Montreal’s Patisserie Scene

Montreal is home to many delightful surprises; affordable hotels, inspiring architecture, wonderful shops and mouthwatering bakeries.

The French certainly have their own flair when it comes to pastries. However, if you’re feeling for something sweet and a little more original, Montreal’s Little Italy may be home to your next true love, the sweet taste found solely in an Italian Bakery.

You can expect to find these Italian-inspired shops throughout Montreal, although the main strip on Jean-Talon, from Little Italy to St. Leonard is a great place to start.
