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.

Walking towards Mont Royal we chose to walk Rue St Denis all the way up north and we really loved it. We started at the Quartier Latin which is a nice student area with all kind of bars, restaurants, young people and things going on. Further up north you cross a nice park which is a good spot to chill... More

It is very safe and clean There are cafes and restaurants and butiques for every style and budget. I wish we had m;ore time... More

This was such a great street to spend hours and hours walking on, this past weekend. So many funky shops to stroll into and buy fun things for all kinds of budgets, many great restaurants, patios. The street is so great b/c, unlike old montreal, it's not "touristy" but filled with many locals. We liked it so much we spent... More

This is a fun busy street to walk along. Lots of interesting shops and great restaurants. Seems to be buzzing with activity day and night. Well worth a stroll on your way to/from Old Montreal.
