St Denis is a good place to come and walk around if you have time outside of old Montreal et al. Little restaurants and cool little shops. They have a Fluevog store here and that alone was why I came. This unique shoes are sought after around the globe and I have ordered a few via their website but it... More

This is just an average city street dotted with shops on both street. On a nice sunny day, it would be a good walk to take from St. Louis Square to Place Jacques-Cartier in the Vieux Montreal. On a rainy winter day, the sidewalk is littered with debris, icy slush, and mud, not great for walking.

While I enjoyed the heavily touristed Old Montréal, Rue St Denis had a more authentic vibe of what this French speaking city is all about. Go at night. There are many excellent restaurants located all along the street.

Saint-Denis serves as one of the primary thoroughfares of both the Latin Quarter, where it plays host to a number of bars and restaurants, to the Plateau Mont-Royal, where it is known as one of the best places to view Montreal's distinct style of architecture. It is named for Saint Denis of Paris. We walked here one night after a... More

Although the rue St. Catherine shops and Crescent St. bars appeal to tourists, especially English speakers, rue St. Denis has its own more vibrant presentation of restaurants, boutiques and bars.

Rue St. Denis is home of the Latin Villa area, which has a hub of restaurants and bars located a block from the metro line. There are all types of cuisine and in an area not as busy as downtown.

As someone else had mentioned--not unlike Newberry Street in Boston. Interesting shops and good restaurants. Highly recommend Café Cherrier--best meal we had in Montreal--and they were all very good.

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

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood 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 colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
