A Guide to Life in N.D.G.

  • Graphic Laura Lalonde

So you’re away from the lively, yet hectic downtown area and have opted for the greener, calmer Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. Here are some places to check out that should make your life in NDG all the better.

NDG SPORTS CENTRE
(5976 NOTRE DAME DE GRACE AVE.)

Sports centre with café and boutique. They offer a million different activities for a very low inscription fee.

LE CHEESE
(5976 MONKLAND AVE.)

A restaurant and food truck that will cater to cheese lovers’ needs.

MELK
(5612 MONKLAND AVE.)

It’s the only third-wave café in NDG. Good coffee, free WiFi, and a special brew of the day.

COSMOS
(5843 SHERBROOKE ST. W.)

The perfect (and legendary) hangover breakfast spot with greasy everything and cheap food.

CAFÉ ORANGE
(4011 DÉCARIE BLVD.)

Before you settle in for that brutal three-hour class at Loyola—or downtown—get yourself some breakfast.

CAFÉ 92º
(6703 SHERBROOKE ST. W.)

A café with a Mexican twist. Be sure to try out some of the Mexican-inspired items on their menu.

HEAD & HANDS
(5833 SHERBROOKE ST. W.)

H&H is an extremely useful clinic that offers social services for young people. Don’t be afraid to get involved with them if you have the time.

COOP LA MAISON VERTE
(5785 SHERBROOKE ST. W.)

Get coffee and other items in bulk at a discounted rate when you become a member. They’ve also got a system where you can reuse your bottles from cleaning products and fill them with eco stuff from there.

BOFINGER
(5667 SHERBROOKE ST. W.)

If the smell of BBQ is heaven to you, you’re in luck. BBQ chicken, burgers, pulled pork, chili cheese fries and more.
