Travel & Stationery - MONTRÉAL

Updated: Nov 23, 2019

Hello! Welcome to TRAVEL & STATIONERY! I’m constantly itching to travel and here’s what I look for when I've decided on a place:

- Best touristy things to do i.e Historical Sites and Beautiful Urban Locations

- Best Food and Drinks

- Book Stores, Comic book stores, Indie Bookstores, Famous bookstores and Libraries

- Indie Shops

- Last but not least STATIONERY.

Montréal has beautiful architecture, delicious food, a thriving art scene, fashion and STATIONERY!

If you’re planning on going to Québec now, let me show you some of my favorite places in Montreal and my favorite Stationery shops! Don't forget your passport!

How to get there:

From NYC at Port Authority I rode an 8 hr bus. Not the comfiest ride in the world but saves me money.

Where to stay:

I did a 2-night stay in an Airbnb in Montreal and although it was well situated, I wouldn’t recommend it. Instead, I’ll show you my dream hotel in Montreal: The William Grey Hotel and Le Petit Hôtel & Café.


St. Viateur Bagel Shop - Delicious bagels, period.

Pikolo Espresso Bar -

Some damn good coffee!

Tommy Cafe

Gorgeous cafe, yummy brekky, and good lattes.

Cafe Olimpico -

Cafe Olimpico was a real cafe experience and I appreciated chocolate being put on top of my flat white.


Note: You have to go upstairs to the cafe, you don't need an appointment just tell the sales associate or security guard you want to go up to the cafe.

SSense is VERY cool. Coffee was yummy and the atmosphere was nice. The cafe also sells some $$$$ fashion books and accessories. The cafe windows also provide a nice view of Old Montréal.

Lunch / Dinner:

Maison Publique

The restaurant has a delicious brunch menu and comfortable with a menu thats written on the wall. I loved it!

Sammi & Soupe Dumpling -

Affordable and delicious. You really can't go wrong at this awesome dumpling spot!

Hoya Restaurant -

I love Korean food and was happy to find this quaint yummy Korean Restaurant in Montréal! Also very affordable~


Nos Thes -

For a large tea menu and delicious Bubble Tea don't pass up Nos Thes!

Food Carts in Old Port -

Visiting in late May, we got to see a lot of food carts in Old Port! Definitely worth a visit for yummy food cart eating.
