Anyone know where I can buy traditional Ukranian pastries in downtown montreal?

      Their "Sweets" division isn't much to write home about. They have pastries but they aren't exactly very good. They used to use a hungarian baker who made excellent Jofre (my favourite romanian pastry), chocolate triangles and other pastries. Now they're just so, and not very close to anything polish or ukranian I think. The other baked goods are either from Wawel or somewhere else, and not always very fresh (except for the bread).

      My Ukranian friend just recommended Wawel - the Polish place, on St. Marc. I know it's not Ukranian, but she says they have the same type of items.

        That's what I was thinking, too. They supply the plum-filled doughnuts to the Ukranian Festival every year...like truckloads of them, they're crazy popular.
