They See Me Rollin’
5670 Rue Jarry E, Montréal, QC H1P 1V5
Jarry Est is home to a little bakery and pretzel shop that is definitely worth a visit. Dolce Vita and Bretzel & Compagnie are owned by a sweet couple, Bronwyn and Andreas, who invited me to come spend a Sunday with them at their shop to try my hand at pretzel-rolling. Little did I know, there is technique and skill involved, and I think I’ll just stick to blogging. A friend and I had so much fun rolling and taste testing along with the couple’s adorable 5-year old twin boys. You could find them and their little brother running around the bakery on any given day. It is so obvious that they just love being there, and we could easily see why!
So, what could you find at Bretzel et Compagnie? Pretzels of course. From Cheddar & Chili, to Maple Bacon, these soft pretzels are unlike any others in the city. Andreas’ father from Germany handed down the recipe to these twisted treats, and they are indeed the real deal. The couple also make pizzas, pastries, and cannoli that they fill with ricotta cream right before your eyes – ALL from scratch. Whether grabbing a soft pretzel or pastry, and a cappuccino, I guarantee a visit to this little bakery will put a smile on your face.
If you have an event coming up (baby shower, engagement party, wedding, birthday), keep them in mind! When I walked in, they were working on some beautiful (and delicious…..I know because I taste-tested of course) white chocolate-dipped pretzels with edible pearls for an event. They do custom orders. So call them up, run your idea by them, and see how they could help!
|The reason this pretzel looks slightly deformed, is because I made it!
Like I said….I’m going to stick to blogging and eating and leave
the baking to Andreas and Bronwyn!
FUN FACT: As if you weren’t impressed enough yet, they also bake the bread for Café Milano’s sandwiches!
