Absolutely enjoyed walking down this street. Not only were there less tourists, this area felt super local and real. Loved the Mamie Clafoutis bakery.

St. Denis is in my Top 3 favorite main streets of Montreal. It is full of unique shops, original chocolate factories, restaurants terraces, fashion boutiques, churches, history, beauty, etc. It reminds me a lot of Paris, of the area in Paris near Sorbonne University (I think it is called the Latin Quarter). Anyway, such a cute street. Don't miss it.... More

The street was under construction which was a shame at the time. Otherwise, this reminded of Newbury Street in Boston with the variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cafés. Would have liked to have spent more time here. Some restaurants and cafés have porches built on the street, so you can enjoy the weather, the views; the overall ambiance of... More

I echo most reviews that this is an interesting area to visit with lots of restaurants and bars. However, we saw a lot of drunkards on the street. I think people with kids need to know this. I don't recommend this area if you are travelling with kids. My son asked me many questions about the drunkards we saw and... More

In the Italian Quarter but not just Italian eateries. We dined outside at lunchtime and shared a pizza but we were actually spoilt for choice.

loads of restaurants, bars and cafes situated in the Latin quarter, called Latin because they use to speak Latin in the "old days" not because of a Latin-American influence

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.
