Maison Christian Faure : French delicacies in Montreal
I’m always very excited when I find out that a new chef has settled in Montreal. If you have a weakness for the sweeter things in life, you can’t afford to miss this patisserie. Having just arrived from France, pastry chef Christian Faure chose to unpack his measuring cups on charming Place Royale, just a few steps from Pointe-à-Callière Museum.
The moment you step inside, you’ll be greeted by displays of luscious desserts, golden croissants, enticing brioches, and other tempting delicacies. You can take these treats to go or take a seat and let yourself be tempted by a menu that’s sure to delight. Choose between a choux pastry filled with lobster and crab, a club sandwich with Angus beef tartare, a salmon and leek quiche, pain perdu with caramel sauce, or a chocolate and hazelnut eclair… everything is fresh, delicious, and so beautiful.
I’m also told that the weekend brunch, for $18, is mind-blowing. And if you’ve always dreamed of learning a few pastry tricks, what better teacher than a master of his craft? Christian Faure’s pastry school offers Saturday classes for serious amateurs, as well as a professional program. Don’t hesitate to discover this mouth-watering pastry shop.
