40 years! Your go-to spot for spicy Jamaican beef patties, or fluffy and messy Trinidadian “chana doubles” – chickpea curry sandwiched between two fry-breads.
