| Patrice Pâtissier

The holidays are fast approaching, which means a sudden influx of sugar and spice into the diets of many — especially in the form of beloved holiday baking. If eating sweets is more your forte rather than actually making them, here are our picks for top notch, ready-to-eat seasonal desserts you can procure around Montreal.

The city’s top pastry shops are producing the best of the best for the holidays and the variety of treats is almost overwhelming. You can find Bûche de Noël across town, from Little Burgundy where Patrice Pâtissier is creating a dark chocolate, caramel, and banana indulgence, to the Plateau where Crémy is conceiving of rich combinations like foie gras, milk chocolate, and cherries. There’s plenty of fruitcake to be had, as well as other holiday traditions like panettone, stollen, and King’s cake. Or maybe you’d prefer to start new traditions with holiday themed doughnuts, pies, artisanal bread, and more. Either way, let the feasting commence!
