If you're looking for something fun, unique and delicious this is the place. Don't let the long lines scare you, as it's well worth the wait. Their specialty is the eclair ( obviously) as the whole top shelf of the display case is filled with many different flavours and variations. They also serve panini's and gelato. If you're looking for... More

I will be back for a pastry/dessert! I needed a croissant to keep me from being too hungry before dinner, so stopped in here. Lots of people were in line for gelato. The desserts looked great.

Great bread and sandwiches. A huge selection of tarts, cakes, and pastries. They do fabulous éclairs - I've tried most of them and they are delicious!

Fantastic breads, pastries and cakes of all shapes and sizes. Incomparable taste of croissant compared with Boîte a Pain and Paillard which are frequently quoted as the best. Run by a husband and wife who really know what they are doing! We tried olive breads, croissants, pain chocolate, raisin pastries, brioche, and the fabulous Kouign amann! well worth seeking out...

I have been there for about 15 years (since they open) and, while not living in Quebec anymore, I love going there when I can. I can easily say that you cannot find a bakery like this, even in France! This is a great bakery with a lot of different breads, pastries and other things to eat. They have a... More

It is a little far out. We drove there to get breakfast supply on our way to mount St Anne. The selection was fantastic and every one of it is divine. The chocolate eclair was heavenly. It is more expensive than other bakery but we like so much we went there twice.

We found this place despite many closed streets, one-way streets and detours. It was well worth the effort. On our first visit we picked up sandwiches, baguettes and pastry. The displays are beautiful, you'll have to take your time deciding what you'll have. We returned the next day for breakfast, a bowl of cafe au lait, almond, chocolate and caramel,... More

We looked for some bread and Croissants for our morning breakfast and Le Croquembouche was around the corner from the airbnb we were staying at. The place was very nice and had lots of fresh breads and sweets. Our french is minimal but the staff there was super nice to us and even taught us how to ask for it... More

This a wonderful, friendly neighborhood spot to stop for lunch and to pick up some pastry or bread to go! The food looks and tastes great -- with lots of choices.
