1. Hof Kelsten
All conversation surrounding croissants in Montreal begins and ends with the illustrious Hof Kelsten bakery. It is a textbook croissant in every sense of the word: The quality of the golden sheen of their crisp exteriors is rivalled only by how soft and fluffy the interior is, the whole package radiating the scent of quality butter. If you don’t feel like trekking to the Plateau to try one of their croissants, not to worry! They sell wholesale to many of Montreal’s best third wave coffee shops, and they’re available at their new Time Out Market Montréal concept Hof SuCrée.
