Soda Bread in Montreal

  • s

Hi there,
I've recently moved to Montreal from the UK and am having problems finding Soda Bread! I'm met by very confused faces when asking for it! So could someone please tell me a bakery that sells it?

Thank you!

  1. Hey S123, another UK-nian living in Montreal here... I myself have not seen soda bread in Montreal, so I normally make my own these days.

    In fact - I've come to enjoy making it so much that even if I could buy it, I probably wouldn't! It's super easy - I don't know if you're aware of that... But I highly recommend that you give it a try. It 's cheap, very quick to make, and it's one of those great recipes where you only get one bowl dirty. Fool proof.

    1. Hello

      try the Gryphon d'Or, 5968 Monkland; 514-485-7377, they have a bakery a couple of doors away, they have great bread, and scone and great shortbread

        I haven't seen any bread (soda bread or otherwise) at Gryphon d'or, but it's certainly worth a call. They used to make things on special order, so maybe they'd whip you up some loaves.

          we were told you have to go early for the soda bread, because it goes fast, but if you have a meal they serve you some

            Thank you for the replies! I called Gryphon d'Or and i need to speak to the owner who apparently can make it as a special order. So let's wait and see! I'll post back tomorrow after speaking to her.

            Otherwise I do enjoy baking and may actually give it a go myself!

            Thanks again for the great responses!
