From their website – “Sophie Sucre makes classic desserts and pastries, entirely vegan. Sophie Sucre creates memorable treats fresh daily with unwavering commitment to whole, often organic, 100% plant-based ingredients. Serving mindfully made baked goods, Sophie Sucre aims to allow one and all to indulge in responsible decadence.”

Sophie Sucree was the first all vegan bakery in Montreal, and the experience shows in their cakes, which are absolutely first class. Some vegan bakeries struggle with the admittedly difficult job of replacing dairy in items such as croissant, and in retaining the individual textures and flavours of varying cakes. Sophie Sucree has clearly studied the very nature of each item – what it is that makes it a success – and reproduced it wonderfully to create cakes with all of the tastes you’re used to, minus the needless cruelty that accompanies regular deserts.

My favourites were the feta and spinach pockets (the vegan feta is made in house)…

…the brownie (heavy in flavour and texture)…

…and the cherry cheesecake (the thickest, creamiest non-cream I’ve ever tasted).

Then there are the cupcakes, all 6 were of a light sponge with a flavourful, lush cream.

So many items to choose from yet so little time, for us at least. Perhaps we need to move to Montreal just to eat here. Not a bad idea, actually! And it’s only a 15 minute walk from the Uni Accommodation, too.
