Yum! - Edit

The chocolatine was amazing. Not a huge fan of the cupcake icing, but they have plenty of other options!

Wow! - Edit

Best Vegan cupcakes ever! I love vanilla cupcakes and if your vegan you know that chocolate is the way to go if you don't want to eat a cupcake that has a tennis ball consistency, but not here- no tennis balls here. Just amazing!!!

Delicious, adorable, perfect! - Edit

Everything is fresh and delicious, the gluten free treats are just as good as the rest, which is rare! Every dessert is pretty and seems to be made with love, I'm always proud to bring them to parties. The place is very small with few seating spots, but worth it when you get one!

Pros: Gluten free options, Fresh, beautiful and delicious food, Friendly staff

I liked it! - Edit

We had a little cheese cake and a pecan tart, both were good. The cheesecake however wasn't sweet enough, we really liked to relaxing atmosphere in the little place and the fact that we were able to sit down and have tea with our desserts was amazing! (we love tea)

Pros: great atmosphere, tea, good taste

Cons: cheese cakes aren't sweet enough

Absolutely delicious - Edit

We had the dulce de Lexie cupcake and cherry cheesecake. Both were outstanding. Light, crisp, and refreshing. Everything in this bakery is vegan. We were visiting Montreal on vacation and hope to come back soon.

Pros: 100% vegan bakery, Large selection

Cons: We came on a hot day and there was no AC

Yummy! Wish I lived closer. - Edit

Update March 2016: My second visit - the first was in May 2014 - and Sophie Sucrée has only gotten better. A much wider selection of delights available (cupcakes, feuillétés, cookies, cakes). Open late on Thursday evenings. Only a few tables available but the flow of customers seems to be balanced. Can't wait to go back.

Updated from previous review on Tuesday May 27, 2014
Went to Sophie Sucrée one rainy afternoon with a non-vegan friend. I had the carrot cake with cashew cream (delicious), a peanut butter and tahini 'biscuit au beurre' (yummy) and an unbelievably creamy hot chocolate. The lady at the counter was very friendly and helpful. I can't wait to come back here - longue vie à Sophie Sucrée!

Pros: delicious, good location, friendly staff

Fills a missing niche in Montreal - Edit

This is the only and therefore best vegan bakery in Montreal! I have been to others elsewhere that were better, and I would argue that some vegan restaurants in Montreal do cakes better but this place has things you can't find elsewhere. Scones, brioches etc. I wish they had croissants!

Pros: Vegan, Only place like this in mtl

Vegan Sweet Paradise! - Edit

I have been to vegan bakeries before, but Sophie Sucrée is in a category all to itself. We discovered it by accident today while walking around the neighborhood. I thought it was a bakery with some vegan options and asked what they were. When I was told, "Everything!" My jaw dropped. It looks like a rich patisserie with tons of butter and cream. Not! :) We tried the pain au raisin and a "cheese"cake with hazelnuts and caramel. They were divine. So of course we went back for dinner. We shared a lentil soup and the hot dish of the day: a Mediterranean-spiced tempeh, veg & potato combo over jasmine rice. I had a chocolate & praline dipped praline ice cream bar for dessert. We're going for breakfast before we leave town. This is a must-visit for any vegan in Montréal!

Pros: Incredible pastries

Cons: Only one server, and it gets busy!

Delicious and friendly, but not as good as others - Edit

I've had the good fortune of visiting Pattycake (Columbus, OH), Vegan Treats (Bethlehem, PA), Freckles (Berlin) & Sticky Fingers (Washington DC).Those are mind-blowingly good.

Sophie Sucree is good, and we enjoyed it, but we couldn't help the "It's not as good as those" mindset. Still, great options and great tastes.

Pros: All vegan

So This Is How Hard Choice Is For Non Vegans - Edit

Small but perfectly formed kooky little place, lovely friendly staff, and such a choice of vegan sweets that we had to scoff our faces. Rarely do we face the wonderful dilemma of such choice. Had to bring some home for later...

Pros: Scrumptious cakes, icecream, truffles, cookies ..., Lovely staff, Did I mention the amazing vegan goodies??

Cons: Erm ..., None That We Saw.

we loved it so much we came twice! - Edit

Ran across this place looking for lunch. They only have one sandwich, a vegan blt both times, but we got the vegan frittata. It was excellent. We also had two coffees and a slice if peach pie with pistachio rosewater ice cream and caramel ice cream). Again, delicious.

We came a couple days later and bought two for one cupcakes and iced tea, also great. We would definitely recommend making this a priority stop.

One of the best parts was the woman working both days, who was extraordinarily friendly.

Pros: desserts, options, staff

Cons: none!

The Best Vegan Bakery! - Edit

This is by far one of the best Vegan Bakeries I've ever been too. It's definitely the best Vegan Bakery in Montreal, and really the only other place that I can think of to rival it would be Edible Flours in Vancouver, however Sophie Sucree just might have them beat too.

I was so fortunate on my trip to Montreal to be able to eat here twice, and both times the service was good, and the staff was friendly, helpful, and talkative. We had a nice long chat with the owner who was a real sweetheart, and a total inspiration. Since It was back in September that we visited I can't recall exactly everything we ate while there but on both trips we enjoyed iced coffee with almond milk. I recall we also ate cinnamon buns, cupcakes, a fruit tart, a brownie, and a few other things. Each pastry was divine, delicate, fluffy, sweet - but not too sweet - in short, perfect. In fact, I'm not sure i've ever had more perfect baked goods, and I say this as an avid - and quite a fantastic - baker myself. The love in this cafe is evident, the love, and passion that goes into each creation is palpable, and it is something you should not miss. Whether you live in Montreal or are just visiting you need to make the effort to go to Sophie Sucree, your tastebuds will thank you. I can't wait for my next trip to Montreal!

Pros: Great Coffee, and Desserts , Friendly, helpful Staff, Great Atmosphere

What Montreal was missing. - Edit

While there are so many things to say about this place, I think I can some my opinion up quite quickly:

As an avid vegan baker, every time I go here I am simultaneously thrilled to be eating such perfect vegan baked goods at the same time I am so jealous that I haven't yet figured out how to make such perfect pastries in my own kitchen.

Pros: beautiful and cozy, variety, inexpensive

Cons: not convienient to sit/read for a while

They're living my dream... - Edit

which is basically to have a vegan bakery-café. Failing that, if I still lived on the Plateau, I'd be hanging out at this place on my days off nibbling treats and having coffee.

* * *
I had ordered a chocolate-orange yule log for Xmas eve dinner via email and they were very flexible with the arrangements since I live off-island. It was absolutely amazing to have this for dessert with a bunch of non-veg*ns. The cake was very moist and the almonds were such a nice touch. (see pic). At the same time, I picked out a pecan tart (nice but just ok) and a freshly made almond cream brioche (really good!).

* * *
Today, I went for brunch (see pic for description). It was $12, including coffee/tea or juice. I took an earl grey tea which was served out of a thermos. Unfortunately, it was lukewarm -- a no-no for tea enthusiasts. The plate had a lot of goodies: the sweet potato pancake was very good, as was the tortière. I didn't care for the ketchup, though. The real jewel of this brunch plate was the salad: kale tossed in lemon juice, topped with dried cranberries, crushed pecans and pomegranate kernels. This is something I'll have to try and re-create.

Overall, it was a tasty, high quality meal, but not very much food for the price. An improvement would be to either add a second pancake and have a larger salad, or add something bready to the plate. Also, to make sure the tea is hot.

Upon paying the bill, I bought two doughnuts: sugar & cinnamon, and coconut. Both are yeast-based doughnuts, not cake ones -- it's very hard to find yeasted vegan doughnuts, so I was very excited. The coconut was amazing, the other was just standard. Apparently these were made by a place called Léché Desserts, an artisanal doughnut boutique, and Sophie Sucrée carries them from Thursday to Sunday.

Friendly, cute and delicious - Edit

All the baked goods look as good as they taste. The whole place is extremely cute, and the woman at the desk was very personable and helpful. Our only complaint was that the coffee wasn't spectacular.

Pros: Food and store look great, Friendly staff, Delicious

Cons: Coffee is just okay
