Meet the owner

Le Paltoquet is a pastry and coffee shop, as well as a breakfast and brunch restaurant. Owner Laurent Bouteraon was one of its founders in 1990 and, to this day, he is in charge. His inspiration and influence come from his country of origin ― France ― where he was earning money for making pastries before he even turned 18.

“It was an occupation I knew I could do well with, and pursue in any country,” Laurent explains, and it’s a decision that has brought him success and satisfaction. While he runs a commercial establishment, that doesn’t prevent him from seeing a guest in every customer he serves and treating them with the sense of respect and hospitality that goes with that outlook.

“My goal is to deliver high quality at a reasonable price,” Laurent says, adding that his clientele is varied, and includes wealthy residents of upper Outremont as well as modest folks.

The French name “paltoquet” means “hoity-toity” and was chosen to poke fun at the pretension typically associated with French bakeries, while bringing people from all backgrounds together around the universally loved croissant.

    C'est vrai qu'on retrouve de bonnes choses au Paltoquet mais le prix de la chocolatine mini ... un peu trop dispendieux pour la quantité ...

    Wow, le Paltoquet est vraiment un petit café super pour expérimenter un petit déjeuner ou un café la française... Le café au lait, les oeufs paltoquet, et même les simples oeufs brouillés sont un délice... Leur croissants aux amandes sont tout simplement délectables, et vraiment uniques à Montréal. J'adore....
