Located on Saint Joseph E, this is a local favourite where tourists can feel the essence of a a French speaking nation.

 

Au Pain Grüel

If you walk over to Saint-Jean Baptiste neighbourhood in search of the Chocolate factory, crepes and an old-school European General store, you must pop into Au Pain Gruel. It’s not fancy, but the bread is loved by locals – hipster feel and great nearby coffee too!
