Strudel in Montreal??

Years ago, I used to stop by Toman pastry shop on Mackay to enjoy their delicious strudel mit schlag. But alas, it closed. Since then, I've been looking for a place serving strudel. Can anybody help me?

  1. I don't have any first hand knowledge, but I remember a thread for Petit Munich in Peirrefonds which received much praise

    Don't know if they have strudel or not, maybe someone can chime in.

      yes, they have it !!
      Wawel also has Strudel, at least the one with the poppy seeds.

        Petit Munich is not far from where I live, so I'll definitely give it a try! Thanks!!

          Is it the real strudel, made with the transparent dough similar to phyllo?

            sorry, no idea, I only ate the one with poppy seeds from them so far and I think it was a different dough - in German its called "Bl├Ątterteig" = leaf dough

            Stopped in at Wawel yesterday. Besides poppy seeds they have three other fillings. I got the hazelnut. Half of a large loaf for $4.50. It was good but not outstanding. I am no expert on dough, but it definitely had no resemblance at all to any sort of phylo pastry. All in all, on the heavy side for a strudel.

        2. Boucherie Atlantique on Cote-des-Neiges corner Queen Mary has apple strudel.

            This is a great suggestion. Atlantique is amazing and I also highly recommend their house smoked salmon.

            1. Green Cafe on Viger and St Alexandre sometimes have strudel. I am not Austrian so I don't know if it's authentic but it's not as sweet as regular American strudel. It's a little pricey though (around $5).
