Le P'tit Atelier

I haven't heard much talk about this lovely little place but have tried it a few times recently and highly recommend it. It's a tiny little spot at Rachel and St-Urbain, serving assorted pastries and viennoiseries. The croissants are very good, as are the brioches and the cherry pistachio tart. But my favorite was something called a "tigre" which was quite unique and delicious. It seems to be baked in a tin like a mini muffin tin, but with an indentation in the bottom. The dough is somewhere between a cookie and a cake, crispy on the outside and tender and buttery inside, flecked with chocolate. The indentation is filled with a chocolate ganache type mixture. Yum! I noticed today that there is another one, same shape but without chocolate. I think it was called a "coco rocher". Must try it next time!
