This is the main shopping street in Montreal. There are many great shops to browse from, many of them are American shops, however, there are some Canadian as well. Buyer Beware ... there is a 15% sales tax on everything you purchase in Montreal - OUCH!

This street should be avoided at all costs. Overcrowded, overpriced, tons of "street performers" ie pick pockets.

Every visit to Montreal must include a stroll down Ste.-Catherine Street. Through the heart of Montreal, you'll find shopping, cafés, restaurants and entertainment of every kind.

This street has many nice stores and restaurants along it. One can go to the famous Le Bay department store. Also don't forget that most stores and shopping centers are connected to the underground city and one can walk forever on a rainy day or cold day.

Street closed to traffic from Ste. Hubert and cafes and shops overflowed. Everyone readily switched from French to English, even the street beggars! People watching is prime sport, incredible eateries and some unusual shops. The atmosphere is welcoming - and the prices very reasonable. Beware, although all the frites served everywhere are tempting, they can be discomforting if you don't... More

Shopping? Why would one travel many thousands of kms to shop in a place where the sales tax is 15% and the selection is no better than 200 other cities across the globe, with more of the same, unless you are a real myopic fashion addict? Hugo Boss is .... just Hugo Boss The restaurants are average to poor. The... More

This was a great street to walk and observe people. There are a lot of stores so you better bring a lot of money.
