I had read about this shop in CNQ magazine and wanted to check it out on my visit to Montreal. There is a very good selection of books and a very helpful staff. I found the book that I wanted and picked up one of...More
I only wish it was larger, but the selection was fantastic. There were so many books I wanted to purchase, but couldn't carry back to the US. It was amazing, to me, the marketing differences and selection choices that are so different than what we...More
by far not the biggest used bookstore, but by far one of the most complete. This store has a wide selection from history to fiction. If you like used bookstores with a good selection come here. Plus its a wide English Selection, but remember its...More
This small (one room) store has apparently been in business in the same spot with the same owner for 42 years. It's a good used bookstore and most if not all in English. It has that wonderful dusty book smell. I purchased a novel from...More
It is heartwarming to see small used bookstores like this still thriving, especially in a college town. There are no flashy signs outside the door welcoming you. However, they are beyond friendly when you speak with them and incredibly helpful in finding both books they...More
This little bookstore sells an eclectic and intriguing range of second-hand books. It is the perfect place for a book lover to escape the Montreal bluster for an hour or two. You are likely to find a couple of lesser-known classics that have eluded you...More
I went here to find some French novels that I already had English versions of and I am happy that I succeeded in my goal. I bought two nice books for only 6 CAN (about 5 US). Even though French is the official language here...More
We were sent here by friends, Jessica and Michael, as a not to be missed bookstore and they were right. It is not to be missed.
After a wonderful walk up from Boul. De Maisonneuve through part of the McGill campus was this oasis of...More
The only advertisement or signage was a T-shirt in the window with its name when first we ventured off the McGill campus to look for it only to find it was closed. The next day, books on a table caught our attention & welcomed us...More
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that
dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
