Mile End, the last Mile, is a small neighborhood between Outremont, Le Plateau, Rosemont and Little Italy. The main commercial streets are parts of St-Viateur, Fairmount, Bernard, Villeneuve, Parc Ave & St-Laurent. It has bagel shops (2 on Fairmount and 2 on St-Viateur), plenty of little restaurants and shops and is best know for its lively Italian coffee shops.

Get in[edit]

The nearest metro station (situated outside the Mile-End) is Laurier (orange line), and is about 15 minutes walk. Alternatively, take the 80 bus from metro stations Place-des-Arts (green line) or Du Parc (blue line).

Bagels[edit]

The Mile-End is home to the two most notorious bagel shops of Montreal : St-Viateur Bagel and Fairmount Bagel. These shops do not offer seating, but you can sit in a nearby park to eat your bagels while they are hot. For the complete experience, do a picnic with fresh bagels, smoked salmon and cream cheese.

  • St-Viateur Bagel, 263 St. Viateur West, (514) 276-8044, [2]. 24/7.  edit
  • Fairmount Bagel, 74 Fairmount West, [3]. 24/7.  edit

Specialized food stores[edit]

The Mile-End is home to many fine food shops and organic markets, including :

  • Latina, 185 St-Viateur West, (514) 273-6561, [4]. Fine food shops boasting an excellent olive bar and many european importations. It is one of the rare places to buy truffles in Montreal.  edit


Restaurants[edit]

  • Le Cagibi, (St-Laurent corner St-Viateur), [5]. A nice vegetarian café and bistro, Le Cagibi is also a hot spot of the emerging experimental music scene with live shows most nights of the week.  edit
  • La Poule, (Bernard between Waverly and de l'Esplanade). open till 10pm. One of the best Portuguese-style chicken restaurants in the entire city (and there are quite a few.) It's owned by an Italian woman and the head chef is a Moroccan man, but no matter. Their chicken is grilled, not rotisserie. Served with piri-piri hot sauce, choice of salads and a huge pile of fresh fries. Lots of other things on the menu but don't bother. It's all about la poule (the chicken).  edit
  • Arahova, (On St-Viateur near du Parc). A greek restaurant specialized souvlaki and doner. A chain, and not a great one at that.  edit
  • Plus que Parfait, 60 rue Fairmount ouest. Gelato  edit
  • Café Olympico. Coffee shop.  edit
  • Club Social, (514) 272-0667. Coffee shop  edit

Food is not necessarily of the quality one would expect for the price, however. $4 draft beer ($5.50 for pint), 5 to 8 prices on tap.  edit
