Visiting from Los Angeles. Suggestions?

Hi. We'll will be visiting Montreal next week for just 3 days. We'll be staying in Old Montreal. We're looking for good food, of course! Anything special we should try? Our group has a couple of omnivores and a couple of pescatarian / vegetarians. We're not looking for the fanciest places, just good.

I know about the bagels (can't wait). I also know about Marche Jean-Talon and will definitely be going there. What other things / places should we seek out?

Also, I'd love to do a bit of Xmas shopping. Anything special I should look for, that I can easily transport home? I have to get a lot of gifts, so small / affordable / portable type things would be great. Maybe spices from the market? Does anyone have any ideas or favorites?

Thanks in advance for your help!!
