Neighbourhoods
Little Italy at a glance Delineated to the south by Bellechasse, to the north by Jean-Talon, to the west by Saint-Laurent and to the east by Saint-Denis, this neighbourhood stars one of the city’s most famous food attractions, Jean-Talon Market, among the biggest and best four-season public markets in Montréal. The residential streets around the market feature mostly cute, small duplexes with exterior staircases, originally designed for the Italian railway and quarry workers of the area. The neighbourhood is nestled within a trifecta of metro stations: Jean-Talon, Beaubien and De Castelnau stations will all get you there, as will the 55 bus on the Main. Architecture and demographics Little Italy was still dominated by fields and farmland as recently as 1900. That history lives on in the Jean-Talon Market, originally where neighbouring farmers gathered to sell their fresh produce. Today, it’s a hopping, bustling place to wander about, shop, munch on street foods and more: meat, fish, cheese, bread, Mexican dishes at El Rey Del Taco, fresh oysters at La Boîte aux Huîtres, vegan sausages at Gusta – a world of flavours. Architecture fans will enjoy the many Art Deco buildings around the market, as well as the rows of tree-lined houses with painted spiral staircases – a Montréal classic. There’s a growing LGBT+ community establishing their homes in the area, as well as a ton of young families mixed in with the remaining Italian residents.

So hot and yet so cool—the Plateau moves to its own funky beat. Wrought-iron staircases, old-style stone masonry, walk-up duplexes, imported cars, second-hand bicycles, designer fashion boutiques and funky friperies (used clothing) stores: this working-class-turned-yuppie neighbourhood with bohemian undercurrents is by far the grooviest scene in Montréal. Those of us who don’t live here come to play as often as possible. The Plateau is the best window to view the real Montréal.
