A happy-go-lucky spot in the Old Port, just off the banks of the St. Lawrence, Café du Monde has tinkling glasses hanging from the circular bar and white-aproned servers merrily whirling about, lending it the feel of a carnival space. It's sizable, with stairs leading up to a big dining room with old-fashioned tile floors and tables draped in white. It attracts a mostly local crowd of regulars but newcomers are welcomed (no Parisian-style attitude here), and the menu is as fun and easygoing as the rest of the place. The food is superb and focused squarely on bistro fare: duck confit, beef tartare, sweetbreads, roasted lamb knuckles, and cassoulet.

Open Monday through Friday 11:30 am to 11 pm, Saturday and Sunday 9:30 am to 11 pm.
