'Swell fellow' was the shop we visited. By chance we saw and had our coffees at 'lamour du pain'. It was great. Specially the giant croissants and different kind of breads. The service is very kind and quickly. Recomend you to visit.

There are many lovely boutiques and art galleries on this quaint, narrow street. It is a great place to window-shop or pick up a artisanal gift...or just watch the people go by.

This is a long street with interesting architecture, restaurants, galleries and tourist traps. It is home to l’hôtel Nelligan and brings you to the beautiful Place Jacques Cartier at the east end. Worth a walk!

there is a small lot on the street itself. If you get there before 8 there is parking. Pay the attendant. The easiest, park on Sherbrook, car is safe there and walk down the 10 minutes.
