This former pasta bar has been transformed into a sleek white space offering fine French desserts. The owner, Géraldine, draws inspiration from famous French confectioners including Ladurée, known for their macarons, and Angelina, a Parisian café that has seen the likes of Coco Chanel and Marcel Proust.
Géraldine likes to mix and match flavours using spices, chocolate, fruits, nuts and seeds, depending what’s in season.
Today’s selection consisted of lemon-poppy seed and lime-coconut tartlets, cardamom chocolate mousse, passion-fruit macarons, calissons (almond paste tartlets), and the Montreal interpretation of a famous classic – Paris Brest – with maple-syrup roasted apples and salty-sweet caramel.
For those who can’t decide on what to have, there’s even a mini version of each tartlet to sample at half the price. G&G also makes fantastic brownies, marshmallows, meringues and chocolates.
Personalized service also includes catering of all concoctions.
