The plateau is where you will find a lot of students living that attend McGill University. The plateau houses many homes that have been around since the 1940's. You can find such iconic places like Wilensky's, an icon restaurant since the early 1900's, St. Viateur bagel and Fairmount bagel. I also forgot Beauty's, one of the best breakfast places around....

I wanted to see what Montreal was like as a total city, so there was some value there. I may not have gotten to the more worthwhile part of the neighborhood. What I saw was so-so.

Had the good fortune to travel from NY to Montreal to visit a friend, and stay in Plateau Mont-Royal. Beautiful area that is perfectly located to go anywhere in Montreal (even by foot (if you don't mind a little walking). Got to eat in the "famous" Bagel place in the area, and in one of the more renown Poutine places.... More

Really enjoyed our time spent here shopping and eating. Sort of the Soho of Montreal - it's a great opportunity for strolling and the only place to find unique shops that aren't in the underground city.

We ended up in this area of Montreal when various aspects of the city caught our interest and kept pulling us deeper into the area. Ultimately, we encountered a bike rental shop and set out to really explore the neighborhood. It is a wonderful blend of busy shopping streets, filled with fun stores and great food, and quiet streets, filled... More

We loved exploring this part of the city. Do yourself a favor and brake away from the tourist sites and explore this wonderful area. We love it.

It's a long walk to the top! We went to Belvidere first, then stopped at the Chalet on the way down. Beautiful views both places and got some good exercise from the long walk. The park itself and the miles of pathways make this a bit like New York City's Central Park. Relaxing and enjoyable.

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.
