Le Plateau-Mont-Royal Tours

While technically a borough of Montreal, le Plateau-Mont-Royal cannot be defined by geographical zones. Le Plateau is a lifestyle, a mindset, a way of seeing beauty in everything and appreciating the smallest of things. It’s having al fresco lunch in centennial parks, it’s hopping from one indie coffee shop to another, it’s shopping at the plethora of local designer boutiques, it’s getting a table at the newest French bistro or Japanese izakaya. It’s the place to be. This once working class-only neighborhood evolved into grooviest and most sought-after scene in Montréal.

Filled with hipsters on the eastern side and young, hip families on the western side, le Plateau is basically Montreal in a nutshell. It is where the iconic, colorful staircases of Montreal are found, in the charming and narrow tree-lined streets perpendicular to Mont-Royal Avenue, the main thoroughfare. It is where visitors can get the highly disputed Montreal bagels at St-Viateur, taste the best smoked meat in the world at Schwartz and have the best after midnight snack, the infamous poutine at La Banquise. Fun fact: le Plateau is the most densely populated borough in Canada, with 101,054 people living in an 8.1 square kilometer (3.1 square miles) area.

Practical Info

The borough is easily accessible by public transit via several bus routes and by metro via stops Sherbrooke, Mont-Royal and Laurier on the orange line. The neighborhood is located, basically, between du Parc avenue on the west side, Sherbrooke St on the south, de Lorimier Avenue on the east side and rue des Carrières up north.
