If you love French pastry this is the place. Having grown up in Montreal I had remembered the lovely treats from this bakery cafe but had not been there in years. In our recent trip to Montreal, we decided to stop in for a Mille feuille and it did not disappoint. The place was packed with people, and with gorgeous... More

Located just around the corner from St. Joseph's Oratory, a must see on your visit to Montreal, this gem of a patisserie/bistro is great as a lunch stop or coffee break. Mouth watering croissants, pastries, sandwich baguettes, delectable salads and cookies make you think you have died and gone to heaven.

Coffees are wonderful, but the patisseries are the true stars. Selection is not as great as it used to be (macarons take up too much counter space). cookies are divine. Service staff were somewhat preoccupied, but the taste more than made up for that.

One of the last great cafes in the city that harkens back to the old days. Great coffee. Great sandwiches. Unique because it's not a dreadful chain cafe. Everything done with good taste, polite and semi-formal service from mostly (France) french waiters, and in a wondreful setting at the foot of The Oratory. The waiter from Nice was exceptionally good... More

It's the oldest and in my opinion the best French bakery in Montréal, if not all of North America. Everything I have had here has been out of this world. It is a wonderful gem.

From the exquisite pastries to the great French sandwiches on Baguette, definitely worth a stop-over. And you will probably want to buy a lot of items in the store.

We have been coming here for years and love it. My husband adores the eclairs and I love the lemon tarts. But truly, with the etlevated prices, you would think they would at least offer you some decent cutlery. How many times have I eaten delicious pastries with a bent, crooked fork? Maybe some cheap diner would have these but... More

Despite the fact that Duc de Lorraine is near one of the main tourist attractions of Montreal - the st. Josef oratory - it is still hidden enough that not a lot of tourists visit it. Its easily one of the top places in Montreal to buy sweets and pastries. The Staff is very polite and the place has a... More

Staying in Parc du Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
