Schwartz's Deli

A Montreal landmark that has welcomed countless celebrities and visitors from all over the world for almost a century, Schwartz’s Deli has been serving the world’s best smoked meat* since 1928.

Imagine walking through the door and taking a step back 95 years into Saint Laurence Blvd. history in Montreal...

Still in its original location and using its original recipe and old-world standard of excellence, Schwartz's was founded in 1928 by Reuben Schwartzs, a Jewish immigrant from Romania. Today, the deli is an integral part of the Plateau framework and surrounded by funky storefronts and trendy boutiques. Its trademark simplistic and communal style has been a haven for locals and tourists alike winter, spring, summer and fall, all seeking that perfectly unique experience.

Schwartz's prepares smoked meat the old-fashioned way, on location, using a secret blend of locally produced fine herbs and spices, marinated for 10 days; smoked overnight, steamed all day; and sliced “à la minute” by hand with love. Our smoked meat contains no preservatives. Come and enjoy for yourselves.
