“Lots of Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

There were all types of food and shopping options along the st. Catherine. I literally walked for miles shopping, eating and site seeing. Definite must see street for tourist.

“Good shopping street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

If you're like me, you like to get out and about in the local shopping scene! The place to head is Rue St Catherine. There are a number of shopping centres (try the Eaton Centre) including lots of eateries. For various reasons, I ended up walking the whole (very long) street and at the outer fringes, there are small supermarkets (handy if you don't want to eat out in very expensive Montreal for every meal), pharmacies and fabric shops. It's worth moving away from the main part of the drag if you have time or the inclination.

“Shop to your heart's content”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Ste Catherine is a very "happening" place - Montreal women know how to dress and it shows - you will not be able to complete your shopping in one day - besides the stores, there is the food and the people watching....

“great shopping and eating place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The Rue St-Catherine is a very busy road and many people there around 10:00pm. There are many good restaurants. We ate a Korean BBQ buffet there. Very delicious food.

“Eateries, coffee, shopping and more eateries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

They say that this is the busy street in Montreal - it may well be as there are times when one can hardly move. Don't worry about the rule which suggests you stay on the right side of the sidewalk - anything goes whether it be on the road or the sidewalk. Just adapt and enjoy the fun.

Boutiques are everywhere and if you are a fashionista - it's a dreamworld. We tried a lot of the restaurants in this area and they are all very good. The Eaton Centre and the Bay are also in residence as well as access to the large underground city. Continue up to Peel street, cut to the left and there is the Dorchester Park - a beautiful place to rest, have a coffee and watch the squirrels before heading back to Catherine for 'another run'.
