Jam Donuts

Does anyone know where I can buy jam donuts in Montreal. Somewhere near the plateau or le petite patrie would be ideal, but I'm willing to travel if necessary. The attached picture is a fairly accurate representation of the kind of jam donut I'm looking for.

      I'm not intimately familiar with their menu, but people in work often bring in TH donuts, and I've never seen one that remotely resembles the picture above. Even if they do make them, I'm sceptical about their quality

        Hey, what can I say...they do make them though.

          Haha, was gonna mention that too but afraid to lose any chow cred. But Timmie's makes as good donuts as anyone, imo. And they invented my faves, the maple and maple cream!

          Have you tried Wawel's Polish-style filled doughnuts (aka paczki)? Not sure they have any red-berry varieties, but they have apricot & prune and they're all mighty delicious. Numerous locations across town.

            Second Wawel. Go early in the day for the prune-filled ones as they tend to sell out early, for good reason!

              YES! Those polish ones are good, filled with plum/ prune jam.

                Wawel's are terrific (I prefer the apricot!) however, they are a bit on the heavy side. And they are glazed not sugared. Not exactly like Fred's picture. TH makes jelly donuts but I'm not a big Timmy fan.

                  The prune ones are glazed but the apricot and cream ones have powdered sugar, I believe.

        UPDATE: Sorry, I should have been more precise in my original post, but I'm specifically looking for a strawberry jam filled donut. If that's not available, another kind of red berry jam filling (e.g. raspberry) would be acceptable.
