Lazy, rainy Mondays in the service industry, when the rest of the world is hating the first day of work, are there to catch up on sleep, house chores and friends. So this week, I was meeting a buddy for lunch in Old Montreal. I don’t really roam in that area of Montreal during the day so I didn’t really know where to go.
Luckily for me, he lives in the area and suggested I try out Cafe Titanic. What sold me was that his mom had liked it. If an immigrant parent likes something in a restaurant then you know it’s good. For those who don’t know, most immigrants believe in the supremacy of home cooking and are extremely critical when it comes to restaurant food.
Esthetically speaking, the restaurant was super cozy and very detailed oriented, very pleasant to the eye. The service was extremely helpful knowing that it was my first time there. It was a cafeteria-style ordering which was brought to your table once prepped. My friend and I ordered the soup, a tortellini and mushroom with what seemed to be a beef/soy sauce broth. We also shared two sandwiches, a cold roast beef one and a warm BBQ chicken one. The sandwiches were full of flavors, topped with fresh buns and big enough to hold you for a full day.
There is no alcohol but a variety of fun beverages and the coffee was phenomenal. All around my experience was great and I will definitely be going back with out-of-towners and on my lazy Mondays.
