Saint-Henri

Why is Saint-Henri So Popular with Foodies?

Categorised in:

With all the new restaurants popping up on rue Notre-Dame, Saint-Henri has been a happening place in recent years. Taking full advantage of this culinary diversity, residents are becoming regulars at the neighborhood bars, restaurants, and cafés. According to a recent study commissioned by Société de développement commerciale (SDC) – Les Quartiers du Canal that surveyed 401 people, rue Notre-Dame Ouest between avenue Atwater and rue de Courcelle is a more popular destination than other shopping and dining districts in Montreal (85% go there two to three times a month or more, compared to 70% who go elsewhere).

A foodie destination


“We’re proud to say that Notre-Dame is the ultimate foodie destination. What’s more, the impressive streetscape helps draw people in,” says Robert Laramée, general manager of the SDC for the Saint-Henri, Griffintown, and Little Burgundy neighborhoods. Almost 20% of respondents live elsewhere, proof of the district’s “power of attraction,” according to the study.

The study also highlighted the diversity of the local food scene. There are no fewer than 74 restaurants, bars, and cafés, featuring an immense variety of culinary influences.
Almost two-thirds of people surveyed (65%) patronize the businesses, including bars, restaurant, and cafés, on rue Notre-Dame Ouest several times a week “so they are very frequent customers,” the study points out.

Respondents were especially pleased with the quality of the bars, restaurants, and cafés (95% “satisfied” and 60% “highly satisfied”) on the neighborhood’s main drag. They also praised the service they receive from local businesses, as well as the atmosphere and ambiance. The overall picture is very encouraging for business owners, who say rising sales give them every reason to anticipate a bright future.
