Great place to go for a walk and take in the local craziness of Montreal, the street is full of great little restaurants and pubs with loads of interesting people walking about in the summer months. This is a must area for couples looking to make the most out of their Montreal experience.

St- Denis, truly and extraordinary street. It spans 4 different areas of the city and goes from rich to poor to in between to crazy wealthy. It is a lovely street to walk down, start with breakfast or brunch, then coffee and end at the end of the street with lunch. The shopping is out-of-this-world, fun, unique and eclectic shops...

If you are looking for options this is your street. There are 300 dynamic stores on Saint-Denis street and not to mention plenty of restaurants. Stop by have a quick coffee or go to a vintage store. You will not be disappointed.

There is only one French bistro left from the 80's everything else either became a fast food or a cafe and most of it way over-priced.. There is a good microbrewery but since it's alone in its class it's usually packed to the rafters . IMO if you're looking for tourist interests and architecture stick to old Montreal.

St-Denis is a great place to walk in Montreal with many small boutiques and goos restaurants. The best place to start is from Mont-Royal street going south all the way to Roy and then coming back up on the other side of the street. Some of the best places to stop along the way are Chuchai (for a vegetarian meal)... More

I sometimes shop on St-Denis street just above Sherbrooke Street. There are many unique boutiques and I always manage to find parking on the street. I sometimes wander below Sherbrooke as there is the St-Sulpice for the variety of beer. For a bite to eat stop in at Café Cherrier for lunch!

For those who love small and unique shops as well as those who enjoy a good dining experience walk up St-Denis from the Old Montreal up to Mont-Royal street. Enjoyable discoveries

There is a lot going on on Rue St. Denis, plenty of cute restaurants and shops, etc. to check out, especially during the summer. Strolling down the street in winter isn't quite as fun, but there are plenty of places to stop in if you get too cold!

Don't expect a fancy street here or a historical site like in Europe. Mainly an old residential street with plenty of good local and ethnic restaurants (Greek, Italian, Mediterranean) where you are required to bring your own wine. Many restaurants are even excellent.

Upscale shops and restaurants. Many places close by 5:00, so go early if you want to do any shopping.
