We wandered back towards the Old Port through these wonderful neighbourhoods, looking for a few galleries and shops we had found on the internet. Three galleries we recommend visiting are: Arsenal, Darling Foundry and Parisian Laundry. Back to Vieux-Montréal and a warming snack. We ended the day having a delicious Vietnamese dinner in Chinatown.

Loved these dressers in an antique shop window.

Detail.

We passed our hotel, seeking something to warm us up. We found a gorgeous building that turned out to be an art gallery mall on rue St-Paul. It had a sweet little cafeteria where we had hot chocolate, coffee and a little pear tart.

Heading back to the hotel past Place Jacques Cartier.

Upon arriving in Montréal, we couldn’t have been more delighted with our hotel: Le St Sulpice, Hôtel Montréal, 414 Saint-Sulpice in the heart of Vieux Montréal. The lobby was gorgeous, staff friendly and helpful, our room large, quiet, clean and very well appointed. Our five nights there were perfect. Once we settled in, we headed out for dinner. The lovely woman at the front desk recommended a very nice place just around the corner called Modavie. We were seated right away, and altho we couldn’t see it, we were able to enjoy listening to the live jazz which was performing on the second floor part of the restaurant.
