The Mile End’s pizza
Why locals love it
You may have heard of Pizzeria Magpie thanks to its good reputation among hipsters in the trendy Mile End, but chances are, you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled when looking for it. Tucked on Maguire street right near the Main, this hole-in-the-wall is bustling with local foodies – even on weeknights.
Why you should visit it
Magpie’s menu is small but each item stands out. Start your meal off with their selection of oysters and tasty appetizers. Next, try the traditional Margherita, Mediterranean or opt for the pizza of the day, all baked in an authentic wood-burning oven. If you grew up Italian in Montreal, you’ll surely recognize the Pisa bottles they serve water in.
If your server gives you the option of switching your spinach & ricotta ravioli appetizer for the lobster alternative, do it!
