Welcome to Parma Cafe

When one thinks of real, authentic Italian Food, in Italy or abroad, the town of Parma will forever come to mind. Claiming fame for being the original home of Parmigiano cheese, prosciutto, cured meats and balsamic vinegar, while gaining cooking creditability from housing the Italian Food Academy, Montrealers are now in for a treat since Parmacafe opened up in the downtown core. Resting at 1202 Bishop, below St. Catherine, Parma Cafe is a Italian snack bar, an Italian Casse-Croute, a Pret-A-Manger lunch cafe and take-out spot that will satisfy every Italian craving, seven days a week. Parma Cafe is the city's GO TO spot for real Italian comfort food.

The Parma Cafe menu was designed and influenced by each of the owner’s backgrounds, joining flavours and recipes from two areas in Italy, Campagna & Sicily, while staying true to necessary ingredients and inspiration from Parma. Serving classic Italian dishes, like oven baked pizza, chicken cutlet sandwiches, sausage paninis, meatballs and daily pasta, soups and salads, each recipe stems from a famous Italian meal, with it's own Montreal twist. The cafe also is proud to offer a real Italian coffee bar and Italian desserts, alongside a take out grocery store market, specializing in imported olive and truffle oils, balsamic vinegars and homemade pasta and sauces for customers to purchase for home, something that does not yet exist in downtown Montreal.
