Al-Fresco Everything in Montreal
Another way Montrealers enjoy the balmy summer weather is by spending countless hours in cafés and restaurants, but not just any random ones: the ones that open out onto the street or way high up into the sky, the ones that offer a more sophisticated version of an alfresco activity, be it for drinks or for food. Suite 701 is located atop the Place d’Armes hotel in Old-Montreal and overlooks the stunning Notre-Dame Basilica, which definitely makes for a nice backdrop in a classy setting—same goes for Terrasse Nelligan. Pub Sainte-Elisabeth in dowtown, Centre Saint-Ambroise in Lachine, Boris Bistro in Old-Montreal and Café Olimpico in the Mile-End are all local favorites with a laid-back atmosphere, true to Montreal’s nature.
