The Best Restaurants in Ahuntsic
Located in the north of the island of Montreal, Ahuntsic is a particularly charming part of the city. In this mostly residential neighbourhood, there are several parks where you can enjoy the beautiful weather all year long. The fact that Ahuntsic borders on the water makes it all the more appealing, since some of these green spaces overlook the Rivière des Prairies. One thing we really appreciate about the neighbourhood is how family-friendly it is, which makes it an especially convivial place to live, visit, and explore. Ahuntsic’s main commercial street, Fleury, offers many great gourmet addresses.
Whether you’re looking for a coffee, a pastry, a tasty treat or a more substantial meal with a bottle of wine, there is something for everyone. This is a great time to discover the flavours of the neighbourhood! Here is our list of gourmet addresses in Ahuntsic.
Established since 2009 on Fleury Street West, the St-Urbain restaurant is in our opinion a rare gem in Montreal where you can enjoy delicious seasonal dishes with a good glass of wine. Both a neighbourhood bistro and a destination restaurant, it always offers a remarkable taste experience. One of our favourites!
Pastry shop – $ Fabrique Caramel is a pastry shop where you can get excellent cakes and beautifully executed classic pastries. You can also place special orders in advance – for more details, see their website.
Bakery – $$ (Back on January 10). The Bête à Pain bakery has a solid reputation, and with good reason. The house makes delicious breads and pastries and also offers ready-made meals. It’s an address that we really like, as do its numerous and loyal customers.
Café/Lunch – $-$$ Le Brûloir is not only a café, but also a small coffee roaster, where you can buy freshly roasted beans to bring home. This lovely place also offers a food menu with sandwiches and pizzas, as well as some small items that pair perfectly with a coffee.
La Petite Boulangerie
Bakery/Catering – $$ La Petite Boulangerie has been located on Fleury Street for over 20 years, and is one of the best bakeries in town! Here we find good breads, excellent croissants and other delicacies. They also offer take-out meals ready to be warmed up at home! The address is also on our list of the best bakeries in Montreal!
Chocolate/confectionery – $$ Chocolaterie Bonneau is an address you can’t miss if you have a sweet tooth. However, heed our warning that you might leave with many treats! We love their chocolates, of course, but also their homemade fruit jellies. We’d eat them every day if we could!
Gourmet cuisine – $$-$$$ (Back on January 12). Les Cavistes is a well-known address for its magnificent selection of house wines. You can enjoy one at home with a delicious meal to go. Their take-out menu also includes several vegetarian options.
