Okay, that was maybe a bit of a dumb question. Everyone experiences the city differently, so probably only a handful of people would give me the answer I'm looking for. Still, I think we can all agree on one thing.
Montreal's Boulevard St. Laurent, otherwise known as the Main, is one of the best spots to be in Montreal. It's got tons of shops, businesses, cafes, and awesome spots to eat at!
Although you might know Dirty Dogs from their location on Mont Royal, their brand new, huge flagship location on St. Laurent is amazing. It's got seats for everyone, plus the restaurant's classic, delicious comfort food - like their famous mac and cheese poutine.
Like, yes, I know it's not cool to have my friends wait five/ten minutes before eating so I can get the perfect Insta shot of all our food. I know I'm a terrible person, but let me like what I like!
Anyway, rant aside, I've been into Instagram for a little while now, and I've kind of built up an intinerary of most of the coolest spots to Instagram in Montreal. And if you're wondering what exactly that is... well, wonder no more. I got your back.
A beautiful and fun rooftop terrasse overlooking a gorgeous view of the city? Yeah. Whip out those phones get ready to ignore that Storage Almost Full notification, guys; you'll be taking tons of perfect shots for IG.
Can a spot be simple, gorgeous, and trendy all at once? Yes. Yes it can. Leaves Cafe is all of this and more, and with their copious cacti and awesome lattes, this spot will leave both you and your Insta following seriously impressed.
Honestly, this is my favourite spot in the whole city to Instagram. There's something so gorgeous about the flowers and simple/familiar about those white bird cages that make it one of the most aesthetically pleasing spots in the city.
The Airs Libres outdoor art installation in Montreal's Gay Village is gorgeous on any given year. This year, though, it just so happens to be rainbow-themed, making it unique and beautiful and totally, totally Insta-worthy.
Quite possibly one of the most gorgeous interiors in Montreal, this spot is begging to be Instagrammed - but even the 'Gram doesn't do it justice, so trust me when I say you need to experience this spot for yourself.
Sure, you might think the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is where the IG likes are at. But that's a little tired at this point. If you're going to Insta a museum, head to the MAC instead, for a fresh twist on a much-loved Montreal activity.
It's got all the elements of a perfect dish: the salty, savoury ham; the sweet, tangy pineapple; the pizza. There are, thankfully, tons and tons of spots to get some delicious Hawaiian pizza in Montreal, but a handful of spots truly stand out.
If you love pizza in Montreal, then the chances are very high that you know all about Amelias. Beginning life as Amelios, and serving up pretty much the best all-cheese white pizza in the city, Amelias' Hawaiian pizza is a delicious alternative to an already awesome dish.
This Old Montreal restaurant takes the cake for fantastic pizza. They've got a wide array of toppings to choose from, and if you're feeling a little bit more tropical, their "Aloha" Hawaiian pizza (with chunks of sweet pineapple, slices of salty ham, cheese, sauce, bacon, and banana peppers) will seriously hit the spot.
Honestly, guys, if you're looking for some authentic AF pizza in the heart of downtown Montreall, look no further. Brigade has got you covered. Although they offer a wide array of pizzas (and you can even make your own!) their Hawaiian, with prosciutto cotto, pineapple, sauce, and cheese, is amazing.
This McGill Ghetto spot is known for its tasty, quick breakfasts, and above and beyond amazing, cheesy, doughy pizzas. Their Hawaiian pizzas in particular are spectacular: super simple, yet incredibly tasty.
Although Il Focolaio's regular Hawaiian pizza is legit the stuff of real legends, their Italian spin on it? OMG. Pure pizza perfection. Featuring pineapple, blue cheese, sauce, and mozzarella, this pie is something you cannot miss out on.
This downtown Montreal Italian restaurant is actually amazing. Not only do they serve up some of the straight-up tastiest dishes in the whole city, but their Hawaiian pizza just happens to be literally perfect, with sweet chunks of pineapple and ham blended perfectly with their tomato sauce and cheese.
Alright, I'm going to be upfront with you guys: I enjoy drinking. I do it responsibly, and I'm an adult, so as long as you fit these two criteria and you like drinking, too, then it's all good in my book.
