I am headed to Montreal at the beginning of September and wondered, are French tarts big there? I know that croissants are popular, but how about tarts? They are my favorite dessert, so don't bother recommending tarts that are just so-so.
FYI, Balthazar Bakery in NYC has raised the bar for how good a tart can be IMO. Their tarts - the filling, the crust, the presentation - just blow my mind.
