I'll be on a short first time trip here June 18th-21st.

What's good? I'll be staying in Old Montreal.

Tate & Yoko?
Walk around Old Montreal  (rue Stanley) is nice. 
Montreal Science center is kinda neat.

Thanks. Def will try to stop in Tateyoko. Also, I think I'll be about 2 blocks from Rooney. Honestly I just want to eat the whole time. Lobster poutine motherfuckers!

If you want the best 'authentic' poutine in Montreal, go to La Banquise on Rachel (a few blocks east of St. Denis).

It's open 24 hours and saved me from many a hangover from all the drinking I used to do at the Tap Room (pub on Rachel, just west of La Banquise).

Since you're in the neighbourhood, you might try to get into Pied Du Cochon on Duluth.

Alex the co-owner of Rooney, is such a personable person. Every time I'm in there I try to spend some money just so that I can support his efforts. I have no doubt you'll find the shopping experience enjoyable. (Depending on the weather--things are supposed to be looking excellent over the next week--your stroll through Old Montreal will no doubt be leaving a lasting impression.) Boutique U & I has two shops in Montreal and, I believe, are our only distributers of EG, if you're interested in checking them out. They frequently have 20% off sales, as the brand doesn't appear to be particularly popular out here.

Tate + Yoko is a bit out of your way and, no offence to the gent who runs it--yet another Alex--you'll likely be a bit underwhelmed with the layout. They're making great strides forward, though.

If you're looking for a nice, homely pub-- without the raucousness that seems to be attracted to other fine establishments in the area-- with the freshest pint of Guiness our lovely city has to offer, then Hurly's is your place. You can't go wrong with Ye Old Orchard or Irish Embassy, either. 

As for dining in Old Montreal, it's not hipster cool or what one would consider fine dining, but The Keg is a decent steak house. ( Check out La Queue de Cheval on Rene-Levesque  if you're looking for something with a bit more class.)

Don't come here to shop. It sucks.
