Unbelievable pastries. Beautiful selection, nice atmosphere, great place to stop for a morning snack. Coffee was only so-so but you are coming here for the pastry.

What a wonderful boulangerie/pâtisserie. Everything is here from yummy sandwiches to pastries (even chocolates). You sit at long tables, which are shared. So if you're looking for a quiet, romantic niche, this isn't it. But for us, it was wonderful. Loved the atmosphere, the cleanliness, brightness and energy.

We made a pilgrimage here b/c of previous reviews. The array of pastries is dazzling, and everything we tried was fresh and fantastic

We stopped in one day for breakfast and enjoyed coffee and pastries. The next morning I went in early to pick up some sandwiches and pastries for our train ride to Montreal. This place is amazing. Very kind staff, delicious food. If I lived here I would stop in every morning.

If you are in search of a cafe with pastries or breads for every desire and taste, this is your place. When you first walk in, you will confront huge glass cases filled with fancy chocolates and even fancier desserts. As you move further in, you will find a rich selection of breads, pastries and even a few sandwiches made... More

We were here twice, breakfast and lunch. There are a few others on the same street, breads/croissants/dessert/coffee, this one has be most variety. Not the best coffee but enormous selection of desserts and breads. Reasonably priced too. Get the croissants and desserts, all yummy. Not a place for dinner, most of their sandwiches are sold out by 5pm.

Got croissants, a white miche and kouign amanns. For the drive back home. Everything was excellent. The Kouign Amanns had chocolate in them, which was a bit too sweet, not sure if the plain were sold out or if they dont make plain.

We visited this wonderful bakery up the street from our Hotel, Hotel Pur, to get sandwiches for our picnic to the Montmorency Falls. We had the Genoa salami and cheese with a delicious homemade mustard and mayonnaise. We were not disappointed! We also picked up some croissants for breakfast which were buttery and melted in your mouth. We went back... More
