Stoll through the Plateau area

Took a walk on Good Friday. Many of the shops were closed, but a definite vibe in the area. modern and traditional shops and great exercise, starting from Rene Leveque.

Loved walking in this neighborhood exploring the shops and restaurants,there is a small town feel to all of it. We discovered the park which at 8pm was full of people out walking in the cold. Just a lovely place.

Some of the neighborhoods on the plateau have the loveliest Victorian houses with wide porches, manicured gardens and almost gothic towers. Some of them looked like something out of Harry Potter. Really nice and great for photos, but if coming in Winter walking around can be difficult with all the snow and chill.

This is where you're gonna find all the special dining places and shopping secrets. This street (and all that neighbourhood) is the hipster mecca.

Once you are in the area and you walk between the small streets you can admire beautiful, antique houses, very well decorated with beautiful flowers. I lived in this area for 8 months and loved it, very close to shops, very family type, the park la fountain is gorgeous its a must to visit as well. Tip: best time to... More

Well before March we went and haven't been for ages. Restaurants are cute, with catchy names. Parking is a total disaster--take a taxi. Prices are exorbitant but food can be good or ordinary--depends where you go. Personally, Old Montreal is waaaaay better, but it's no bargain either. For me the plateau is a 'gotta miss' after years of trying.

Mont Royal is a must. It's a landmark right in the middle of the city. Very unique with a wonderful view of the city at the lookout points Don't say you did Montreal if you didn't go to the top of Mont Royal.

A crisp -17 Celsius with the sun out, gave a extremely good visibility overlooking on one side of Mont Royal, Laval and on the other side Montreal. Gives a birds eye view of two great cities.

My wife and I climbed up this"Mountain". In reality a very bih "HILL". I'm afraid of heights but wanted to explore. My wife loved it, but next time I'm sticking to the trails.

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.
