Montreal Croissant Festival
Today (May 3d) was the Montreal Croissant Festival. A magical day when bakeries all across the city (30 this year) put forward their most flaky buttery crescent shaped delicacies – for only $1 a piece! Well ok, if you want the chocolate ones, or the maple bacon – that might run you a bit extra. But for basic melt in your mouth croissants – today is the day for stocking up.
We tried out a range of almond and maple choices at Marius et Fanny, and couldn’t resist a second stop at Les Co’Pains D’Abord after meeting their friendly Croissant Girl with her basket of free samples. Brilliant marketing apparently, because they were jam packed. I needed the long walk home after five croissant in one morning.
