This pleasant spot located in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood of Montreal’s south central is a classy retailer selling a selection of artisanal breads, pastries, local cheeses & many other items.
It is truly a local favorite mainly for all it has to offer. On the right side of the shop, they sell an immense variety of cheeses, mostly local, as well as a wide assortment of freshly baked breads made with high quality ingredients. Their bread has been quoted as “the best bread in Montreal” by the city’s newspaper. My favourites are the classic baguette and the new kamut, almond and turmeric loaf – can’t go wrong!
On the left side of the shop, there’s a counter offering sandwiches and salads as well as coffee or tea to your liking. My favorite is the grilled cheese sandwich. There is a small but lovely seating area next to the front window as well as an outside deck during the summer… or simply take it to go! On this side of the shop, you’ll also find those sweet goodies: cakes, tarts, cookies, croissants, chocolatine made with Valrhona chocolate, muffins and their famous “Cannele” made with rum and vanilla, crispy on the outside and moist on the inside.
Don’t miss a chance to peruse their shelves filled with local products such as coffee, maple syrup, jams, spices, spreads, honey and much more! Whether you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth or a craving for a salty bite, this place will have something delicious to offer. Enjoy!
