Montreal’s dessert Guru has a name (and a take-away counter!). I promise you: Chef Patrice Demers’ incredible talent will rock your taste buds and make you want to start every meal with dessert. We’ve known him for many years now as he has worked in several restaurants, serving nothing but the very best dessert I have ever had the chance to taste.
Since February 2014, Patrice Demers can be spotted in his new restaurant called Patrice Pâtissier. They serve lunch through the week, mostly soups, salads and sandwiches. However, it’s their take-away counter that amazes me every time I stop by. It displays a great number of perfectly executed classic sweets and desserts such as brioches, Bordeaux cannelés, Breton Kouign-ammans, and tiny pound cakes. The team also offers some more surprising and seasonal options, such as a coffee and chocolate crémeux, gorgeous tartelettes, and a maple-pecan-apple éclair that is to die for. Plus, these days, you can even buy some of their hot chocolate mix to enjoy back home. Need I say more? Hands down, Patrice Pâtissier is the kind of treat you can never get enough of!
