Osmo x Marusan

$$$$(514) 657-2835
Hours:MON
8AM-6PM

This mostly daytime cafe is run by the same people behind Fleurs et Cadeaux, a sushi and vinyl bar in Chinatown, but the focus here is on Japanese dishes, coffee, and drinks. The semi-basement, quasi-industrial space is the only place in town where you can dig into a curry bowl or happily unwrap a perfectly constructed katsu, karaage, egg, or avocado sando any time of day. You’ll find a crowd full of students and creatives hanging out on the long banquette, especially if you drop in for one of their special DJ nights Thursday through Saturday.

Mokili

Mokili in Villeray is a perfect place to sit at the counter, enjoy some Ghanian plantains, and chat with the chef.
