Le Plateau Montreal

The Watchful Eyes

On previous trips to Montreal, we’d always spent our time downtown or perhaps up on Mount Royal or along the canal path. Planning for our recent visit, I was reading about some of the neighborhoods in other parts of Montreal. The Plateau neighborhood seemed particularly intriguing being described by Wikipedia as “characterized by brightly coloured houses, cafรฉs, book shops, and a laissez-faire attitude.” We were also given to understand that there is some amazing murals and other wall art. Off we went on a rainy Friday morning to explore.

      Thank you. Yes, we do tend to go with neutral colors, unless you go to places like Key West with it’s wonderful pastels. Perhaps we should repaint our homes and start a trend. Cheers!

      Hello Soheir:
      Thank you. We were so glad we found this neighborhood. It was perfect for walking around on a chilly damp morning. And we found a restaurant that served the best homemade soups.
      I hope all is going well for you. Have a great day.
      Cheers =)
