La Bête à pain bakery is a popular destination for the residents of Ahuntsic, although many of its clientele also come from outside the neighbourhood. While it started as a small business, the bakery has grown and is part of the revitalization of Fleury Street West.

Marc-André Royal, with his wife Annick Dufresne and friend Chantal Gervais, opened the bakery in 2008 after the success of their first business, Restaurant St-Urbain, located across the street. The trio grew up in Ahuntsic and it was that sense of belonging that motivated them to invest in the area. Even to this day, Annick's parents live on the corner of the street and Marc-André's live directly opposite, on the same street as La Bête à pain.

As a well-known chef in the city, Marc-André attracts a clientele that includes visitors from outside the neighbourhood. "People travel for the quality of the products," says Annick. "The festivals organized in the neighbourhood also attract many people."

    Saucisses qui manquaient de cuisson et beaucoup trop salées. Soupe très ordinaire et brioche qui semblait avoir été fait il y a quelques jours Personnel très courtois

    La bête à pain is located at 114 Fleury Street West, a few addresses down from its big brother Restaurant Le St-Urbain. This caterer and bakery offers take-home dishes whose quality is comparable to those of St-Urbain.

    Sweet Isabelle's sugary delights in Montreal

    This weird creature owned by Marc-André Royal (chef of the St-Urbain) is a mixture of many things – licensed restaurant, organic bakery, pastry shop, and catering business. Their decadent "six-course" Sunday brunch is worth the drive! I trip on their canelés and French bread... and get lost in the happiness. And when I have the pleasure of bumping into Annick, the person who shares this extraordinary adventure with Marc-André, my day is made. Her jovial and energetic attitude inspires me!
