La Fabrique Arhoma is first and foremost a bakery, but it is so much more than that. Between the breads and the pastries, you'll find cheeses, jams, and cold cuts. Basically, one visit and you leave with heightened bourgeoise tendencies. Get the bread with pecans, cranberries, and maple. It's the perfect mix of sweet and crunchy. But if its out, have no fear. This bakery is in such high demand, it supplies a few local stores.
This jack of all trades is a pastry shop, wine bar, and dessert bar AND they also host cooking classes if all the good food and drink gets you in the mood to try it yourself.
Whether you’re looking for a sweet ending to your day, a grand dessert to bring to your friend’s party, or just a sinful breakfast, you can’t go wrong with this Plateau bakery.
When you walk into Pâtisserie Au Kouign Amann, you need to focus. Don't get distracted by the quiche (it's delicious). Do not divert your path towards the croissants (they're transformative). Head right to the pizza-sized Kouign Amann, which translates literally into, "butter cake." If the words, "butter cake" aren't selling you, we think you're in the wrong place.
This Ville-Marie spot features cafe fare in the morning, bistro/takeout at lunch, and 5 à 7 snacks with natural wines and a gorgeous terrasse.
It's all about the bread at Joe La Croute. Every day it posts its bread offerings on its website, and there is even a category for, "Ephemeral Bread." What does that mean? Go and find out. If it is so ephemeral that there is no more left, get the fougasse. It's a delicious, olive-filled, enormous, pretzel.
Let us be clear. This is no average bakery. This is a chocolate bakery. Chocolate is its thing. It is the brain child of chocolatier Franck Dury-Pavet, and his, "passion for the thousand and one flavors of cocoa." We aren't sure what those flavors are, so you'll have to visit 1,001 times and report back to us. And if you're not in the mood for chocolate (shame on you), the second-best option is a rich, buttery croissant.
Prepare for a taste of the Old World at Boulangerie Cheskie. There is nothing sexy or modern about this little bakery, but don’t be fooled by the rickety exterior; the rugelach here is the Jewish take on the chocolate croissant, and there is nothing simple about the interwoven layers of pastry and sweet cocoa and sugar mixture that make up this delicious treat. Stopping at one is impossible, so don’t even try -- and grab a black & white cookie to go.
Located in St. Henri, Satay Brothers has been offering delectable Singaporean fare (that's vibrant, fragrant, and cheap) since 1983.
The co-founders of this bakery have created a carb-filled arsenal of awesome through tireless experimentation and a commitment to quality ingredients. The best part is in the endless expanse of sweet that is Little Italy, Le Pain Dans Les Voiles offers a little savory as well, with sandwiches and pizzas. But you can get dessert after. Or before. We're not judging.
La Cornetteria is one of the many spots to have jumped on the Cronut bandwagon. And to its credit, it does that hybrid pastry well. But when in Rome (Little Italy), do as the Romans do. The cannoli is this bakery's shining star. But be warned: snacking will be messy. This heavenly cream-filled cone will break on first bite, and you will be licking the crumbs off the table.
You know that thing where you're a vegan and you're friends are all eating cupcakes or ice cream and you have nothing to offer but half-hearted buzz words like, "health," "the environment," and, "animal rights," when really you are questioning you're whole lifestyle decision because damn that cake looks good? You know? That thing? Well take your carnivorous friends to Sophie Sucrée, get the carrot cake, and you may leave with a few extra vegans in your midst.
