If you've got a sweet tooth, know that I wrote this article with you in mind. For those who have put themselves on a strict meal plan, power to ya, but keep the Montreal bakeries on this list for your next cheat day. The spots on this list are all a little scattered around the city, which was done on purpose to make sure whenever a craving hits, you'll know where to go to satisfy it.
I truly respect people that pay attention to their daily calorie intake, for whatever reason they choose to. But I've also admitted to myself that I will never be one of those people. Maybe it's because I don't like numbers, or maybe it's because I really like brownies — or potentially both those reasons.
Knowing that there are other treat lovers like me in our city, I figured I would do us all a favour and make a list of some of the best Montreal bakeries to head to whenever our sweet tooths start talking.
Remember, you can order a piece of cake, or the entire thing — don't let anyone shame ya for that one.
If you constantly find yourself daydreaming of Italian pastries, you'll be happy to know that Pasticceria Alati-Caserta, found in the heart of Montreal's Little Italy, can make all of these dreams become a reality. And by that, I mean you'll be walking into cannoli heaven.
The pastry chefs at Fous Desserts make, hands down, some of the most unique sweets I have ever laid my eyes on. The second you walk through the door, you're going to want to try every single one of them.
This bakery first opened its doors in Outremont by two bakers from France and continuously gained popularity since that day in 2008. Now, there are nine Mamie Clafoutis' across Quebec and Ontario. Believe me when I say you can taste the love that goes into making their desserts!
