Montmartre Bakery - What's good there?

Mainly I'm just looking for a decent loaf of bread. Same problem as I had downtown. However, if they have fun, tasty stuff who am I to say no?

    Quite a selection I like:
    (1) German buns 'laugen brot' and pretzel. I found them the closest to the German bakery.
    (2) Croissants, keep well in fridge. I warm them in very low heat oven to crisp them.
    (3) During winter months they sell 'bienenstich' - real cream & almond squares
    (4) Apple strudel. Not oversweetened and the apples are not mush.
    (5) Their small dinner rolls are also crisp outside soft inside.

    I live in Finch/DonMills and never went downtown for bread & groceries so can't compare to those bakeries discussed in other threads.

        Did you get a chance to buy their plain white sliced bread? My family has been buying it for about 30 years. The best!

          Beau loves the plain white sliced. Me, I'm addicted to the Italian bread. It's all I can do to not rip chunks off and eat it on the way home. Spectacular. Fresh sliced with a little butter it's as mouth-filling as I've experienced in this town. Montmartre is definitely THE Chow find of Scarborough.

      Apple Strudel! Cherry and Blueberry wasn't too bad either!

        A big Me Too on the croissants. I start my grocery shopping there having skipped breakfast so I can indulge. Love the croissants.
