We were in the area for New Year's Eve and it was snowing. Beautiful area to explore. Bar L'Barouf on St. Denis was a great find. Great space and wonderful people.

This might be a charming neighborhood if it wan't in the middle of the winter with muddy and slushy sidewalks. The parks were covered in snow. Don't bother to visit the plateau if you are in Montreal in the winter.

We rented an apartment in the area for New Years. The location was great. It was a trendy area with great shopping, restaurants, and local bars. It wasn't crowded like downtown and was convenient to the metro.

Easy on-and-off from the Metro orange line Mont Royal. Eat breakfast/brunch at Beautys - so good and a fun atmosphere! The line for L'Avenue was too long, but it looked really good. Lots of fun shops, neat architecture, and little coffee shops. The Kouing Amann Boulangerie was INCREDIBLE! The Kouing Amann was piping hot out of the oven...so good!!! The... More

Taking long walks in the snowy evenings in this neighbourhood is peaceful and sometimes allow you to see the inside of these century old apartments with charming architecture.

As someone who lives on the south shore, i love to go to the Plateau very often for it’s colorful ambiance and people. There are always people playing music at the exit of the metro station. On Mount Royal Street there are so many cool little shops and restaurants open to anyone willing to try them! A few minutes away... More

I did not look into the map to get there but it was a nice walk up the hill. The view from the belvedere was great! I waited for a bus on my way back and it took a while to arrive, so plan well or dress warm...

I have stayed in many parts of Montreal during my short time living there, but I like this one the most. You can find many shops and little restaurants hidden just in the middle of regular apartment buildings. You can also find few parks where you can grill and bbq in the summer. Everyone here is really chilled and welcoming.... More

It is a very nice area to visit do shopping and if the sky is clear, very close to it there is the mountain where you can have a very great view of the city

Great neighbourhood for a leisurely stroll, lots of cafes, restaurants and interesting shops, all gave character and a nice escape from the usual suspects you see in any shopping centre

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.
