I have two favourite boulangeries: the Passe-Partout bakery in NDG at 3857 Boulevard Décarie and Le Fromentier at 1375 Laurier St. E.
Any other favourites out there?

Lesley, I know it is slightly off topic (wrong city and country) but have you ever been to Mrs. London's in Saratoga Springs, NY?

eat2much, I have been to Saratoga a few times but not recently. Is Mrs. London's a bakery?

I think that Mrs. Londons is worth a return visit. Montreal has great stuff but this is like Paris.

This couple has been together for a while and these recipes have been worked over to perfection. This bread is great! Try their sandwiches too, for something different.

I was waiting for someone to mention Olive et Gourmando. For those who are used to sourdough bread and acidic tastes, that place is a must. In the summer they make a blue corn bread that is just fantastic(Though my favorite place is le Passe-Partout).
On my last visit to New York, i stopped by saratoga and had the pleasure of going to Mrs.London(by a complete coincidence).They really are doing great stuff there by i found it a little expensive(unless my canadian dollard was killing me).

I have a question for the plateau folks, a year ago (or two) there was this article in la presse about a couple who made the best croissant au beurre ever, apparently from their own kitchen using a simple home oven... I read that the croissant were usually all gone by 7:00h AM. Does this ring a bell? If so is that place still open ?
