Back when I made the mistake of going to Katz's what I was really craving was a smoked meat sandwich, Montreal style. Not only does Mile End have smoked meat sandwiches, they also serve poutine and sell Montreal bagels straight from St-Viateur. These are things I've been missing for years and now I can enjoy them without having to go all the way to Montreal. They also have great/expensive pickles and Stumptown coffee. I recommend this place.
