After strolling around the area where I was staying, I ended up at Olive & Gourmando which was an adorable little coffee shop with freshly baked pastries and other breakfast deliciousness. Locals and tourists alike were enjoying the goodies on the menu here!
One of the main reasons I went on this trip was to get out of the daily craziness of New York so starting my days in Montreal with some nature seemed like the good plan. I accidentally missed the very obvious tourist way and ended up wandering the park for a few hours. It was beautiful in the shade and a relaxing hike before I ended up at my intended destination: the panorama point for a skyline view of Montreal.
Walking back to my hostel, I ran into a free show at Place Emilie-Gamelin that included dancing, singing, acrobats and so much more. Guess it really is the Quartier des Spectacles!
