Fodor's Review

This small bakery makes some of the best croissants in Montréal, and the aroma of freshly baked pastries and quiches is transporting. The eponymous Kouign Amann is a delicious, multilayered butter and sugar cake but it's the croissants that will make your visit to Montréal memorable. Owner Nicholas comes from Brittany and is passionate about his pastries. He might even suggest the proper way to eat a croissant if he sees you doing it the "wrong" way—according to him,

it tastes best if you break it in half and bite through the many layers, although some schools of thought would have you bite off an end and proceed from there. Whatever you do, don't let him see you unpeel a croissant. There are only two tables here so take your order to go and sit across the street on the steps of the church. The patisserie is open from 7 am every morning.
