Bench & Cie @ CDN and Queen Mary
This place is great. They make and bake their own food. Almond croissant and muffins are better than anything I've had on this side of the mountain. Lunch sandwiches very fine. Prices fair. Coffee is the only weak point--it's nothing to write home about. The couple that runs the place is very pleasant. Give it a try.
this must be the old.. "where yet another CDN business use to be".... I'll have to look around next time I'm at that Pharmaprix/Metro. I just came across a small bakery further down~ where a flower shop, nurses uniform shop use to be across the JGH.
I bought their mornin special chocolatin & a coffee for $1.99 um I guess I should've tried somethin else coz the chocolatine was disappointing. They did have a basketful of Fairmont bagels sesame & poopy ones. Wasn't sure if they get em fresh every mornin.

South side of Queen Mary, just east of Côte des Neiges (between the Bank of Montreal branch on the corner and the optician's shop). Former location of Tentations Gourmet.
Guess they could be kosher but it's not the Jewish part of QM. Actually, on that stretch of QM and CDN these days I often hear more Arabic than English or French.
