Downtown donuts?

blork Apr 23, 2012 07:01 AM

Where I work, people are occasionally called upon to provide a few dozen donuts. Folks always default to Tim Horton's. It's just a matter of time before it's my turn, and I'd like to bring something different; preferably some good old fashioned donuts.

Are there any places downtown (near Guy/Ste-Catherine) that makes good donuts?

    Sometimes the Chinese bakeries make fried bread-donutty confections-so maybe Harmonie at Guy-Concordia metro or Cocobun at Alexis Nihon Plaza.

      YES! this is a good suggestion. They have three doughnuts on a stick for like $2 -delicious!

        I think the Guy-Concordia location is also called Cocobun now. Only their original Chinatown location is still called Harmonie.

          It is indeed called Cocobun. Some of the Harmonie signage is still up, though

          Not an awful lot downtown besides Wawel, but Le Gros Jambon makes their own (286, rue Notre-Dame O) and it's fairly close. If you're more towards the Mile End part of downtown, Sardine (9, rue Fairmount,) or the Plateau part of downtown La Distributrice (408, av. du Mont-Royal E.) and Samos (201 Rue Beaubien E and 4379 St Laurent) all make their own

          And if you want "a few dozen" you might want to call in advance to let them know so that you aren't disappointed when you get there.

            Appart from Wawel on St-Marc, I can't think of anywhere in that area making non-Tim Hortons donuts.
