When it comes to getting their baguettes, rolls, croissants, loaves, and pastries, Montrealers are spoiled with choices. But your best chance of seeing out-the-door lineups is at Mamie Clafoutis. Its devout clientele are hooked on tasty breads and the kind of treats French grand-méres used to make: tarte tatins (upside-down apple pie), cannelés (striated pastry cylinders of caramelized sugar and cinnamon), and clafoutis (cherries and other fresh fruit topped with batter and then baked).
