Bakeries, pastry shops and inexpensive good food

Hi Montreal Chowhounders,

I am heading to Montreal with my family for two days this long weekend. We love eating in Montreal. We have two kids, so fancy sit-down meals are generally not a great idea, and we don't want to spend a fortune either. I tend to do a lot of research before our Montreal trips, so I've read a fair bit on Chowhound.

We would like to try really good new bakeries for excellent bread. I already love Guillaume and have tried Mamie Clafoutis, Le Fromentier, and others. I want to try le Pain dans les Voiles this time. Anything else? I especially love good whole grain breads with nice sour levain/sourdough starters.

Great viennoiseries: I love the croissants at Fous Desserts, have had some good pastries at Mamie Clafoutis, and used to love le Kouign Aman but have been disappointed lately. I will try to get to Christian Faure, but welcome all suggestions.

Are there any good grilled fish sandwiches in Montreal? Simple, affordable? Kind of like getting a merguez or lamb sandwich at the Jean Talon Market, but fish instead?

We love Aux Vivres, and would like to discover other vegan restos or cafes that have flavourful and affordable food. We're not vegan, but like to have a vegan meal here and there.

Good, inexpensive sushi near Jean-Talon market? It doesn't have to be right next door, but in a two kilometer radius or so.

Are there any inexpensive and good lunch places downtown that would be open on Good Friday and Saturday?

Thanks in advance,


Mamie Clafoutis,
