    Hi Kevin,

    For art and design you'll love Montréal! It is a designated city of design by UNESCO so you'll have a great time. Be sure to explore the underground city which is also the world's largest public art gallery! Around Old Montreal and the convention centre there are some wonderful sights. Be sure to visit st-Denis street for some unique Montreal buildings.

    The Montreal fine arts museum is a wonderful place especially in the new wing.

    Montreal is a food Mecca, so most restaurants will have lots of vegetarian options, especially the Indian, Lebanese and Mediterranean restaurants. If you are looking for something unique try Crudessence a restaurant on Rachel street that is quite well reputed for raw/vegan only dining. You also have Aux Vivresa restaurant on Saint-Laurent a great spot for some unique vegetrian dining. Lastly there is ChuChai, can't say I loved it but a greatly loved option from my vegeie-loving friends. Visit the Tourism Montreal blog for some pretty good suggestions.

    You'll love Montreal, it is a love affair that never really ends...

    You have to hang out in the Avenue du Mont-Royal and also in the Parc du Mont-Royal Lookout, up to the top, beautiful view of Montreal. Old Montreal is very nice also.....lots of thing to see in Montreal. You have to taste the "poutine" in La Banquise. You will find resto and terrasse everywhere in Montreal.

    The Montreal Museum Of Fine Art is fantastic and free (some of the visiting exhibits are extra) and the museum is on both sides of the street. There is an underground tunnel connecting both buildings. I highly recommend it for an afternoon.

    As far as food goes, I love their markets! Jean-Talon Market and Marché Atwater are both great experiences. My parents took me there as a child and now when I bring friends up to visit Montreal, I always bring people! Première Moisson is an authentic French bakery at both markets. Their chocolate almond croissants are to die for!!

    Everything is walking distance if you want to enjoy cool stuff. If you don't visit Schwartz's on St Laurent then you are missing out: http://www.schwartzsdeli.com/

    Walk up the Mont Royal to get the best view of the city's architecture (in aggregate). Pop into a performance at the Shulich School of Music McGill University of Arcade Fire fame.

    Le Plateau area offers a true Quebecois experience. Actually, go anywhere that is not in the Golden Square Mile in order to experience le awesomeness that is French-Canadian culture.

    Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal Museum Of Fine Art and maybe Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal.

    Montreal is a great food town and veg options exist but it's not what I'd go there for.I will recommend L'actuel on Peel.
