I had the pleasure of speaking with Virginie Cros, a French native from Marseille, who recently picked up, moved to Montreal and opened up a cookie shop based on the cookie shops found in Provence but with modernized ingredients and techniques. She offers a selection of cookies based on butter, and another based on a special olive oil which she imports exclusively for her cookies. They were rich, crumbly and extremely flavourful. They will also be offering a frozen nougat dessert which is light, yet rich and thick (I know sounds counterintuitive but trust me!) I loved the frozen dessert and found it very original.
Check out her cookie shop and her fab creations!
Decor: Simple yet functional. It’s just a counter, and is strictly a to-go establishment.
Service: Cashier service only.
Price: $2.30 for a cookie which is fair. They are pretty big too!
Good For: Cookies to go! For a snack, or for an event. Also, the nougat dessert is great for a hot day.
Baby Friendly: It’s really just an order counter, so I’d say yes.
