We got off at the Laurier metro stop, walked towards Parc Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and could see what all the hype was about. A couple of decent coffee shops but not expresso heaven. Maybe the other direction was better but there was no indication.

Laurier St is an emblematic street in Outremont. Lined with cafés and great shopping. Don't miss having a café on the nice terrace of Toi, moi, café. I also recommend the following restaurants for a great typical dinner in Outremont: Chez Levesque ( typical bistro cuisine and decor), Lemeac ( very nice terrace, great cuisine)

There are a few cafes and uninteresting shops. Complete waste of time. This is not a "Rodeo Drive" in Montreal.

Loved the uniqueness of the shops and restaurants. L'Emouleur, the cutlery store was a cut above the rest. (Sorry, I couldn't help that one). Juliette et Chocolat for when you need a rest. Fabulous window shopping!

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
