A Quick Trip to Montreal (Where We Stayed, Ate & Explored!)

Sunday, February 12, 2017



Hi everyone! Thought I'd share a few photos from Dylan & my quick weekend trip to Montreal. We stayed for three nights, and really just took the time to relax, spend time together and eat goooood food (more on that later). We stayed at Omni Mont-Royal, and completely loved it. The staff was really nice and the location is really great (right in the middle of downtown), which is walking distance to all the shops, and a ton of restaurants.


We started our first full day with brunch at Le Cartet - a recommendation I found through Montreal YouTuber, MelSoldera. It was really good! Definitely would come back on our next visit here. 

 

Because we drove, Old Montreal was only a quick drive away and we spent a lot of our time there too. Thanks to middle school field trips and obligatory college weekend getaways, we both have been there several times (plus it was minus fifteen out), so we skipped out on a lot of the touristy attractions. 



No matter where you are in Old Montreal, the background is AMAZING to nailing those perfect insta shots. Even in the super cold weather! 



Cafe Tommy - Equal parts yummy and pretty!




Club Monaco - Cafe Myriade

Dylan insisted we check out the coffee shop in Club Monaco (Dominion Square) - It was really stunning and a good place to warm up in between shoots. 


McGill Campus



Even though I'll always be a Queen's girl,  I have to admit that McGill has a gorgeous campus. It also happens to be my Grandfather's alma mater, which served me a special reminder of how grateful I am that my family had decided to immigrate here, especially with what's going on in the world right now. If my grandfather had never done his studies in Canada, who knows where I'd be. Super proud to be a granddaughter of immigrants!



And finally, we had a quick brunch at Beautys before we got on the road. My friend Zoe recommended it, and it was amazing! Probably my fave meal of the trip.

Dylan and I really want to explore more places in 2017, and hopefully this is just the start! Thanks for coming along this quick trip with us!

Love Always, Rachel
