Montreal baked goods - specific questions

Hi Chowhounders,

I am quite excited to get to spend a day in Montreal next week. I get to visit relatively often and have a few questions for you. I am pretty obsessed with bread and baking, and that is often my focus of eating in Montreal.

I have had amazing croissants at Fous Desserts now, and am tempted to return for my favourite - croissant and cafe au lait for breakfast. But should I try Mamie Clafoutis instead? I used to be a Kouig Aman croissant fan, but have been disappointed lately.

I plan on stocking up on bread from Boulangerie Guillaume as I love their walnut bread, chocolate baguette, and kamut/sesame bread. Anything else I should try there?

This new Olivier Poitras shop is also intriguing as they are bringing bread in from the Au Pain des Voiles, which I have heard of but never get to visit. Are there any breads from that shop that are a must? I am generally fond of baguettes, and like whole-grain breads as well. Is the food they offer at lunch good as well? Any recommendations?

Any other amazing new bakery finds or recommendations? My kids and spouse are expecting some exceptional pains au chocolat and apple turnovers to be brought back, and possibly some little entremets.
