This place started as a bakery, but soon expanded to include a dining room and quickly became the go-to lunch spot in Vieux-Montréal. The wide-ranging menu is a hit with everyone from grown-ups to toddlers. You’re greeted by a gorgeous display of baked goods, ranging from croissants and muffins to biscotti, and a warm, nature-inflected decor. A branch and twig chandelier adds a quirky touch of earthiness to the dark red room. Check the chalkboard menu to see what’s available. Must-try options include the Cuban sandwich, a Cajun chicken sandwich with guacamole, mangoes, and fresh tomato, and a deliriously good truffle mac ‘n’ cheese with caramelized onions.
