The artisanal doughnut
Why locals love it
Cupcakes are out. Doughnuts are back in – and they’ve made a strong comeback. Enter Léché Desserts, Montreal’s first doughnut shop currently revamping the classic dessert. The tiny café/bakery serves up a selection of airy and fluffy confections made up of unique flavour combinations – be sure you get them quick before they run out!
Why you should visit it
Located in Saint-Henri, simply walking in is a treat as the scent of freshly baked doughnut surrounds you. Packaged in their unmistakable hot pink boxes, these delicacies are made with local, natural ingredients – and lots of love. Try the following flavours: Boston cream, maple glaze, pistachio cream, lemon meringue, PB&J, and cheesecake.
A second location recently opened up in the Old Port.
