Visiting Montreal

Montreal in November might sound like a chilly experience but there’s plenty to enjoy, indoors and out!







  • Montreal is known for bagels (you can settle the feud between the two long-standing shops)
    • Fairmount Bagels at 74 Avenue Fairmount West
    • St-Viateur Bagels at 263 Rue Saint Viateur West (a block apart)
  • Poutine – 24 hours a day at La Banquise 994 Rue Rachel Est or try Maamm Bolduc at 4351 Avenue de Lorimier, both a bus number 24 ride away
  • Schwartz’s smoked meat—a Montreal staple—3895 Boul St-Laurent
  • – ‘Best of Montreal’ offers plenty of ideas about restaurants/coffee shops to try
  • – ‘Eater 38’ and ‘Heat Map’ offer links to recommended restaurants with a map display
  • – offers restaurant suggestions with comments about whether they would be kid friendly
  • – Montreal Coffee Map (independent coffee shops)


Fun for everyone!
