Where to Eat, Sleep and Shop in Montreal

This bilingual city combines the best of both worlds: Canadian neighborliness and European chic.


Café Sardine
This tiny Mile End café/bar/coffee shop has the ambiance of a bistro (hanging lanterns, chalk board menu, lots of dark wood) and a menu that includes espresso, tapas, booze and fresh donuts.
9 Ave Fairmount E., 514-802-8899,

Really delicious modernized Korean food served in a bright, homey Mile End space.
177 Rue Bernard Ouest, 514-274-1464,

Pizzeria Magpie
From the simple margarita to the fennel sausage pie, this Le Plateau wood-fire pizza spot’s creations are just so…frickin delicious.
16 Maguire, 514-507-2900,


Bar Blue Dog
Cool, dancey and divey. Right on.

Dieu Du Ciel
A favorite amongst locals and beer nerds, this pub features dozens of brews (including its own) and the perfect laid-back, buzzy atmosphere.
29 Avenue Laurier Ouest, 514-490-9555,


Le Germain
Located in the heart of downtown Montreal, this minimalist-chic boutique hotel offers two of our favorite things: modern amenities (iPod docks, 24-hour gym) and affordable prices.
2050, rue Mansfield, 866-500-4938,

Le St James
This historic Old Montreal property is more palace than hotel—and features five-star service to match.
355 Saint-Jacques Rue, 514-841-3111,

Le St. Sulpice
Quaint, friendly, affordable and located steps away from the Old Port.
414 Rue Saint Sulpice, 514-288-1000,


This vintage poster gallery’s gorgeous 19th-century calendars and ‘50s Levi’s ads aren’t cheap, but they’re the kind of pieces you’ll have forever.
