Bakeries in Canada - Monteal, Quebec City, Ontario and Toronto

Hi Fresh Loafers,

Barry here from Bath, UK hoping you can help my son who is about to leave for a trip to Canada - specifically Montreal, Quebec City, Ontario and Toronto.  He is also a keen home baker and would like to search out the best bakeries in these cities whilst he is there. 

He would be delighted if someone could pass on some recommendations.  Sorry I'm a bit late asking you all as he leaves tomorrow!

I would be very happy to reciprocate with suggestions for the UK if anyone is visiting.

With kind regards

Barry

Patisserie de la gare on Westminster Ave. near Sherbrooke St.  They do sell some excellent bread there.  I've often bought their miche au levain and it is delicious.

Hard to go wrong in Montreal or quebec city.  The above list by RossS sounds like a "must see" list - I've visited Montreal a few times and gone to several of those restaurants/areas.  Have fun!

Here's a link to a site that rates restaurants/bakeries/etc in Toronto - and you can use it to search for eateries in any city in Canada.

Have fun!
