14 Great Montreal Bakeries Open Right Now

Some places have shut down their ovens for now, but there are still good places to pick up your daily bread

View as Map

While many Montreal restaurants have closed their doors temporarily due to the coronavirus outbreak, a good number of the city’s bakeries are still pulling fresh baguettes, croissants, and more from the ovens on a daily basis.

Here are more than a dozen options for beautiful bread and a few sweet treats. Take note that some of the bakeries listed here have shuffled their hours, or are not open every day (we’ve tried to include these details where possible). Some — but not all — have also introduced delivery services, although these may require advance orders. As per Quebec’s distancing rules, all bakeries are take-out only — even if meals are offered, you can’t dine in.

Lastly, note that this is not an exhaustive list of open bakeries — it’s just a selection.

La Bête A Pain (multiple locations)

Copy Link

All three locations of chef Marc-André Royal’s excellent bakery are open at the moment: Griffintown, Ahuntsic, and Laval. All of them are baking excellent bread and viennoiseries, as well as ready-to-eat options like sandwiches and soups (courtesy of a bigger kitchen, the Laval location has a larger menu that includes heat-at-home meals). Delivery is an option within a few kilometres of each bakery, and they’re all open from early morning to late afternoon daily (except Griffintown, which is closed Sundays).

Boulangerie Jarry

This formidable newcomer to Villeray mills its own flour on-site, and COVID-19 isn’t stopping that — rustic breads and pastries are both on offer, as are some ready to eat options from quiche to tourtière. Delivery is offered within two kilometres of the bakery, including most of Villeray and Parc-Extension (call in the morning to get it the same day), and only cards are accepted (no cash). Open seven days.

Le Pain dans les Voiles

One of the city’s most reputable producer of baguettes (not to mention other breads and pastry) is open as normal at present, from early morning to late afternoon Tuesday to Sunday. Delivery is available across a small sliver of Little Italy, Villeray, and Petite-Patrie — order in the morning to get it the same day (phone orders for pick-up are an option too). Card payments only — the suburban locations in Mont-St-Hilaire and St-Bruno are open too.

Automne Boulangerie

This Petite-Patrie staple offers a wide range of breads made with carefully selected flours, plus a few options like pastry and pizza. The bakery is on a reduced schedule at present: it’s open Thursday to Sunday all day long.

Joe la Croûte

The Jean-Talon Market is still open, and so is this neighbouring baker with its mix of classic breads and tasty new options like “Le Mythique”, a white bun stuffed with olives and goat cheese. It’s closed Monday but open from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. every other day.

Pâtisserie Rhubarbe

Copy Link

This Plateau bakery is firmly in the pâtisserie camp (that is, it doesn’t offer bread), with baker and owner Stéphanie Labelle crafting some of the city’s finest and most creative pastries. Some prepared dishes and wine from Comptoir Rhubarbe (which is currently closed) are on offer too. Open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday, and delivery is an option.

Pâtisserie Afroditi

Copy Link

One of the city’s oldest Greek bakeries is still churning out bread, cookies, spanakopita, and more from its Parc-Ex hub, although with reduced hours (call ahead if you’re planning to go early or late).

Boulangerie Cheskie

The challah, babka, cheese crowns, rugelach, and sprinkle cookies don’t stop coming at this iconic Mile End Jewish bakery — it’s open regular late hours until 11 p.m. (!), with its regular shabbat closure on Friday afternoons and all day Saturday.

Guillaume

Olive-studded fougasse, cheesy fesses, almond croissants, and classic breads are among the extensive offerings at this Mile End favourite. Opening hours have been slightly tweaked — it’s open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Boulangerie Les Co'pains d'Abord (multiple locations)

Copy Link

This Plateau go-to continues to pop rustic French treats and classic breads out of its ovens every day — and the locations further east on Mont-Royal and Masson (in Rosemont) remain open, too. Delivery is an option with advance orders (think at least one day in advance) — it’s best to call them if you need it.

Arte & Farina

This Italian bakery in the Village/Centre-Sud offers ciabatta, pizza, zeppoli, and more out of its Ontario Street premises — they’re open daily from mid/late-morning to the late afternoon.
