I live here on Laval street so I am biased...lol.It is a convenient Montreal address with the Sherbrooke Metro across. Above it, is the ITHQ, the hotel school , where you can have a fine meal at Noon at reasonable prices..Prince Arthur 's Casa Grec is also an option where you can bring your wine. It's on Prince Arthur street,... More

If I lived in Montreal, I believe I'd like a place overlooking Carre St-Louis. Although it is a relatively small park, it captures all that is beautiful about Montreal )even in the winter or early spring months). The square is surrounded by lovely homes. I can only imagine how the inhabitants of these enjoy sitting in the park or dog... More

To bad this should be a fun place were it would be nice to sit and relax before going to dinner . Lots of weird people on this place as you can see these people take over the place and keep the families out of the park as I never feel comfortable just crossing the park to bad .

It's a small square with a water fountain in the center and some benches to sit around the fountain. Every place in this city has a lot of junkies drunk so this square too.

Worth a walk-by for taking pictures of colored roofs. Nice park, takes you back to the Victorian times. Europe without jet lag.

This is a picture of a perfect Victorian park, a block square, with fountain, benches and a quaint cafe with outdoor tables. It invites you to take a deep breath and look at the trees and flowers, the relaxing people, and the surrounding colorful row houses. We encountered artists with easels during the day, and one evening, a tenor sang... More

On one of my morning sojourns I happened upon this quaint little park. It's defined but unrefined all at the same time. Breathtaking yet just a little bit rugged around the edges. What I loved was the little cafe, leK, or the Kiosk. There is a small menu which has a few hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and gelato. Certainly... More

SQUARE ST LOUIS in Montreal. There is a fountain of youth in this Square where I have lived for the last 20 years, on and off , between my stints in LA and TMR, and Jamaica, my beloveds. So, why do I like this Square. Because it has the imprevisibilty factor, the Bohemia factor, where you can have a major... More

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.
