Another Mile-end gem, Boulangerie Guillaume bakes traditional French baguette alongside a variety of artisanal breads and pastries. Amongst the myriad of baked goods were the usual focaccias, croissants, and a very appealing white chocolate brioche. We gravitated towards their kamut hazelnut and fig loaf ($4.50), which I recently used for French toast, and their pain au fromage with nuggets of figs hidden inside ($2). The baguette ficelle ($1.75), delicious and fresh on the first day with a crackly crust dorée, held surprisingly well throughout the weekend after being stored in our hotel room! That’s a sign of superior bread, right?
They also serve salads and sandwiches for lunch. We popped over on our last day in Montreal to grab a ham and cheese sandwich for the bus ride.
The cheddar and fig bread was très bon.
