I'm in the middle of planning a one day Montreal-shopping extravaganza. I have my budget planned and my wishlist complete. I am fantasizing about the fabulous finds that await me...but my mind keeps wandering to my favorite Montreal snack break: a delicious, flaky, and fresh chocolate croissant. Believe it or not, I actually plan my shopping trip around a scheduled snack break at a specific bakery downtown. They have a particularly amazing chocolate croissant there.
Since I will not be making the trip to Montreal until mid-October, I will have to venture downtown to Benny's Bistro to enjoy what I consider to be Ottawa's best chocolate croissant. Luckily, my hair salon is on the same street as Benny's, so I get to enjoy this little treat every 6-8 weeks.
Benny's Bistro is a fabulous little restaurant in the Byward Market. They offer delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch options, along with an array of baked goods. I can not wait to sit at a little table, read the paper, and enjoy a steaming latte with my chocolate croissant.
