Mile-End is a quaint yet contemporary quarter teaming with multiculturalism and filled with cafés, bars, restaurants, specialty grocery shops, boutiques, galleries, hot yoga spots, great bakeries and Montreal-style bagels served fresh and hot. Many of its residents are eco-friendly and artistic -- in summer, it is not unusual to see guitarists strumming a tune.

Interesting neighborhood.

The architecture of this neighborhood is beautiful, well worth driving or walking by to see where the people live and not only the major tourists areas.

We were told to see this area by if we want to see musicians and Jewish quarter but there were none and there were about four blocks where the Hasidim live. The ar a is run down, dirty, nothing to see. Waste of time and a long walk from Metro.

I visited Mile End 3 times over the course of a six day visit to Montreal. Once was on a fantastic food tasting tour, once on a Wheels of Montreal cycling tour and the other by myself on foot as I walked from Mont Royal Metro station west to the lookout on top of Mont Royal. Really interesting to see... More

Here is a very quaint spot in the city where you can see the old world architecture , some hippie shops and some great art places and "montreal bagel" places. You get a very different feel of the city and experience what some of the immigrants to the area felt. I love the diversity of the area andcompare it somewhat... More

This was the Mile End food tour...just delicious. Our guide was Ann Marie, who did a fantastic job of describing the places we tried and the Mile End area. We got to actually taste more than just a bite, which we had not expected. We tried half a pita/falafel, which was excellent, beer/cheese/dried meat, a bagel/cream cheese, some Greek pastry,...

Called Canada's "hipster capital" this neighborhood has great shops and good restaurants. A diverse neighborhood, try the Jewish bagels or the greek eats. Book stores, artists, etc. Something for everyone.

I have stayed in the Mile End neighborhood of Montreal twice now and love it. Old world charm meets new age artsy is how I describe it. Brick triplex homes, bicycles and little shops everywhere. My favorite spots are KemCoBa for some homemade icecream, a greasy spoon called Fameux and all the independently run little shops in between are amazing.... More

I disliked that Trip Advisor City Guide led us to Mile End road which is not at all where the Mile End neighborhood is. Especially since we were walking.....the extra blocks and blocks were not appreciated. However.....once we got to the neighborhood we found a delightful place to have lunch which made it all worth while. The Arts Cafe with... More

We spent a leisurely half day walking about this area. Stopped off at one of the many coffee and cake shops to watch the world go by. Next up a book and music shop again one of many selling old and new books. Found a bagel shop where you saw bagel dough being prepared, cut, shaped and baked. Carried on... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
