Montreal Eats: Les Glaceurs in Old Montréal

We made a trip here after evening mass at the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. It was a 30 degrees day and some ice cold gelati was very much in order. And it was especially easier to convince the parents because since it was such a hot day, dad and mum were more than accommodating to Jie and my request for dessert before dinner!

“Everyday, Les Glaceurs prepare some of the freshest & most delicious homemade cupcakes from traditional recipes and decorated with a touch of fantasy. We use only the highest quality ingredients in perfect dosage, and we believe this is what makes our cupcakes so irresistible!” –

While Les Glaceurs is famous for their cupcakes and almost everyone talks about their Red Velvet and extremely generous frosting, we aimed straight for their bright pink wall with its long rectangular board and various flavours of the day written in chalk.

We chose a waffle cone dipped in chocolate and peanuts with two scoops of Pistache and Bric-à-brac. And my did the nice server really know how to put a huge smile on my face with such generous scoops! Loved the pistachio nut-to-ice cream ratio and with the tiny biscuit bits in the Bric-à-brac, it was so goooooooood! Don’t you want to just eat that scrumptious looking thing out of the computer screen right now?
