Ind. pastries : $2,75 à $6
Patrice Pâtissier is a boutique pastry shop that opened its doors in February 2014. With around 30 seats and often stretching to 40 when needed. Patrice Pâttisier is a paradise for anyone with a sweet tooth because it offers some of the best pastries in town.
Patrice Demers is one of the best pastry chefs we know, certainly in Montreal. You may have seen him at some of Montreal’s top restaurants, including the trendy Les Chèvres, Laloux and Les 400 Coups. This pastry chef has published three books and since 2010 has been running Les Desserts de Patrice on Canal Vie. In February 2014, Patrice fulfilled his dream by opening Patrice Pâtissier as co-owner. The place is a unique setting where, amongst other things, his delicious creations can be purchased. Working with him is Marie-Josée Beaudoin, the director of operations and sommelier for the establishment – her excellent work is evident at several Montreal establishments, including Chez l’Épicier, Laloux and Les 400 Coups. Jean-François Archambault, co-owner and founder of La Table des Chefs, is responsible for sales and marketing, and is also a member of the gourmet duo. The final member of their team is Geneviève Lafitte, CFO and Partner. “Even if she ‘crunches’ the figures, she still prefers Patrice’s desserts!”
At Patrice Pâtissier, discover shelves of delicacies: Kouign Amann, rolled brioches, canelés, scones, financiers, brownies, shortbread and cookies – pastries created with remarkable techniques, balanced tastes and textures, $2.75-6 per piece. There are also cakes to impress your audience for every occasion: chocolate and coffee St. Henri, tarts with seasonal fruit, éclairs, Black Forest cake or small cream pots, cream choux, or larger size desserts. Also available are a variety of ingredients for baking at home. And for the weekend, cakes for 4-6 people can be ordered during the week with 48 hours notice.
The shop works with many local businesses; Patrice Pâtissier also offers lunch from Tuesday to Saturday, with a selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and tartars, all at affordable prices. The menu changes quite often, but the choices are simple and well prepared. They also offer an exquisite Sunday Brunch with original and tasty options, and the high volume of customers underscores the popularity of the place. Note that some of the most popular desserts can be enjoyed at any time of the day – think of the cream, caramel and chocolate pots, the green apple dessert and other options (!) On Saturdays, the restaurant has recently started offering a hybrid between brunch and lunch.
Patrice Pâtissier is ultimately a place where the sharing of knowledge is important: wine tasting workshops led by sommelière Marie-Josée Beaudoin are available. Private lessons for two people or pastry courses for 12 are also given. These include a demonstration, recipes and of course the chance to have a good time. The concept is meant to be demonstrative for the benefit of the general public. For more information, contact: email@example.com
Each visit here is synonymous with decadence and gourmet pleasure to share with those you love. Thank you, Patrice.
