Chez Boris
5151 du Parc

I don’t get out that much these days.  In fact, I haven’t really gotten out for the last 9 months or so which includes 7 months with a baby and 2 months when I was heavily pregnant and not wanting to move.  I mean, I do get out for walks, to the park, the grocery store… I just don’t get out that much from NDG after the hours of 5:00.  So when I do, I like to make it count.  I have a hit list, and Chez Boris was on it.

Chez Boris is a place which is hip, but not painfully so.  Located on du Parc, they are a large-ish café serving fresh doughnuts straight up and as a doughnut-sandwich (beignewich en français).  I was there for the doughnut, straight up.

All doughnuts are made to order and I just asked for a dozen in a variety of flavours.  It ends up the flavours are simply sugar, cinnamon or chocolate, which was just fine with me.  They are small, and chewy.  When hot, they are beautiful.  I imagine them being a tasty treat on a cold winters day.  The staff get bonus points for being friendly.

Decor: Nice, not overdone.
Service: Friendly and courteous
Price: I think it’s reasonable.  You can see the prices in the picture I’ve taken above.  I got a dozen doughnuts for $6.  I was happy.
Food: I liked it, especially hot of course.  A bit chewy and a bit crispy.
Good For: Friends, lunch, snacks, anytime…
Baby Friendly: Yes!  Look at all that room!  I see a mom meet-up in the future….  I can’t comment on the bathrooms and if they are diaper changing friendly or not though.
