It’s about time this page showed some of the delights of Plateau-Mont-Royal, mon quartier. There’s some pretty amazing street art and a lot of the cafés and shops have delightful paintwork outside.
The above two photographs are from Patati Patata, a sort of fast food joint with a twist on the corner of Rachel and St Laurent. Apparently it only has 13 seats.
These ones are from Avenue Duluth Est near the corner with St Laurent.
I like this one a lot. It’s from a shop called Utopia on Duluth. The whiff of weed inside is very strong!
A Montreal dépanneur, Plateau style.
I love this one from the corner of Duluth and Ave l’Hotel de Ville. Her hair is like fire flicking around the corner.
This is Chez José, a café on Duluth and l’Hotel de Ville. It does a fine breakfast. I was in here once, reading a book about Canada with a mug of tea, when the young man who worked there ranted at me for a good five minutes about how much he hated Canada. He’s an anglo Montrealer.
Home sweet home.
Couldn’t agree more fella.
