34 Ave. Fairmount W., Montreal, Quebec H2T 2M1, Canada

Located in the Mile End area, Wilensky’s Light Lunch serves unfussy sandwiches and fountain sodas. Opened in 1932, the restaurant was made an icon by Mordecai Richler’s The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1959). Today, patrons sit at one of nine counter stools at the Jewish diner and order the house special — a bologna and salami sandwich pressed in a plancha-like grill. Served on wax paper, the sandwich comes with rules: it always has mustard and is never halved. Wilensky’s makes soda-fountain cherry Cokes and homemade egg creams (chocolate syrup with soda water and milk).
