Hof KelstenLike a slice of the Old Country, Hof Kelsten is the only artisanal bakery in town that makes a real, classic rye bread with kimmel seeds. In fact the breads at this Saint-Laurent Boulevard bakery are so delicious that renowned restaurants Toqué! and Joe Beef serve them. The stylish teal-tiled space with wooden beams and casual seating arrangements feeds roast beef sandwiches and home cured gravlax to an enthusiastic crowd of regulars all week, but weekends are special because of the brunch offerings. Make room for chicken schnitzels served with a fried egg, potatoes with cabbage. And grab a challah bread on the way out – it’s a weekend exclusive.
