Rue Saint-Denis begins down in Old Montreal and heads all the way up to the northern tip of the island of Montreal and apparently is one of the few streets in the city to cross the entire island! Most of the time it is devoted to eating, drinking and all sorts of entertainment, so if you're looking for somewhere to... More

Your hotel was located on St. Denis. We walked this street and found it to be hospitable, friendly and representative of the wonderful people that live in Montreal. It has that bon vivant feel to it.

Walked down Rue St. Denis expecting nice shops and restaurants and art etc. overall was VERY disappointed. There was some art and some cool bar fronts but the sidewalks were very dirty, many storefronts out of business and essentially just any normal street with bars. Not sure why so many good reviews but I assume they are from folks who... More

I was in Montreal for 4 days and found myself on this street every.single.day! There are outdoor cafes and little shops. The restaurants on this street are BYOB with a liquor store conveniently located right across the street.

during our visit in September most of the street from Sherbrooke to Mont Real was dug up, making walking and visiting the shops difficult

From the Plateau end to the Latin Quarter end, it`s full of shops, cafes and restaurants. One of my favourite streets in Montreal.

We didn't go inside we walked around the outside and took pics. Beautiful church with lots of history. In an area with lots of food choices.

We stayed very close to this street so walked it often. It has many outdoor cafes and lots of people no matter the time of day. The only down side is that there are a fair number of homeless people begging and at one point I went in to the McDonald's Cafe to get a soft drink only to have... 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.
