About Us

Our desserts are the best antidepressants in the world. They should be covered by health insurance.

At Pâtisserie Michaud, we’re hard-core gourmets who like to do things…the naughty way. That’s why, each and every day, we offer a selection of our most decadent desserts that are rich in real ingredients and, quite frankly…

Just plain rich !

The company’s recipes have always featured simple ingredients that can be found in any household kitchen. In fact, we make each dessert as though we’re going to give it to the person we love the most in the world. That says a lot.

And have fun with your loved ones with no inhibitions.

We’ve been catering to sweet tooths for over 35 years.

Pâtisserie Michaud was founded by Mrs. Colette Michaud, a doting and sweet mother that got her start making desserts for the entire neighborhood in a Québec City borough. Her desserts were so popular, she opened up her very own bakery in 1983. Since the very beginning, Pâtisserie Michaud’s goal has been to create desserts that remind us of our childhoods and evoke feelings of happiness, comfort, pleasure and surprise.

Today’s president, Mario Michaud and son of Colette, joined the family business in the early 1990’s and launched the retail side of Pâtisserie Michaud, establishing partnerships with grocery stores and other retailers.

Over the years, the company continuously grew and started offering desserts for restaurants, institutions, hotels and even more grocery stores.

Today, Michaud desserts are sold via 15 major distributors and in thousands of retail outlets throughout Canada. In 2015, the company expanded its facilities for a third time with the construction of a brand-new modern 22 500 sq. ft. factory, thereby increasing its production capacity.

Our promise


At Michaud, our ultimate goal is to create pleasure and comfort with our cakes. We want every moment in your life where you chose to celebrate with a Michaud cake to be a perfect moment. While we strive to achieve this, our business is far from perfect despite our best intentions. So, if for some reason our cake did not give you the pleasure you were promised, our policy is “PLEASURE GUARANTEED OR HAPPINESS BACK”.

Michaud will make up for your lost pleasure by offering you another type of happiness within 30 days of your purchase. For a substitute pleasure, write us a few lines about why you didn’t like your cake and what replacement delight you would like.

Our personality
  • Respectful
  • Natural
  • Brilliant

We’re on a brand-new dessert revolution.
Oh. Yeah.

We believe…

That it’s important to have fun in life. A rich life that is filled with passion and boldly trying new things. After all, a dessert is the perfect symbol of love and happiness.

We believe that dessert should never be associated with guilt. Using real ingredients is THE secret ingredient for a dessert that everyone will enjoy.

We believe it’s much more fun sharing sugary treats with loved ones.

Never take yourself too seriously and above all, let go of your inhibitions!

We believe…

that a dessert made out of broccoli is just…sad.

However, we do have a few inhibitions. We avoid:

  • Preservatives
  • Anything artificial
  • Shortening
  • Half measures
  • Dessert recipes that make you go “meh”
