Summer Stop in Montréal

Posted in Travel by

As many of you know, I spent 4.5 days in Montréal over the August long weekend (civic holiday in most of Canada). I was there for a 3-day music festival called Osheaga. The festival took up most of our time, but we did get a chance to do a few fun things as well. Here are some photos!

Coffee Break!

La Banquise – for classic poutine

la-banquise-poutine-classicOpen 24-hrs, La Banquise is the go-to for classic poutine in Montreal. But dare I say it – Toronto poutine is just as good / arguably better? :O

 

St. Viateur for bagels
