When I walk into this delightful bakery, the sweet smell of pies takes over and I feel like I’m gaining weight just by standing in the shop! Not only is the smell divine, so are their delicious treats… They specialize in desserts all made by hand, using real butter, flour, sugar and the finest local and seasonal produce. Their specialty are pies and as we say in French “tartelettes”… small pies. They have the traditional items such as blueberry, apple, lemon meringue and pecan pies as well as many others. I like their seasonal pies such as the pumpkin pie during the Thanksgiving season or the sugar pie for the Christmas holidays.
In addition, they offer a small selection of cakes as well as scones, bars, cookies, etc. One of the more popular bar is the ‘Hello Dolly’ made with chocolate, coconut and almonds. My favourite lately is the PB&J bar, layers of peanut butter and fruit jelly. There are a few tables in the store where you can sit and enjoy a sweet treat with coffee or tea (they serve that too!).
Since I am obsessed with their homemade granola, I have to visit Rustique every few months… tough life! Don’t miss out on this special gem in the heart of the trendy St-Henri neighborhood.
