The Village recently got a new café and pastry shop. The completely appropriately-named Un café en un éclair serves éclairs both sweet and savoury, and a wide assortment of squares, tarts, muffins, cupcakes, and the like. There are coffee drinks too, of course. Nightlife reports that the shop's pâtissier owners, Laurie Gamba and Bastien Carrasco, worked previously at Europea, Laurie Raphaël, Chez L’Épicier, and Mamie Clafoutis.
Status: Un café en un éclair, 1417 Amherst, (514) 439-8783, open Tuesday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
