“Yes, that's right. The Mushroom Shop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Mycoboutique is one of those places hard to categorize on Trip Advisor, but for any traveler who loves mushrooms (and my wife and I have a Hobbit-like affection for them), it shouldn't be missed. All things mushrooms...ceramic mushrooms, fabric mushrooms, books on mushrooms, mushroom clothing, mushroom jewelry, classes on mushrooms, fieldtrips to collect, cooking with mushrooms.
Then the mushrooms themselves. Fresh Morels! I haven't found those in decades, living in Florida, but they were good quality, reasonably priced, and made pasta carbonara that night a really exotic treat! They have many kinds fresh, many more dried, and they sell several types of dried mushroom powder that can be used in baking, soups, you name it.
The proprietor--a gentle and courteous man, straight from central casting for a mushroom store owner--greets you warmly as you enter. His English is not perfect, but is far better than my French, but we had no trouble communicating, and his love and knowledge of mushrooms is apparent in any language.
I've never seen a store quite like this, but it's a treasure. If you're a mushroom lover in Montreal, you owe it to yourself to visit. http://www.mycoboutique.ca/en/
