We have been visiting Montreal nearly all of our lives. Our dad's family is all in this fabulous city. We were just up celebrating out grandmother's 90th birthday. As always we ventured around the city to a bunch of wonderful spots. See below!
Our 1st stop is usually Marche Jean-Talon. This is a wonderful out door market (open in seasonally). Beautiful produce is on full display. There isn't too much organic sadly but you can find a few items. It will get your creative cooking ideas going!
While at Jean-Talon Market you must have a crepe at Creperie du Marche. These Crepes are amazing. They are all gluten free, made with buckwheat flour and filled with amazing combinations straight from the Jean-Talon market which surrounds it. Sweet, savory, vegan, or vegetarian they have all the option! (And meat too)
We love Bioterre, a great health food store in the Plateau area of the city. They have a wonderful selection of organic and healthy food. Its a great place to pickup supplies for your stay in Montreal. The staff is super friendly and welcoming as well.
We love Rustique and it happens to be super toddler friendly! The coffees and teas and great but the baked goods are beyond!! We smelled this place before we saw in. There was a group of 7 toddlers playing in the front of the restaurant and everyone seemed happy as can be about it. They all were drinking hot chocolates and debating Frozen the Disney movie. It was such a nice relaxed environment as well as incredibly delicious!
