Restaurants, souvenir shops, clothing, specialty items, stores featuring locally-made products... this street has them all. Be sure to check out the Marchè Bonsecours (formerly the main public market, now filled with boutique shops and Canadian goods) at one end, and Pointe-à-Callière Museum (archaeology and history in Old Montreal) at the other.

St Paul Street is in Old Montreal, it has cafes, bakeries and restaurants. Boutique and craft shops but seems to have an increasing number of tourist orientated shops as well. Still worth browsing when you are in Old Montreal

This street is full of wonderful boulangeries, cafes, and restaurants, as well as little shops. It is gourmet food heaven with Bocatta, Borocco, Olive et Gourmando, Bistro Marche de la Villette. We frequented this street on our holiday.

There are so many fine places to visit along this street: Galleries, eateries, and fine shops! We managed to do a bit of all. We were enthralled by the Inuit Art Gallery.

It is absolutely unnecessary to go to Europe to taste the flavour of France. Rue St-Paul is in Old Montreal, perhaps the most visited destination in the city. Charming, unique, excellent restaurants, exciting and full of life, you are transported to France.

During Christmas and New Year's time the place is beautifully lit and decorated. But during this time it is very cold and so mandatory stops have to be made at nearby cafes. There were many shops and cafes about that allowed us to warm up before continuing our adventure!

Expensive little boutiques mixed with bistros and restaurants and art galleries, this is a great place to explore during the spring,summer and fall.Very charming atmosphere with the cobble stoned streets and beautiful old buildings

Rue St-Paul is simply a delight to view, see the various boutiques & restaurants, it is a beautiful part of Old Montreal, you are only steps away from the port, or the old City Hall and Notre Dame Cathedral; all making this a fantastic experience for any one looking for a piece of Europe. Bring good walking shoes!

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
