This artisanal hipster boulangerie is famous for its array of French/Jewish pastries, including an acclaimed (and often sold-out) panettone during the holiday season. Owner-chef Jeffrey Finkelstein, whose resume is full of such renowned spots as Per Se, Noma and the French Laundry, also devised a short but delectable brunch menu (think challah French toast). Most of the seating is at a long communal table and bar stools, so it’s not a spot where you linger for hours, but the incredible quality of the pastries and breaded items has accrued a loyal following. During the warmer months, pick up something here and take the short stroll into Parc Mont Royal down the street.
