We’ve all experienced those late-night sugar cravings, and Griffintown residents luckily have a few options in the neighbourhood to satiate those cravings. If you live in the area or are thinking about buying property in Griffintown and you love dessert, you’ll be pleased to know about these sweet hot spots!
Grinder Viandes & Vins
As the name suggests, Grinder serves top-quality cuts of meat in the heart of Griffintown. What a lot of people don’t know is that they offer amazing desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth. Head there during the late evening and order a cappuccino and the pudding chômeur – a favourite Quebecois dish that combines the aromatic flavour of maple syrup and sponge cake. It’s typically baked and served warm, and trust us when we say this dessert is divine.
This popular chain has several locations across Montreal, but the restaurant in Griffintown is the cosiest and serves up some seriously delicious pies. Head there during a balmy summer evening and check out their selection of desserts from cheesecakes to warm apple crumb. If you can’t decide which one to go with try the apple crumble cheesecake, which is the perfect mix of fruitiness and delicious fluffy cream cheese topped with a bit of cinnamon. If cheesecake isn’t your cup of tea, they also offer pies that are suitable for those who are lactose intolerant.
Marché Italien Le Richmond
We’ve all heard of Le Richmond, which is one of Montreal’s most exclusive restaurants. But did you know they have a small marché next door in Griffintown? Selling a range of homemade pizzas, bread, pasta, and sauces, we recommend heading right to the dessert counter to set your sights on their fresh pastries.
Order a latte and sample the chocolate truffles, which are generously coated with high-quality cocoa powder and created using the finest chocolate in the city. Another classic is tartes aux pommes topped with an almond crumble. Ask the staff to heat up the pastry and ask for a side of fresh whipped cream — dessert heaven!
We have to include a vegan and gluten-free option on this list, and luckily Griffintown has a fantastic place called Le Kitchen. This establishment caters to the health-conscious individuals in the neighbourhood, creating delicious dishes that are made with local ingredients.
Although the poke bowl is delicious, check out the fantastic desserts that include the date squares and the carrot cake energy truffles. They also have peanut butter brownies and truffles that melt in your mouth! All of these sugary options are both gluten-free and vegan!
You can’t deny that Griffintown has some amazing places to grab a dessert. If you’re thinking about moving to this neighbourhood, check out the NOCA project!
