The strong aroma of sugary goodness hits your nostrils the moment you set foot inside this cupcake heaven. The shop is a calm oasis in the hustle of Old Montreal—a pink oasis, that is. Finding it is easy. What's not easy is resisting the sight that lies ahead at the counter.
Cupcakes. Dozens of them. Vanilla, s'more, cookies 'n' cream, salted caramel, red velvet. Flavors you already know, but trust me when I say you are about to experience them on a whole new level.
Les Glaceurs offers a few staple flavors that remain popular year-round. Then there are the seasonal surprises, always welcome for the regular customers—those who consider calorie counting a silly mathematics exercise. The cupcakes sell for about $4 apiece, which isn't cheap, granted. But every single bite is worth a million bucks in terms of taste and texture.
There is a problem, though. It's not the price, it's not the cupcakes. It's that once you've had the delicious creations at Les Glaceurs, it completely ruins the cupcake experience for you elsewhere. Any other cupcake shop around the world will pale in comparison.
