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.

Cool area - great restaurants

Really cool area of Montreal to explore. Dozens of restaurants (both established and hipsterish) and shops to wander. Make sure to get a bagel at St. Viator.

We came here by the metro, took a little walk around, ate and then when round the area by bus. It is a bit of a hipster area going by the shops, independent clothes and music shops rather than chain stores. There was the odd quirky shop, second hand shop but I also felt the prices a bit on the... More

This neighborhood is the hipster paradise of Montreal! You will find great food, fun places to have a drink or a coffee, lots of unique shops, nice public seating areas, interesting wall art, a very diverse crowd and typical Montreal architecture. Very good area to go to get away from the touristy Old-Montreal/Downtown areas and the over-gentrified and very expensive... More

Went on the Mile End food tour in Montreal. Our guide, Vera, was great! She is very passionate about her city and this definitely was portrayed on the food tour. Very knowledgeable about Montreal. The food stops were amazing! A definite must if you're in Montreal!

Francoise was a fabulous guide. Don't eat anything before the tour. There are many samples of the local cuisine finished off with lovely ice cream

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 :)

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.
