Thoroughly enjoyed this and many other neighborhoods! We walked 15 miles around town. I'd happily do it again!

Montreal is all is a quaint city with such wonderful culture. Rue St Denis is rich with architecture, eateries, arts and nightlife.

If you truly want to experience the Quebec French culture you must visit Saint Denis Street. It has all the finest restaurants and shops in a scenic and cultured atmosphere.

Lots of shops, restaurants, bars, and did I say shopping already? Lululemon is here! And lots of unique boutiques as well. I also liked the red streets with the red chairs and red tables. Also, the French quotes on the floor!

This is a young and vibrant area of Montreal. There are plenty of good restaurants and pubs of any kind (but don't expected them to be too fancy, you are the wrong place for that) and it's a very good place where to hang out with friends.

Regardless of the time of year, St. Denis is a great street for strolling and people watching. Located in Montreal's Latin Quarter, one can feel the bohemian vibes given off by those who live, work, or just enjoy this part of town. From one end of the street to the other, good eateries and bars are plentiful. St. Denis is... More

We walked this street every day we were in Montreal. There are plenty of places for great dining and also many good coffee and breakfast stops. Along the way, there are many fine historical buildings to see.

This must be one of Montreal's hippest neighbourhoods. The whole street is lined with cute walkups, tons of restaurants and coffee shops, and loads of stores, both independents, and chains (Urban Outfitters, Gap, Lush....). It is a great place to stroll for a few hours, grab a bite, and people-watch. The whole area definitely has a great energy, and young... 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.
