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

This is an area that has countless shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the sights, sounds and aromas as we passed along the street. It seems to be a magnet for young and old to find shops and restaurants offering many varieties of food.

Highly interesting area of Montréal. Universities, clubs, patio eating, parks, and festivals line the street. A can't miss visit while in Montréal. There is not much fine dining. Also, this area touts a large BLGT population which we loved.

This is the place to eat. The student restaurants around the 1600's (street numbers) are good value for money. The food isn't bad either.

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.
