Brioche please

So during my month long European vacation I developped quite the habit of toasted brioche for break fast instead of toast. Where can I get good brioche in Mtl and would they slice it for me?

    Le Pain Doré has a squarish loaf which I am quite sure they could slice for you.

      Why would you want them to slice it for you ? It would dry out. Buy a serrated knife and slice it yourself as needed.

      BTW HOT toasted brioche with foie gras is wonderful !

      Also, sprinkle some sugar on top and caramelize it under a grill. But watch the temperature - caramel gets very hot!

        One of the only items worth buying these days at Patisserie Belge is their brioche, when they have it - I seem to recall they make them for weekends only, but I could be wrong.

          The bakery Monsieur Pinchot on Brebeuf/Marianne has very, very good brioche and also brioche with pear and chocolate. Their bread is great as well.
