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

    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.

        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).
