Winter and summer, these little fried pastries sprinkled with flavored sugar, sometimes stuffed, sometimes served with a dip, crispy and crunchy, are real gourmet pleasures. Churros originated in Spain and became popular in Latin America, and they have captured the hearts and palates of Montrealers. Here are nine places in Montréal to taste delicious churros, from traditional recipes to quirky takes on this yummy dessert.

Boulangerie Samos

An institution on Saint-Laurent Boulevard since 1950, Boulangerie Samos is a gourmet landmark not only for locals and visitors alike. You’ll find typical South American products, both salty and sweet, including delicious freshly fried churros every day.

Chichi Café

The Chichi Café is constantly reinventing this beloved dessert with chichi cones, churros served sweet poutine style, or even as a cake. If you are more of the traditional type, go for the chichis. 

Ibericos

At the Ibericos restaurant – but especially at the café called Ibericos Café - Merkat, located just upstairs – you can lounge in armchairs enjoying a cone of churros along with a hot chocolate, the combination recommended by Chef Haissam. Quick-fried with orange zest sugar, they are simply divine! 

Mignon — Churros et Nougat

This six-generation family business has made a big splash in the city by opening a stall in the new food hall, Le Central. Fried on demand and served with (or without) a dip, these churros will make you melt. 

Les Papi Churros

If you are looking for great churros with a fun twist, head to Les Papi Churros. From cones overflowing with ice cream and your choice of toppings, to twists with flavours like Oreo, cookie dough, Reese’s, crème brûlée or cotton candy, the hardest part will be choosing which one to try. 

Sabor Latino

Their first location is in the Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie district and the second is on the Plateau Mont-Royal. What do they have in common? Their delicious traditional family recipe for churros. Treat yourself to this little pleasure while you shop for a host of typical South American products. 

Tapéo and Mesón

These two Spanish-inspired restaurants, located in Villeray, honour churros in their own way by offering them on the dessert menu. The toppings vary with the seasons, and depending on Chef Marie-Fleur’s inspiration. 

Churros Montréal

The first churreria established in Montréal, this institution located on Saint-Hubert Street is a must-try. Their crunchy little treats are available plain (with sugar) or flavoured with cinnamon, chocolate or dulce de leche. 

M. Churros Mme Banane

In season, this little cabin located in the Old Port lets you create your own churros by choosing a sugar of your choice (cinnamon, lime or salted caramel), as well as your garnish. So, what will it be? Chocolate, dulce de leche, spicy chocolate or whipped cream?
