Best croissants I've ever had! My husband (who has had Parisian croissants) agreed. These were so good, we went back the next day for breakfast again (20 minutes on the Metro). The bakery is busy enough that they were still warm. Also had the Kouign Amann which was great, but a bit sweet. The quiche was good warm or cold,... More

Friendly staff who were very forgiving towards my lack of French. Everything was so fresh and tasty that we could not help but try almost everything on the menu and taking away their tarts and baguette. Prices were very reasonable and cheap compared to many other bakeries. This place is authentic and it's nice to be able to see the... More

I researched "best croissant" and got this patisserie, which indeed has the best croissant EVER, and I have eaten them in France as well as other French areas of the world. Will try the Kouign Amann next time. The people working there are very happy and friendly. The kitchen is right there and you can see them preparing the pastries.... More

Tried this amazing little bakery as I'd read about it on here. Amazing pastry and you can see them make it so you'll know how...lol. I wish. This is a TINY store front with limited choices as opposed to the larger pastry shops that reside on almost every street. Their pastry is outstanding though. There are 4 small tables for... More

While I wouldn't necessarily consider Patisserie Kouign Amann a restaurant, it does serve some pretty amazing pastry. The shop and seating area is incredibly small and the outside is so simple that it's easy to miss... but it doesn't stop a constant flow of locals and visitors from popping in for a Kouign Amann or a Croissant or a Quiche....

My husband and I were strolling down Mont-Royal checking out the shops and stopped in front of Kouign Amann simply because of the smell. We had already had a chocolate croissant at a shop down the street and I tried to say no - more than one chocolate croissant in a day? Even though we were on vacation, I was... More

I dropped by this bakery for breakfast. It is such a quaint little place that reminded me so much of Europe with it's worn out wooden plank floors and only enough room inside for 3 tiny little tables. I wanted to try so many things but settled on a regular croissant, an almond croissant, and a slice of kouign amman.... More

I first ate kouign amann in a Breton pastry shop 40+ years ago. It's now the rage in Paris: there is a chain of shops making them in various flavors, in the small cake style traditional in Brittany. Here, they make a giant tarte and cut slices. Their kouign amann is quite good, although the consistency is not quite the... More

Holy crap is all I can say...and not in a bad way. My wife and I stopped in for a quick snack. She had the special Kouign-Amann and wow wow wow! I had the Almond Croissant and was fantastic!

Its small yet impressive. It couldnt be any more French. It couldnt be any more addictive. The croissants here are the best, the quiches are absolutely delicious. I saw with a friend on a small table by the window and 2 hours later we were still not ready to leave.
