“The Other Mountain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Lovely area, with lovely homes and tree lined streets. Great shopping on Laurier st. west and outdoor dining on Bernard street. Give you a true view of French upper middle class.

“The borough I call home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

I've lived in this neighborhood for over 10 years now, and love the convenience of it. We happen to have three amazing bakeries within a five-minute walk of our house. You can't go wrong with the food choices here; there's something for everyone, from upscale gourmet food to chef-prepared salads and take-out to your favourite fast food joints. A very happy event was when Amelio's (an Italian eatery that is famous in the McGill Ghetto) moved into the neighborhood. And don't forget ice cream: Outremont boasts the best ice cream in the city at Bilboquet. not to be contrary or anything, but I prefer their sorbets! For all kinds of gourmet supplies (chocolate, coffee, imported foods, truffles, coffee, etc.), a visit to Gerard Van Houtte is a must.
Outremont has several public parks, making it one of the greenest areas in Montreal. It's pleasant to walk under the towering maples. Or walk through the well-kept Mount Royal cemetery to reach Mount Royal park.
Window shop along Laurier for high fashion and home decor, but go to Van Horne to find one-of-a-kind local handicrafts at Yazz.
The hipper Mile End neighborhood is just a few steps away, with freshly made bagels, popular coffee joints and a funkier selection of clothing.
Outremont is easily accessibly by metro (the Outremont stop) and by bus (80 from Place des Arts, 160 or 161 from points east and west, and 51 from Cote-Sainte-Catherine).
