My favorite memory of Canada is the 4-day trip I took with my wife in May 2015. We flew direct from NYC to Montreal, caught the bus to our hotel, and were happy to find Copper Branch (multiple locations) just around the corner. We ate there a lot!
The next morning, we walked up to the main train station and caught the subway for some exploring. The vegan bakery Sophie Sucrée looks awesome, but it’s not as delicious as it looks.
From there, we walked around and saw some AMAZING art on buildings. Good work, Montreal!
Up to a hilltop with great views of the city, they were having some big ‘yoga in the park’ that day, and the place was packed!
Dinner was…you guessed it! Copper Branch.
We had ticket to the MLS game for the Montreal Impact that night and headed up to see the game. Their stadium is next to the old Olympic grounds. How cool is this bus stop with swings?!
Breakfast? Copper Branch. After? More exploring.
Next, we tried waiting in line for the Biodome, and the line was over 3 hours long, because it was a free admission day. We bagged it for the next day.
Instead, we went to the botanical gardens in a giant park near the river.
From here, we saw a mall with ice skating (very Canadian) and rode the subway back for dinner at…Copper Branch.
These Copper Branch dinner bowls were killer.
On our last day, guess what? The biodome is closed. Oops. Instead, we went to the insect museum. We saw some non-insects, too!
Montreal was really awesome. It’s a cool city, great vibe, lots of vegan food, and friendly people.This entry was posted in Canada, Montreal, north america, Quebec
