Can anyone recommend a good boulangerie for sourdough?

Hello! I was just wondering if anyone knows of a place to get a loaf/baguette of very sour sourdough bread? I'm staying in the NDG area and so far have had no luck with the bakeries I've tried, though the bread has still been delicious, just not what I think of as SOURdough. :o)

Thanks for any suggestions you might have!

  1. as far as i know there isn't any good sourdough available here. moisson, pain dore, mamie clafoutis etc have their takes but if you've been to san francisco, you will be disappointed. surprisingly, the epi dore sourdough kamut is really good. There is also a decent sour dough at Caldwells near cavendish mall.

    1. Le Pain dans les voiles in Mont-Saint-Hilaire actually does have several breads which showcase sour sourdough (e.g. their Gault).

      Since I doubt you're inclined to make the 40-odd km drive for a loaf, Crime et Gourmandise in St-Lambert is carrying product though you might want to call ahead since getting to the South Shore is still an adventure in of itself with our wonderful infrastructure.

      1. Guillaume's sourdough baguette is quite sour, or at least more so than Mamie Clafoutis' in my experience.

        1. We went to Boulangerie Guillaume this afternoon and were very impressed. We asked the gentleman serving us if he could recommend an assortment of pastries and he was kind enough to put together some wonderful choices for us to try. We came away with fig & chedder pastries, a walnut & blue cheese bun, plus some very delicious sourdough. Perfect chewy texture, great crust and nice tangy taste.

          Can't wait to try the other suggestions, much appreciated!

          1. I recently bought some sourdough bread at Cavallaro's Westmount to make croutons and they came out really nice. Corner Sherbrooke and Victoria.
