12 Peaceful Montreal Spots To Take Yourself On A Solo Date When You Need A Little Me-Time

Taking some me-time is definitely good from time-to-time. In fact, it's downright necessary. And since we live in one of the most romantic cities in North America, why not take yourself on a Montreal solo date? You know you deserve it.

There's no denying that Montreal is filled with so many amazing things to see and do.

But one of the best parts of the city is that no matter how many times you go somewhere, you can discover something new that you hadn't noticed before.

And maybe even discover something about yourself, too.

Because going on a solo-date is more than just going somewhere by yourself. It's about going with yourself.

Since there are so many great spots to go on a date in the city, we included some classic spots and some that be surprising.

After all, there's nothing better than going into a date not knowing what to expect and having it be even better than expected.

So whether you're single, in a relationship or it's complicated, it's time to plan your next solo date.

Montreal Museum Of Fine Arts

Address: 1380, rue Sherbrooke O., Montreal, QC

Take yourself through some of the most beautiful and thought-provoking works in the city. Plus, when you're by yourself, you're free to stop, think, go back, whatever you please.


Cafe Aunja

Address: 1448, rue Sherbrooke O., Montreal, QC

One of the coziest spots in the city, Cafe Aunja is a Persian cafe downtown with tea, coffee, plates and a whole lot of love.


Botanical Garden

Address: 4101, rue Sherbrooke E., Montreal, QC

There's so much to see and explore at the Montreal Botanical Garden. The themed gardens and greenhouses bring people from all over, but there's lots of room for you to explore on your own.


Old Montreal

Definitely one of the most romantic spots in the city, show yourself some love as you walk the streets of Old Montreal. Explore the gorgeous architecture or take yourself to one of the hundreds of galleries and cafes.


The Word Bookstore

Address: 469, rue Milton, Montreal, QC

You're never truly alone when you're surrounded by so many characters and stories. The Word is a second-hand bookstore in town that has a wide selection of books for you to get absolutely lost in.


C'ChoColat Lounge

Address: 1255, rue Bishop, Montreal, QC

Nothing says a date quite like dessert (in my opinion). And when it comes to date night, go big or go home...


Royalmount Drive-in

Address: 8315, Chemin Royden, Mont-Royal, QC

Drive-ins are a classic date that you can totally go on by yourself. Besides, you're not even supposed to talk during the movie, anyway.


Mount Royal

One of the best things you can do for yourself is to go on a walk in nature. Luckily for us, we have the mountain for us to explore, with a forest, a lake and a lookout at the top.



Address: 1, rue Saint-Paul O., Montreal, QC

For a serious solo-date, take yourself for a night of dinner and live music. Modavie in Old Montreal offers a delicious menu of food and drinks and live jazz every night.


La Diperie

Address: See website for locations

The best part about being by yourself is that you get to make all of the decisions. And what better place to make any choice you want than at La Diperie.


Lachine Canal

The Lachine Canal is a quieter spot along the water that's perfect for some alone time. You can also see some gorgeous sunsets. Talk about romantic.


Parc Lahaie

Address: 5040, blvd. Saint-Laurent, Montreal, QC

Parc Lahaie is one of the most charming parks on the island. The lush greenery and the beautiful architecture make for one of the best spots to spend a day by yourself.


Have a great solo-date!
