Cafe Verdure is Fantastic
Posted on 09 / 17 / 2013
I ate here twice while I was in Montreal and everything I had was fantastic.
My first trip was just a dessert trip, and so I got an iced Latte, Cinnamon Doughnut, and Blueberry Pecan Scone. The doughnut had great flavor and wonderful texture. IT was Gluten-Free and while I enjoy Gluten-free foods I often find Gluten-Free baked goods to be crumbly. This is not the case with anything I tried at Cafe Verdure. All the baked goods were moist, fluffy and delicious. I especially liked the scone which was one of the best i'd ever had. I also like that many of the desserts have a sugar-free option.
My second trip was for lunch I had the Italian Veggie Ball Sandwich, and my husband had the Portabello Mushroom with Herb Butter Sandwich. Both were excellent. I loved the flavor and texture of the veggie balls, and the herbed butter on the mushroom sandwich was great! Even better was the delicious gluten-free bread the sandwiches came on. It was so moist, and flavorful I could have just eaten the bread by itself.
Food Aside I thought this little cafe had a really great atmosphere, great music was always playing and the owner was super nice. She talked with us for quite a while and when I asked her what kind of flour she used for the baked goods and bread she told me she makes her own blend and that for each product the blend is different to ensure that each baked good is moist, light and fluffy. This kind of effort really means a lot to me, and the love she puts into her food really shines through.
Sadly each time I went in there were only a couple of customers, this cafe is new and so I hope it starts getting more attention in the coming months, because it truly deserves it. I know that if I lived in Montreal I would be visiting frequently! I know i'll definitely stop in on my next trip because we really loved this place and it's amazing food!
Excellent food!, Fair Prices , Friendly Staff
