Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue restaurant terraces are open
Ste Anne de Bellevue – Summer is always a special place in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue. The on-island suburb is located at the western tip of Montreal and is the second oldest community in the West Island. Despite challenges faced by the flooding this spring, they managed to fend off the worst of it – and they have been in full gear for weeks now.
It’s a beautiful area situated between Lac des Deux-Montagnes and Lac Saint Louis – and there is so much to do and see there. People come from all over to spend a day strolling on the boardwalk along the canal – or visiting the shops and amazing restaurants like Dundees Deli & Bar, Stoolies Coffee House, Cunninghams Pub and Cape Cod along Sainte-Anne Street.
The boardwalk is adjacent to the waterway where you can watch the second busiest locks in Quebec in operation. Afterwards you can picnic or simply soak up some sun on the abundant green spaces. And there is even more to what makes Sainte-Anne’s such a popular area.
The Sainte-Anne’s Market is a weekly farmers market with over 30 merchants selling locally raised and prepared foods, many of them organic. It is located on the waterfront at the corner of Saint-Pierre and Sainte-Anne streets at Lalonde Park, with different activities all summer long.
Parking is also made easy during the summer. You can park your car for free, with no time limit, just down the road at the John Abbott College student parking lot on Lakeshore Street and board the free shuttle bus right into town.
So next time you feel like heading out for something different to do, why not head to Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue – it won’t disappoint.
