Montreal is the perfect combination of old, new, Western, and European. With this melting-pot nature comes a burst of different types of sights, activities, cuisines, and attractions to check out.
With so many options, it can be tough to narrow down an itinerary when visiting a place like Montreal. To give you a starting point, here are eight essential things to see and do the next time you’re in Montreal.
St. Viateur Bagel Shop
If you’re looking for bagels that match — if not surpass — those found in New York, look no further than St. Viateur Bagel Shop.
Just from the shop’s steam-filled windows and never-ending line of loyal customers, you know the quality you can expect from St. Viateur. Cooked in a woodfire oven and hand-shaped in front of you, it’s hard not to grab a few extra bagels for the road. Add a dollop of creme fraiche, Montreal’s upgraded version of traditional creme cheese, onto the quality bagels and a stop at St. Viateur is the perfect way to start your day.
