It's always a good idea to keep a list of allergen-friendly spots in the city. Nut-free bakeries in Montreal are as important as they are delicious. Whether you know someone that's allergic to nuts or you're allergic yourself, keeping tabs on delicious nut-free cafes in the city is a must.
Not surprisingly, desserts are often the hardest thing for a person with a nut allergy to find. Think about it: Most bakeries and dessert places have dishes with Nutella, almonds, pistachios and a whole list of other nutty delights.
So if you've got a birthday or special occasion coming up, or if you're like me and you don't need a reason to enjoy a cookie (or two or three) on any day of the week, here's a list of the top seven bakeries in Montreal for some worry-free treats.
