The best éclairs in Montreal

Montreal is known for having some of the best pastry shops in the country, so it’s no surprise it also boasts some of the best éclairs. The custard-filled choux pastries are the icing on the proverbial pâtisserie.

Fous Desserts

809, av Laurier E, Montréal, QC H2J 1G2

Fous Desserts has been around for 15 years, so they’re no strangers to critical Montreal taste buds. With a view of the kitchen from the entrance, you know they’re bakin’ up something yummy.

Patisserie De La Gare

24, av Westminster N, Montréal-Ouest, QC H4X 1Y9

Pâtisserie De La Gare serves up some of the most delicious, delectable and divine chocolate éclairs this side of the St. Laurent. Can you say, a dozen?

Les Gourmandises de Marie-Antoinette

4317 rue Ontario E, Montréal, QC H1V 1K5

Les gourmandises de Marie Antoinette uses only the best French chocolate – 80 per cent dark Valrhona chocolate – to fill and garnish their éclairs. It’s a mouthful of luxury.

De Froment et de Sève

2355, rue Beaubien E, Montréal, QC H2G 1N3

De Froment et de Sève serves up some of the best éclairs in town. A glass case filled with delectable pastries is there to tempt you upon arrival, and you’ll want to savour each one of them, but we recommend the traditional éclair au chocolat. Simple perfection.

Maison Christian Faure

355, Place Royale, Montréal, QC H2Y 2V3

Maison Christian Faure not only serves up some delicious varieties of éclairs – the traditional, the chocolat noisette, the vanilla strawberry – but they’ll even teach you how to make ‘em. The on-site pastry school offers lessons for all ages and levels. What better way to spend a few wintry nights?

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
