Chez Mère-Grand, 800 Berri Street

The charm of its old-fashioned stone, a very classy sign with a clean design, and a flowery, attention-drawing door work together to form a very attractive location! Come inside to say hello to the owners, they’re very easy to talk to.

Tommy, 200 Notre-Dame Street West and 151 Saint-Paul Street West

A stop for a coffee and selfie in one of the two Tommy locations will make your followers envious! The yesteryear charm of its exterior is just begging for you to pose, and the store’s interior is just as exciting. Its high ceiling, airy brightness, and multitude of plants are worth a few snaps if you’re ever near the Notre-Dame address.

Crew Collective Café, 360 Saint-Jacques Street

This majestic third wave café is definitely worth a photo detour! You’ll need to enter to experience absolutely all the beauty this place has to offer. It’s no surprise that a film production decided to shoot a few scenes here!

Boutique Bonjour Montréal and Mlle Catherine Café + Gelato, 421 Place Jacques-Cartier and 423 Place Jacques-Cartier

A neighbouring boutique and creamery, their windows are always delightfully decorated and set up, and most of all, we love the yellow bike on display in front of their entry doors. Enjoy some wonderful ice cream and immortalize this small moment of sweetness in a setting that sums up everything good about this season’s good weather.

When you share your photos of Old Montreal, its streets, and its businesses, make sure to point out the establishments and tag Old Montreal in them; we always love seeing your pretty photography. And while you’re at it, chat a bit with the business owners – the Gens du Vieux are welcoming and great to talk to.

This spring, #explorelevieux
