Also, spring is officially the season of zeppole, AKA the best pastries ever made. Italians in Montreal (and all over the world) nosh on these ricotta-filled balls of happiness during the feast of San Giuseppe.

They come out sometime in February (depending on the bakery), and are out all the way until March 19. So make sure to get yourself to any one of these awesome spots ASAP.

This quintessential Italian bakery, located in Montreal's Little Italy, is probably best known for their beyond amazing cannoli. However, their zeppole, released only a few times throughout the year, really take the cake for most amazing pastry around.
