With its typically French character, and renowned for its gourmet food shops, and especially fine chocolate, cheese and fresh bread, Laurier West Avenue attracts discriminating clients from near and far. Speciality boutiques teem with exclusive designer apparel, accessories, original furnishings and upscale children’s clothing and toys. Not to mention its local restaurants offering international fine dining.
At the corner of Saint-Laurent Boulevard, the old fire station still in operation houses the small Musée des pompiers de Montréal (Montréal Firefighters Museum), open on Sundays. At the west end of the Avenue, on Côte Ste-Catherine Road, a staircase provides access to Mount Royal while crossing the elegant residential neighbourhood.
