Your favorite Montreal terrasse

This flirtation with spring is a tease but we are on the verge of ideal terrasse conditions.

I was about to add in the Joe Beef thread that Dave and Fred have built a nice little area out back in which to dine this summer.

Other than that, I look forward to a drink at Verses Sky and Les Éclusiers, not to mention a bite at Café Méliès, Leméac, Bice and Aix La Terrace.

I also like the terrasse at Boris Bistro on McGill.

What Montreal terrasse do you jones for when the weather warms up?

N.B. I purposely did not resurrect the terrasse thread from 2003.

lemeac terrasse is nice and small enough not to over work the waiting staff; specially for weekend brunches.

I like Boris Bistro's terrasse, but with the actual road work on McGill, it's a bit too noisy and dusty; went there last friday for lunch and it was packed !! no one inside, everyone outside.

unfortunatly, I'm missing street-side terrasses, couple of small tables on the sidewalk, simple settings on crowded streets; there a some larger oneson Bernard st. but I wished we could have some on St-Laurent, Mont-Royal or St-Denis ( even if there are a few ones ).

Excellent point about Boris. I live around the corner and the construction in the area over the past year has been a major nuissance.

i've already seen many new sidewalk cafés around town. it's something that, until now, has really been missing from montreal.

le dépanneur café on bernard near esplanade has a good terrasse. there's a row of tables along the sidewalk out front, but in the back there is a garden with some tables and chairs strewn about. thick foliage, lots of plants. perfect on a hot summer day -- it's like the santropol terrasse with ten times fewer people.

I can't help thinking that terraces will be smokers havens this summer. I wonder if non-smokers are going to complain that they are surrounded by smokers.

Notice to all resto owners:

i would like byob terrasse

thank you

Why don't you open one yourself, and see how lucrative it can be.
