Our favorite place ever in Montréal?!
When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised that the apartment was even better than in the pictures! Very nicely appointed bedrooms, a lovely kitchen, a large living room/TV room, and both front and back porches, the back with table and chairs and the BBQ.
The location itself is fabulous, with a Metro stop at the end of the block, a large IGA grocery about a two minute walk away, bagel bakery about three minutes, and Marché Jean-Talon about seven minutes away on foot. The area has vibrant cafes, an abundance of choices of cuisines,
and is also only blocks from some of Montréal's best shopping.
Even though we've spent a great deal of time in Montréal? over the last decade, our hosts helped us discover what was, for us, a new part of the city, the Jean-Talon Market area and Montréal?'s Little Italy. Our friendly hostess provided us with a nice map of the area, which she annotated by hand with approximate walking times and names of places she specifically recommended. In terms of dining, a pleasant find was El Rey Del Taco in the Marché; we had such a great breakfast there, we HAD to go back for dinner!
To sum up, friendly, gracious hosts, lovely apartment, fabulous location, a truly fun part of the city to be in, great dining! Highly recommended!
