Saint-Viateur bagel et café
Found at 1127, av. Mont-Royal East, Saint-Viateur is a true Plateau classic. This eatery has been around since 1957 and is still standing strong.

Whether you’re already a fan of poutine or haven’t given in to the temptation yet, La Banquise, located at 994 Rue Rachel East, is a must.
The neighborhood staple has been around since 1968 and is open 24/7. Want to keep the party going after the bars close? No problem - they serve a variety of beers, including their own brew.
If you’re more of a breakfast lover, they’ve got you covered with a variety of traditional breakfast plates, omelets, sandwiches, and yes - breakfast poutines.
Their menu holds an impressive list of 30 regular poutine flavours and one delicious vegan poutine, too. Dare to try them all?
Have a sweet tooth? Indulge in a visit to Cacao 70 - although they now have several locations, the Plateau address at 929 Mont-Royal Ave East is a must-try.
In its cozy atmosphere, you can enjoy an array of rich desserts, hot chocolates and coffee, sandwiches, and brunch plates. Whether you decide to visit this location for asatisfying lunch or finish off your dinner with a sumptuous, chocolate-laden dessert, you will leave Cacao 70 feeling satisfied.
Local Shops On The Mont-Royal Plateau
The Plateau is home to many quirky, hip, and artsy shops that are a far-cry from what you’ll find in downtown malls. All of the shops listed below are local because here at Mondev, we strongly believe in supporting local businesses.
Our first shopping location is a thrift store! Make your way to 3800 St Laurent Blvd and you’ll be surprised by its eccentric vibe and unique finds. They also host seasonal fashion shows in collaboration with neighboring stores as well as other thematic evening events. If you have time on your hands, you’re bound to find real treasures here.
Looking for a rare gem? Located at 5145 St Laurent Blvd, this store is filled with beautiful jewelry made by local artisans, as well as unique clothing created by Canadian designers.
They provide an online store and shipping, but do yourself a favour and visit their brick and mortar store to appreciate the cozy, warm atmosphere of Montreal’s old architecture.
If you’re looking to add some decorations and furniture to your new place, this is the store for you. The Zone Maison is located on 6816 St Laurent Blvd, however, it has grown to 7 stores. It offers a wide selection of decorative and practical products that will make your place look better than you can imagine! Stock moves quickly so if you find an item you like, our advice is to grab right away because it might not be there next time.
Whether you're looking to add some life inside or outside of your new place, this store has you covered.

Le belvédère Kondiaronk
At the top of Mount Royal, only a 30-minute walk away from the heart of the Plateau, lie the best views of the city of Montreal. You’ll be left breathless by the sprawling view of the city, the mountains, and even the Olympic stadium and beyond at 1576 Voie Camillien-Houde. There’s no better spot in Montreal to appreciate the changing of the four seasons than right here at the top of our city’s world-renowned mountain.
One of the city’s biggest parks, Parc Lafontaine is located at 3819 Avenue Calixa-Lavallée. It’s a perfect spot to enjoy birdwatching, relaxing near the ponds, or bringing your friends over for a BBQ.

Found at 5200 Brebeuf St, just down the street from our new 468SG rental project, this park sports an outdoor pool and paddling pool for kids.

You can also bring your dog to the popular dog park, or take advantage of the occasional outdoor concerts here. The park is not only great for the summer, an outdoor skating rink is created here during the winter time.
