It was more than a brisk morning while walking near the Mont-Royal stop in Montreal and I was immediately greeted by a large retriever with a waving tail, always a welcomed sign. Dogs are usually this happy when :
a.) their owners are nearby;
b.) when there’s food;
c.) when their owners are nearby―with food.
Clearly, this was serendipitous as I needed coffee, something warm to eat and gifts to bring home.
This enthusiastic puppy was checking off all the proverbial boxes as she lead me to the entrance of Boulangerie Premiere Moisson, specializing in baked goods, gourmet specialties, pastries and take-away. They have locations throughout the city, but this is no chain establishment. More importantly, what they serve is anything but chain food. I ordered a large vanilla cappuccino and jambon et fromage croissant and loved them.
