Best Donut in Montreal - Cafe Sardine (Montreal, QC)

Mile End's Hidden Gem
 I always love to stumble upon gems when I travel.  While I was exploring the Mile End neighborhood which is part of the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough in Montreal; I found a trendy cafe tucked comfortably just off the Boulevard Saint Laurent.  I had been walking all morning and all I wanted was an espresso.  I did not know I was going to find the best donut EVER at Cafe Sardine!

The smoked sugar donut literally melts in your mouth.  I was pissed that I got the last one.  They also had a chocolate orange donut that was also quite delish.

The place was packed but we were able to make some space at one of the high tops and order a couple of drinks.  I had a double espresso which was PERFECT and my friend picked a loose-leaf tea from Cafe Sardine's large selection.

I can not wait for my next visit so I can get there early enough to ensure that I get a Smoked Sugar Donut--or two!


  1. This is utterly delicious. I must make it tonight..:)
