This was a bit disappointing if you expect a hip and trendy neighbourhood. No young designers. Lots of shops closed down. A lot of china direct shops and a lot of the same shops. There are some gems on this street though like Eva B and Royal burger and animalerie too zoo. but aside from that not much. it also... More

This is pretty much the main street of the city. It used to divide the French speaking population to the east from the English speaking west, but it's way more diverse than that. There is China town and plenty of other ethnic communities present along that street. It opens up to the old center of the city, so it makes... More

If you're lucky enough to be here for one of the close the street events it's wonderful. Any food you want is here. (I still love Schwartz's the best)> It is definitely worth walking this street!!!

Walked from schwartzes deli down to the port. Good walk with much for the eyes to see. We happened upon an African musical festival, saw a huge outdoor market in Chinatown and saw many interesting sights. Good way to enjoy the city by foot.

A good street to get the flavour of Montreal. Portuguise seems to be the main immigrant influence on much of the street. Many good restaurants for all budgets. Many bars and clothing shops too. Definetly should be visited. Walking or public transit available.

Lots of restaurants and shops. Some recommended restaurants here were SUWU, Schwartz, and Juliette et Chocolate. Visited during the Mural Festival and was lots of fun! The street was closed down for the festival. Had sidewalk sales and patios.

Many of my favorite restaurant is located on Saint Laurent! I had best croissant ever at Boulangerie Au Pain Dore :) I can't have such a delicious one in Taiwan and I still miss it sometimes. I also liked their quiche, yet croissant is the best. Just right across the boulangerie, there's also a popular cafe called Juliette & Chocolate,... More

If you are into furniture design/trends, visit this area. Very beautiful designer furniture stores with lots of character. Big loft buildings with brickwalls and polished concrete floors. There are nice cafes there too. Intervension sofa store which is a Quebec-based designer store was one of my favorites.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
