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.

While Old Montreal feels like a theme park designed to be a tourist magnet, this street has a more authentic feel. The street pretty much never sleeps, at least when I saw it in August. It has a lot of bars and cafes and it's a great place to have a nice morning breakfast or a late night drink.

This is a really awesome, buzzing, busy street. If you are vegan/vegetarian. No worries. There's a Chinese restaurant of twenty dollars all u can eat. There's Vego. The pastries r good here. Try Rockaberry. The truffle cake is ...oh my heavens. Lots of shops! Lots to see. A must on your list.

We kept reading about the great shopping on this street so we went there. There were lots of restaurants and it was a great place for lunch. There was a cool bike jumping event (Mud Rocker) happening in the street. What there wasn't, however, was great shopping. There were a few shops to be clear but I wouldn't designate Rue... More

This is by far our best memory of Montreal. The road side cafes (I mean we were literally sitting at a table on the street) and the beer from the micro breweries....WOW!!! You will not believe that you are not in Europe somewhere. It is absolutely refreshing....just a walk along this street and a pint of beer with some fries...thats... More

Great restaurants along the way. We usually go there for breakfast crepes when in Montreal. Good selection of all types of restaurants. Start around the intersection of St Catherine and St Denis, up and down. Great atmosphere anytime of the year especially during the summers.
