The best little bakery you've never heard of...

OK guys & gals I work in the bakery industry & I visit & know many of the bakeries in Western Canada.

I just have to let you know about a place in Canmore called The Gourmet Croissant - just in front of the hospital on the Bow Valley Trail. It's a bit hidden away but the baker there, a Portuguese chap makes by my reckoning the best pastries I have come across on my travels.

He is a real artisan & uses quality ingredients in making the croissants & danish pastries that he excels in. His fresh baked bread is good too - but as I say it's the authentic European pastries that stand out - if you head through Canmore seek him out & indulge in these marvels. It's an otherwise bland bakery/cafe & the coffee is nothing to write home about but the pastries.......

Oh man!
