Please note that the dining room is currently closed.

La Bête à Pain Ahuntsic is the first location of the Bête à Pain family (with addresses now in Griffintown and Laval) and is one of Montreal’s best bakeries. Established on Fleury Street West, the excellent bakery is also a café, counter and restaurant.

Nestled in the heart of Ahuntsic, the bakery-restaurant brings people together in a convivial atmosphere, far from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Since its opening, the charming address has been run by a dynamic trio: Marc-André Royal, Chantal Gervais and Annick Dufresne.

Despite its simplicity, the address has a certain je-ne-sais-quoi that makes you want to extend your stay; a thought that is obviously common since the space is constantly full! The place is also very attentive to its customers; in fact, from morning to night, there is something to refresh yourself, to snack on, and to take-out. La Bête à Pain is a place that brings the neighbourhood together; whether you come for a coffee, to study, or to dine with good company, you’ll be at ease here.

The space is divided into two sections; the first is dedicated to the bakery, while the main room serves as a casual restaurant with table service. The house also offers a nice selection of products to take-out: charcuterie, cheese, sweets, wine from local producers, and other artisanal products.

In the kitchen, Zach Chase (who has worked at Joe Beef and Olive et Gourmando) prepares a daily menu that changes frequently. At lunch, he offers delicious revisited classics including a beef tartare, a chicken liver mousse tartine, and a burger served on a milk bun. For breakfast and brunch, they offer delicious and hearty plates to satisfy the hungriest.

In the bakery, the team masters the art of fresh bread and pastries; which also happen to be some of the best in the city! The lemon meringue pie and the pecan maple cake are very popular, and are fixtures on an otherwise evolving menu.

La Bête à Pain Fleury is a true gem where you can spend the whole day lingering about. We love the neighbourhood address for its convivial character, its superb delicacies, and of course its generous and warm welcome!
