Leche desserts, Montreal

Fresh doughnuts

– chocolate mousse- enjoyed this better than the brownie because I liked the mouse filling sensation
– passion fruit – my hubby said this is the best. Had a glaze around it like “Krispy creme” and was very sweet
– strawberry and peanut butter – a definitely no-no for me

Verdict: I’m not a big fan of doughnuts but this was fresh and good. Worth a try if you are around

This is another popular cafe that I just had to check out before I leave the city..leave the city; what???!!…
Yes..I’ll be moving to Calgary in 2 weeks because I’ve found a great job opportunity there! I will miss Montreal though. It’s no doubt one of the best cities to live – for foodies!

Good thing is that I can start blogging about the food in Calgary! I’ve more or less tried out many of the great places in Montreal and now it’s perhaps time that I move on..

Here’s my verdict on this cafe, which is closely located to UQAM.

I took a sweet potato, cheese and herb scone – although I’m not a big fan of savory scones, this was quite good. It was a bit hard to taste the potato though. I could taste the cheese and salt mostly.

Mocha- it had a subtle coffee flavour. Was actually a very thin consistency (like milk). Not too sweet as other mochas.

Overall: I would only come here if I was around here. Perhaps the lattes are good (rated highly and have not tried it myself), but the mocha was also rated highly and didn’t lead up to my expectation…I think Café Myriade still tops the list of my recommended cafés. Was worth trying though!

Eggs Benedict: spinach and brie cheese was amazing although the hollandaise sauce could be better! It was topped over fresh bread rather than an english muffin. The smoked salmon Benedict was topped over a bagel; the bagel was a bit hard and was a bit hard to eat. This was served with potatoes – cubed salted roasted potatoes! It really complimented the meal

Juice: fresh but pricey! I had grapefruit. My hubby had mango and orange which was exotic

Overall: I’d definitely go again because I loved the soft toasted bread that was sitting under the eggs. And admired the spinach and brie combination as well as the potatoes and juice!
