La Cardeline La Cardeline La Cardeline La Cardeline La Cardeline La CardelineLa Cardeline La Cardeline La CardelineI 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.

    I’m really excited about this place! The cookies look great, and it’s nice to see a place selling more traditional cookies that aren’t the moist & chewy that people have been obsessing over for so long.
