I don't know if these are caricatures of famous people or just random faces.
We also planned a brief meet-up with fellow blogger Tornwordo and his husband Serge for Saturday evening. It was great to meet them after reading about them for several years. But the rest was just wandering, either on foot or in the car.
On the rue Saint-Catherine. It's closed to cars in the summer in The Village. Must be great!
We both enjoyed Montréal a great deal and would love to go back. We're already talking about how it would be fun to find an vacation apartment rental for a week one of these years and spend some more time exploring the city. The list of things to do "one of these years" never seems to get shorter.

On Sunday morning we checked out of the hotel and set off to find a bagel place for breakfast. Our friends told us about two famous places: St.-Viateur and Fairmount up near a traditionally Jewish neighborhood. We found them, but they're just bakeries with take out, so we didn't stop in. We also learned that St.-Viateur has a bagel café on Avenue du Mont-Royal in the Plateau neighborhood that we found without too much trouble and enjoyed breakfast bagels and coffee.
St.-Viateur bagel shop and café. I had smoked salmon and cream cheese. Delicious!
After that we said salut! to Montréal and headed toward Burlington, Vermont.
