This is a one of a kind square. It is completely surrounded by gorgeous Victorian homes. It was bright in a dull winter day. It also leads directly onto Rue St. Denis which is full of shops and cafes. Worth a visit

Trees, leaves, autumn colours, friendly squirrels... I love walking through this square almost every day and especially in autumn when leaves crunch under your feet, and the sun comes through the trees.

We visited St. Louis Square in Montreal just to see the beautiful brightly trimmed Victorians. These homes are so gorgeous and very worth the stop!

Sunday afternoon, sunny and warm! What best way to enjoy Montreal by walking the street of the belle ville. Make sure you stop by the cafe in the park and sit down enjoying the view.

I live here on Laval street so I am biased...lol.It is a convenient Montreal address with the Sherbrooke Metro across. Above it, is the ITHQ, the hotel school , where you can have a fine meal at Noon at reasonable prices..Prince Arthur 's Casa Grec is also an option where you can bring your wine.

To bad this should be a fun place were it would be nice to sit and relax before going to dinner . Lots of weird people on this place as you can see these people take over the place and keep the families out of the park as I never feel comfortable just crossing the park to bad .

It's a small square with a water fountain in the center and some benches to sit around the fountain. Every place in this city has a lot of junkies drunk so this square too.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
