Mtl's best cupcakes

zeim1 Oct 28, 2013 09:42 AM

Alright so there's been some good contenders as of late and noticed a few bakeries with no physical presence but I'm looking for the top 3 in and around MTL.

I've tried Les Glaceurs, Deliche, Dolce et Gateau, Temptation, etc. and so far I'm leaning towards Les Glaceurs mainly but I'm sure there's other good contenders...

So go ahead and suggest what are the current top bakeries atm making the best cupcakes in town!

    Cocoa Locale. Only has 3 kinds, but all three are amazing.

      Agreed. The chocolate-chai are my fave.

      I really don't like Les Glaceurs... I've tried a few flavors over time and they mostly all taste sugar and nothing else. The only thing that I like from them is the red velvet.

      My favorite is definitely D Liche.

        I should have specified that it was Red Velvet i was after and found it was the best at Les Glaceurs... The red velvet at D has a nice cake but prefer with cream cheese rather then their butter cream...

        Anyone tried the Red Velvet at Yuki?

        so no other suggestions? I've also been hearing of L'échoppe gourmande in Longueuil... thoughts?

          for me it's Gateaulogie on Van Horne, hands down ! I love their dark chocolate cupcake frosted in Vanilla.

            Coco locale's are the best in my opinion.

              I live on the west island and I LOVE the red velvet from Baking Sweet on sources. The Provigo Le Marche on st Charles also makes unbeatable cupcakes ... But I have yet to try their red velvet.

                Just a quick clarification - Baking sweet is on St. John's.

                I agree they are good, but I slightly prefer the one in Pointe-Claire village near Gigi pizza - the names escapes me at the moment.

                Better texture and flavour IMO, but only by a small margin!

                  Oops! You're right! Haha. The one in pointe Claire is crazy about cupcakes. They're ok. They have weird combos for sure!
