As the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing worldwide, businesses were forced to close its doors to the public. When you look at this situation on an economical level, we can all agree these businesses need our help as they are vital to sustaining the local economy and as a community, it is our duty to see them thrive once life will go back to normal. In the same train of thought, I have listed restaurants all located in Le Plateau-Mont-Royal district of Montreal that still deliver food or are open for takeout orders. Now, if you are scared of contracting COVID-19, I would suggest leaving a note on your order by specificating the delivery attendant to leave the order at your doorstep and once you open the package, transfer the food directly in plates and throw away the containers. Also, wash your hands!
How tempted are you if I told you, you can get the main course for the mere sum of 1$ upon purchasing a bottle of wine? Yes, you read correctly. Pastaga is a French bistro located in the Mile-End district and is known for its exhaustive selection of natural wines. So for the occasion, simply head on their website to see what you'll like to order, place your order by phone and pass by the resto to pick it up.
Phone orders from 11 am to 7 pm
pick-up from 12 pm to 8 pm

With several locations all throughout the island, Saint-Houblon will deliver right to your doorstep within a 2km radius from the restaurant with Foodora. Unfortunately, the Montreal microbrewery doesn't do beer delivery but the food itself is worth the visit. We shall just wait until this crisis is over for us to go and enjoy Saint-Houblon beers in the near future!
Right in the heart of Montreal's la Piccola Italia, the Italian restaurant offers both takeout orders and delivery with UberEats. Note that if you wish to give a restaurant a call without ordering through UberEats, it is also possible. Of course, small word to the wise, try one of their pizzas, they're to die for!

With delivery made possible through UberEats, Foodora and Skip the Dishes, the grand public is still able to enjoy Mediterranean cuisine all thanks to La Rose des Sables.

Another slice of heaven located in the heart of Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie is La Boulette. The latter roughly translates to a beef patty. This means if burgers are more up your alley, La Boulette should be your first and only choice! On top of that, they offer a takeout order and if you buy a full meal, you can get a bottle of wine for the mere sum of 21$ and a pint of Pilsner for 3$ big dollars! Talk about a promotion! Simply give a call to the restaurant to place your order.

If you need to stock up on natural wines and you're running quite low, Forget the SAQ and support a local business right at the edge of Little Italy. Indeed Le Diplomate allows you to buy bottles of natural wine at a discounted price (20% off). Moreover, if you need a bit more you can buy a case of wine at 25% off. Sounds great, doesn't it? However, booze is not the only greatness Le Diplomate offers, indeed you can satisfy your taste buds by ordering tasty French dishes and it's only a phone call away.

Craving Spanish tapas? Look no further, Bo' Dégat is here for you. Bo'Dégât is a play on word from the Spanish term bodega; a wine cellar. In French, we can simply say this is a fine mess (beau dégât) so combine the two and you're in for a treat. Now onto our patatas bravas, shall we? If you're down to eat Spanish delicacies, simply give the restaurant a call as they only deal with takeout orders.

With several locations all throughout Montreal, If you live right by Masson Avenue you would know how popular L'Oeufrier is. I mean, yes this might be a chain but for us, Montrealers, we take Sunday brunch very seriously. Indeed, so instead of feeling blue on that faithful day and you need a little pick-me-up, might as well indulge yourself with the classic benedict eggs. You don't even need to move an inch from your couch as L'Oeufrier operates with UberEats.

This is music to my ears when I hear a brewery is considered an essential business. Life works in funny ways. Yet in order to comply with the new sanitary directives, Harricana decided to launch its website by allowing the public to buy canned and bottled beers as well as gift cards. You can do everything directly on their website. The only downside is that their kitchen is closed so you cannot order anything from their menu for the time being. But supporting a local brewery undoubtedly outweighs the lack of food IMO.
Takeout available the same day
Monday to Friday
From 1 pm to 3 pm
Delivery available the day after
95 Jean-Talon Ouest
Another gem located on Masson street is this little place called Mojito & Margarita that combines the love of Mexico and Cuba into their dishes. Muy Caliente and delicioso! For their lunch and dinner menu, I would suggest you check their Facebook page and give the restaurant a call when you're ready to place your order!
