|Pâtisserie Rhubarbe is located at 5091, de Lanaudière in Montréal, QC, Canada|
Theres a new bakery in town! Nestled in a quiet residential area, just off of a main drag, is hidden Montreal's new addition to the vast scale of bakeries that Montreal has to offer. Having only been open since the fall of 2010, the Pâtisserie Rhubarbe is creating quite the buzz. It's deconstructed method of making their pastries blend in very well with the calm and homey decor that embellishes this small store. The open kitchen is small but just big enough to accommodate the 2 staff working there; the owner and an additional kitchen staff. We were kindly greeted as we entered by the owner, who is the pastry chef. She makes time to explain the pastries, make your coffee and serve you at your place. A very nice, inviting feel all around. Here are some pictures of a few of their desserts.

The open kitchen and small space make it very important that the kitchen is very clean at all times, even more with the high counter with chairs, overlooking the kitchen. Small and cozy, you will want to keep your eyes peeled for their sign, which is not very big at all and can be very easily overlooked even when walking by. The big windows at the front makes it a very well lit place when the afternoon sun enters the store. A very relaxing place to meet friends, read by yourself or even study.
