I strongly believe Côte-des-Neiges is an underrated district. Nevertheless, for many years numerous amazing restaurants, coffee shops and bars have opened its doors. This excitement has really revived the atmosphere and life of this neighborhood and frankly, it feels great. Because I love this area so much I wish to spread the love. That say, today's I'm granting you 5 restaurants to try near the street Côte-des-Neiges according to your daily schedule.

For a cup of coffee or to study
During the morning, right before a class or before heading to work, head to Caravane Café located on Lacombe street corner Gatineau. The decor is breathtaking (perfect for you Instagram!) and their breakfast menu is truly affordable: eggs benedict with mash potatoes and a salad for less than 6.95$. Lovin' it!

In between breaks
If you're not in a rush and wish to sit in for lunch, why not visit Sindibad, a Lebanese restaurant. Their shishtaouk pita sandwich costs less than 3.50$ and their whole combo for less than 10$. In terms of price/quality, Sindibad highly figures on my favourite Lebanese restaurants' list.

During lunch break, might as well head to Chez Aunt Dai, a Chinese restaurant which recently has opened its doors. Forget about fries dishes, general tao and other Americanized Chinese dishes. You'll rather find sautéeds and dumplings (jiaozi), typical meals from the Chinese culture. Another plus: it's a bring your own wine kinda place.

Les Tontons Flingleurs is a French bistro perfect for happy hour but also a great setting for a dinner between friends or for a date night. Their menu is pretty representative to other French bistros: all you can eat mussels, steak-fries, tartars and burgers obviously. I personally love their Bloody Ceasar's, their oysters at 1$ everyday from 4-7pm and their price fixed menu at 35$

A night out
If you wish to unwind and enjoy a pint of Lager after a ong day, head to Irish Pub McCarold's located on Chemin Côte-des-Neiges and Lacombe. In this neighborhood, you'll find plenty of bars since the latter is mostly a student district, which is why this is my favourite place to hang out in Montreal. I love their poutine, its burgers variety and their pizza without forgetting to mention their impressive beer selection. The outdoor terrace during the summer is worth a visit!
