Wilensky's Light Lunch

34 Fairmount St. West, Montreal,QC, XX - (514) 271-0247
A Spartan corner diner with institutional green walls and an elbow-worn wood-grain pattern Formica counter. The Wilensky "special" is available garnished one and only one way, with mustard. It is thin slices of all-beef baloney and salami on a roll, the whole package cooked in a press. The diner is museum-quiet.

The timeworn character of Willensky's gives it a charm that transcends the sandwiches, cherry Cokes and egg creams on its menu.

Here's the dish for which Willensky's is known, a pressed-flat sandwich containing slices of bologna and salami. Cheese is the only option.

It's unusual at mealtime to find empty seats at Willensky's counter. Nobody lingers; this is a place where customers are encouraged to eat it and beat it.

Have it your way? No. At Wilensky's you have your sandwich Wilensky's way.

A genuine egg cream (here called a frappe), perfectly made, meaning that there are still streaked veins of chocolate syrup in the bottom of the glass.
