Café Souvenir is pleased to announce the arrival of a new chef at the heart of this legendary Outremont diner. Chosen for his solid cooking experience, as well as his talent for culinary innovation; Tom Allain joins the current team of chefs, Michael and Paul Johnson, who have been at the helm of the Café’s kitchens for over 25 years.

Chef Tom Allain

From Saint John, New Brunswick, Tom has over ten years of experience and has been chef for several famous restaurants such as Hotel Herman, Attica and Nora Gray.

While retaining the classics that are the cornerstones of Café Souvenir‘s reputation, Tom has developed a brand new evening menu. Above all, it combines traditional French cuisine with Asian flavors; which seems quite appropriate for a place that likes to combine travel memories on its walls. Therefore, it will be possible to taste the latest dishes in the evening, 7 days a week, in a friendly European bistro-style atmosphere.

As the Café’s owners were happy to tell us:

It was important for us not to put aside our old menu, but rather to modernize it. We always offer familiar dishes, but now a little more refined. We continue to affirm our presence by improving the quality of our cuisine to raise it to the height of the talent of our new chef. Thefefore, we are really happy to be able to offer this to our loyal customers.

While the evening menu is getting a revamp after a reign of 27 years, the Café continues to serve its famous brunches to everyone’s delight.

Café Souvenir

Nestled on Bernard Street since 1992, Café Souvenir is an institution in motion that wants to evolve while retaining the essence of the place and the cuisine attached to it. Therefore, it’s a safe bet that Tom Allain will brilliantly continue this mission.
