Pastryism at the Mile End

Since when do we ever get such a warm and sunny day during WINTER? Yes, Montreal's winter isn't over until the end of March or April... We Montrealers never let go of any chance to go out in the sun so we can leave their Canada Goose/Moose Knuckles behind. On a bright and breezy Sunday afternoon, my roommates and I decided it was time to pay our deepest gratitude to Pâtisserie de Gascogne.

Arriving upon the store, all my eyes could see were these gorgeously made pastry. The store was littered with displays of cakes and chocolate-made goods and I WANTED THEM ALL. Oh, and Pâtisserie de Gascogne isn't just a normal bakery/pastry store. It has everything from a wide selection of meat, cheese (can't get enough of those Camembert...) and hot lunch items. It's as if they just imported a petite factory from France.

The chocolate bars are cut so small that I think that they're toys.... I should have got myself a box of it.

Fondue in clay jars It was just so hard to choose since everything was shouting "Choose me! Take me with you!" Eventually we finally made our choices and found a table to sit. Then we proceeded to praise those lovely chocolatine aux amandes and eclair so we didn't feel as guilty before we finished them off by scraping everything on the plate.

Declaring my love for the tarte aux framboises.
