Patisserie Kouign Amann - Montreal, QC

Au Kougin-Amann

It was our first full day in Montreal--it was also my birthday--and since the weather was pleasant and the snow was gone we had the opportunity to take a walking tour of the city.  We started in the Plateau where we were introduced to Kouign Amann.

Our first stop was to get the best croissants in Montreal--or at least that is what Martin our tour guide told us.  Before we could make our way into the cute little shop, the smell of fresh baked pastries greeted me outside.  As soon as I stepped inside I knew I was in the right place.

There were plenty of choices but Martin assured us that the Almond Croissants were the way to go.  Was he right?  Uh, yes!  The best Almond Croissants EVER!!!  They were large, warm and sheer perfection. They really do melt in your mouth--no exaggeration.

So far Montreal has been 2/2 when it comes to good eats.  They already hit a home run at Barroco from the previous evening.  Now that I have more trust in Martin's food suggestions, I am really looking forward to what other hidden gourmand gems he will introduce us to in beautiful Montreal.
