994 Rue Rachel E, Montréal, QC H2J 2J3, Canada
I'm almost ashamed to admit to you how many times I visited La Banquise during one four-day trip to Montreal. Almost ashamed, but generally very proud to announce that I managed to put away the Classique on five separate occasions. Please don't...

1562 Avenue Laurier E, Montréal, QC H2J 1H9, Canada
Frite Alors! isn't entirely dedicated to poutine. It's first and foremost a Belgian-style french fry eatery, and in Montreal, he who says french fries says poutine. What makes the poutine at Frite Alors! so delicious is 1) the incredible fries,...

4436 Rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1W5, Canada
The brisket "burnt ends" poutine at Blackstrap BBQ is one of the best in Montreal. The rest of the menu is delicious as well, especially the ribs and chicken. Full review of it here: http://willtravelforfood.com/2012/10/14/blackstrap-bbq-montreal/...

Montreal, QC, Canada
You might not think that Canadian history is a topic that would sustain your interest for too long, but a visit to the McCord Museum will likely change that preconception. With a tagline of "Our People, Our Stories," the museum is committed to...

859 Rue Sherbrooke O, Montréal, QC H3A 0C4, Canada
“Located on the campus of McGill University, the quirky Redpath presents three floors of dinosaurs, mummies, letters from Charles Darwin, and totem poles frozen in time. It is one of Canada’s oldest museums, dating to 1882,” says Nathalie Bondil,...

Rue Jeanne-Mance, Montréal, QC H2X 3X5, Canada
It's funny how quickly things change. What used to be a semi run-down, rowdy area has been transformed into the glorious Festivals Square it was meant to be, thanks to a little sprucing up and new infrastructure. Montreal is probably the world...

3670 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2X 2V4, Canada
Yes, there is Old Montreal and the shops of rue Sainte-Catherine. But Montreal is much more, especially in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood, a place famous for its alternative atmosphere. Here you find tons of street art, each piece more...
Save Place
Av du Parc, Montréal, QC H2W 1S8, Canada
The drum circle, or Tam Tams, at the George-Étienne Cartier Monument in Mount Royal Park, Montreal, attracts a wide range of people. It's less "hippie" and more "carnival" than most drum circles I've experienced. Starts around 1pm on summer...

705 Rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H3B 4G5, Canada
Montreal's underground city is an ingenuous network of tunnels connecting office towers, malls, metro stations, universities, and hotels. These 33 kilometers of walkways and 120 access points are nestled under street level. Montrealers and...

Gay Village, Montreal, QC, Canada
It’s not a derogatory name. It’s really called The Gay Village. Or simply, the Village. The Village runs roughly from the Berri-Uqam to Papineau metro for almost 2 kilometers along Sainte-Catherine Street, making it the largest area of its kind in...

1260 Chemin Remembrance, Montréal, QC H3H 1A2, Canada
From the top of Mont Royal (the city's namesake), you get this view over downtown and the St. Lawrence River. Frederick Law Olmstead (the same guy who designed New York's Central Park), laid out the public park—including "the Mountain," the city's...

7070 Avenue Henri-Julien, Montréal, QC H2S 3S3, Canada
After Toronto, Montréal is the Canadian city with the largest population of residents of Italian descent. For more than a century, the community has been centered in one of the city's most charming neighborhoods, Little Italy. The way to...

110 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal, QC H2Y 1T2, Canada
A church—or, at least, a small chapel—has stood on the site of the Basilica of Notre-Dame since shortly after Ville-Marie (Montréal's predecessor) was founded in 1642. The current building, however, dates to 1829 and was...

2931 Rue Masson, Montréal, QC H1Y 1X5, Canada
Madre restaurant is good at any time but their brunch is definitely one of the best in the city. The poached eggs and chorizo bubbles with caramelized onions and the french toast are delicious! Read more about my experience at Madre on my blog.

138 Avenue Atwater, Montréal, QC H4C 2H6, Canada
The whole province of Quebec takes its agriculture very seriously, and consequently you can find some incredibly fresh, tasty products. The vendors at Atwater Market are passionate about what they sell, and they are more than happy to talk all...

1616 Rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H3H 1L7, Canada
I'm from Montreal, but I moved away in 2001. However, on my return visits—and there have been many—I've tried the new foods the city has to offer. Recently, I came across Grumman 78, a taco truck that also has an outpost in the Le Faubourg mall...
