Montreal-Day 2

Clock Tower

I first went to the Clock Tower to find it cordoned off by Navy personnel in full regalia. So I decided to walk along the waterfront before making my way to a metro station to go to St. Joseph’s Oratory of Mont Royal.

I attended the 11am solemn mass with the Les Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal. They sang quite beautifully and reminded me of St. Michael’s Choir.

Around Restaurant l’Avenue

After mass, I took the bus to l’Avenue (please refer to my review of it on an earlier post for details). Afterwards I meandered my way to Patisserie Rhubarbe (please refer to my review of it on an earlier post for details). I then walked to a 11 bus stop and waited for a while for the bus to come and take me to Mont Royal Park’s Belvédère Kondiaronk.

After taking my fill of pictures, I took the bus to St. Joseph’s Oratory to view the gardens there.

Afterwards I went back to my hostel. At my hostel I figured out Monday’s itinerary since Monday was Thanksgiving so I wanted to be sure that the places I was going to were all open. I also started talking to a girl staying at the hostel and we ended up going to Schwartz’s (please refer to my review of it on an earlier post for details), Aux Vieux and Dieu du Ciel (please refer to my review of it on an earlier post for details) together along with her two other roommates. Aux Vieux is a vegan restaurant and the girl was the only one out of the four of us to order something there. I was still full from the smoked meat sandwich so I didn’t order anything at Aux Vieux. On our way back to the hostel from Dieu du Ciel, we walked past St. Louis Square and the houses surrounding the square look quite pretty at night.

Patisserie Rhubarbe

My foodie friend also recommended me to go to Patisserie Rhubarbe for their mille feuille. I got slightly lost trying to find the place but this nice guy basically lead me there when I asked him for directions. Coincidentally, he was going to Patisserie Rhubarbe as well to pick up his order. When I arrived there, they were sold out of mille feuille. I decided to get their panna cotta ($4.5) and verveine macaron ($1.25).

The decor is rustic and it’s a very small patisserie. There are several tables for you to sit and enjoy their pastries and drinks. The people working there are very nice and friendly. It’s on a side street in a quaint residential neighbourhood so if you don’t know the neighbourhood, it’s slightly hard to find. The verveine macaron is ok. It’s not as good as other macarons that I had in Toronto although it’s definitely the cheapest macaron I’ve eaten. The verveine macaron has a lemony mint kind of taste.

The panna cotta was quite delicious and creamy. I was unable to finish it so I got it as take out for tomorrow’s breakfast. The next time I’m in Montreal, I’ll come back for their pot chocolat (they use dark chocolate) and mille feuille.
