There were street vendors galore when we were there and many people around the square. There is a Cafe Kiosk on the Corner and the street vendors were displaying there wares nearby. Right in the middle of the Rue St. Catherine's shopping district.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
