Best Rye Bread in Montreal
I just bought a disappointing rye from Cheskie's....(too dry) & my Serbian mother-in-law needs a greeat rye fix. Any thoughts?
If your MIL likes the typical Montreal Jewish style rye with with a somewhat chewy consistency, I would suggest one of the varieties available at the Elmont Bakery at
8275 Durocher. This is the actual bakery, and the bread is always fresh and cheap. Their Danish pastries are forgettable, but their kimmel and onion bread is a favorite in our household. I believe their products are also sold at Mourelatos supermarkets. If you like the heavier Baltic style of bread, look elsewhere.
Upon chowhounders' advice, I made the trek out to Le Petit Munich:

4888, boulevard Saint-Jean, Pierrefonds, QC, H9H 4B2
very good rye bread, but a long way if you don't live on the West Island. I wish they had a "dépôt de pain" somewhere more central!
The problem with Cavallaro is getting it !! You almost have to order 24 hrs in advance. They have a regular Rye and a Rye with Kimmel both pretty good but after a couple of times of being in the area and going in to find the cupboard bare I'd just as soon go to a baker that produces bread not tease you with it.
Just tried Snowden bakery near Mtl west station.....also OK, but not the "real thing"..(moist)
