“This church in the heart of old Montreal is a jewel of Quebec Heritage . Oh and also homegirl Celine Dion got married here! I would recommend you walk down the cross street St Sulpice to SSENSE cafe ( 5th floor ) for a UNIQUE coffee shop designed by renowned architect David Chipperfield or walk a little further down to hotel William gray for a meal or a classic Italian coffee shop now also running through them called Olympico. ”
