Best Restaurants in Pointe-Saint-Charles: our suggestions

Pointe-Saint-Charles has blossomed from a historically hardworking industrial neighbourhood into an up and coming cultural corner of Montreal – and the relocation of C2 Montréal 2019 to the area is case and point.  Most importantly, it has become a neighbourhood with an impressive culinary scene, which our most important criteria! For everyone attending C2 Montréal, it is crucial to be aware of the best gourmet addresses in the neighbourhood to replenish.

Considering the Lachine Canal, impressive amount of greenery, and the close proximity to Atwater Market, it makes sense that Pointe-Saint-Charles is flourishing. This new chapter of Pointe-Saint-Charles began in 2002, when the Lachine Canal reopened as a designated tourist space. However, the area has since evolved beyond the Canal and parks, and is now a community that fosters creativity and commerce!

A reflection of the neighbourhood’s evolving personality, our partners at C2 Montréal have relocated to Pointe-Saint-Charles. The C2 Montréal 2019 conference will host over 7000 creative minds and entrepreneurs from all over the world. The theme of the 2019 event is Tomorrow, which will encourage participants to take action through their businesses in order to create a greener, safer and more creative future. After spending a full day in a C2 creative business conference, you may be in need of some replenishing. We wanted to share a list of our favourite gourmet addresses in Pointe-Saint-Charles, and hopefully convince you to venture out into the many other offerings of the neighbourhood!
