Mile-End is a quaint yet contemporary quarter teaming with multiculturalism...

Mile-End is a quaint yet contemporary quarter teaming with multiculturalism and filled with cafés, bars, restaurants, specialty grocery shops, boutiques, galleries, hot yoga spots, great bakeries and Montreal-style bagels served fresh and hot. Many of its residents are eco-friendly and artistic -- in summer, it is not unusual to see guitarists strumming a tune.

Want to experience a unique part of Montreal with delicious sampling of local foods mixed with the special history of this part of the city? Then this is it. Our gudie Steve couldn't have been a better host. Remembered every one's name and was so engaging. This is what a tour should be like.

Vera was an awesome tour guide who made the whole group feel really connected! She brought us to amazing murals and would often tell us other neat and interesting facts about Montreal. We learned quite a lot and got to taste wonderful food along the way. My personal favourite was the gnocchi :)

A nice change of pace from the downtown bustle. Sprawling, tree-lined streets and shops with local vibes. Had a great afternoon strolling and perusing the local markets.

We took the Mile End Food Tour. The leader, Vera, took us around the neighborhood to various and different food markets with lots of history thrown in. This tour really gives you the feel of small town Montreal living.

What a lovely neighborhood. We went on the local Montreal food tour and went all over this neighborhood and really had a wonderful time. There are so many quaint restaurants, stores, bagel shops, chocolate shops, ice cream shops, everything you could ever want. Highly recommend going there

Nice area for a walk. Lots of neat residential homes with interesting staircases. Lots of vintage and independent design boutiques with cool finds. Can't go wrong with the Fairmount Bagels and great coffee and service from Caffé Grazie-Mille Fairmount.

This is a wonderful neighbourhood to stroll around. There are many lovely shops and some very interesting architecture. You get a nice feel for how a resident of Montreal lives. We stopped at the Grazie-Mille on Fairmount West for a lovely brunch. The owner was very personable and gave us great insights into Montreal and the Mile End district. Don't... More

I like this area. Lots to discover. Right outside Laurier Metro, heading toward St. Laurent, lots of cute streets with historical apartments. Interesting boutiques. Stop by tea at the Cardinal Tea Room on St. Laurent.

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.
