best chocolates in montreal?

mcgillfoodie is right on the ball, especially that Suite 88 packaging is very elegant. I would add another charming place, Juliette et Chocolat on St Denis, facing St DEnis Theatre for an afternoon crepe and marvellous hot chocolate and I personnally enjoy the Porto and cholates they have on the menu.

Nice touch buddy!

Best Portuguese: Portus Calle on St Laurent. Service and atmosphere amazing.
Best Bring your Own wine: O'thym. On Ste Cath
Best Breakfast: LE Cartet on Mc Gill Ave
Top 5 French Restaurants: Toqué ($$$$), Club Chasse et Peche ($$$), Leméac(Laurier), LA montée de Lait ($$), Cuisine et Dépendance ($$$)
Best Chocolate: Juliette et Chocolat, Suite 88 on St Denis
Obviously, best, is relative. With this you can spend your week in peace. All are within metro reach. Enjoy your week.

Breakfast in Montreal

At a walking distance on Mc Gill Avenue, Le Cartet is a "food boutique", that serves delicious breakfast. Olive and Gourmando is also a must for "palmier and brownies". Try also Juliette et Chocolat on St Denis for magnificient brownies and crêpes.
