As surrounding neighborhoods such as the Mile End become increasingly gentrified, Mile-Ex is considered to be an up-and-coming district in Montreal. Attracting mainly creatives and young professionals, this former industrial area is attracting new cafés, restaurants, bars, and art-filled spaces that occupy old factories and garages. Here are some of the best cafés to visit in this unusual neighborhood.
A neighborhood favorite, Café District sits in Mile-End, Mile-Ex, and Rosemont, as well as in the Old Port. You can enjoy a light lunch with your cappuccino as you work on an assignment or chat with friends, and the service is always warm and friendly.
