We just love to walk on Laurier. Nice boutiques, great restaurants and variety groceries. Make sure to shop at Gourmet Laurier for Fine products and eat pastries and cappuccino at La Gascogne

One can't visit Montreal without picking up a travel guide that recommends this tony shopping district on the outskirts of the Plateau neighborhood. Don't waste your time. Parking was impossible. Public lots have as many as a dozen spaces. Not only is the parking expensive but once on the street you really can't buy anything for under $1,000.00 US. Typical... More

The area of Laurier west of Papineau, for about 6 or 8 blocks is called Le petit Laurier. Less expensive and more casual, more neighborly than the section west of Parc, it is full of little bistros and nice shops. It also includes a very large and pleasant park, Wilfred Laurier. A very nice street to visit. We ate at... More

We stopped in at the gourmet shop and picked up some items. Also visited the bakery and chocolate shop. We strolled a couple of residential streets, very pleasant area.

If you visit Laurier Avenue and you visit Greene Ave. You have in a snap shot visited Franch and English Canada. Same city, same level of elegance but two different cultures and flavors. That is the one of the hidden treasures in Montreal. So beautiful in its historical diversity.

An authentic French neighborhood in Montreal, shopping, groceries, something more like a real neighborhood than Rue Sherbrooke

A long but very pleasant Avenue containing a park with plenty of squirrels,nice healthy looking young people,a supermarket,SAQ,various coffee shops(not the Dutch kind!) and arty shops,restaurants and cafés and houses with scenic cast-iron stairways to balconies with more healthy and good looking young people sitting around in the sunshine smiling and chatting.A nice place to chill out generally.

Had a very European vibe. Some of the best restaurants I ate at in Montreal are located on that street. Has also interesting French (from France?) shops for shopping peppered throughout the street. Very nice.

Laurier street is a local treasure. If you know San Francisco, it will evoque Union street in a certain way. Magnificiently maintained, filled with locals going there for a meal or shopping. Though shopping here is really expansive.... Several outstanding and classic Montreal's restaurants are there ( Mikado- a sushi place-, Lemeac, a french bistro, etc...). On Park avenue, nearby,...

When you will drive down this street, you will be unimpressed. The old garage, car wash will not heighten your aesthetic senses, and you will reluctantly park in what you assume is the I reputable side of town. And then you will enter the establishment you have in mind and you will see things in another light. This short street... More
