Pain au chocolat
- michael macaulay
I'm looking for the best pain au chocolat in Toronto.
Tried Rahier, La Chignone, Patachou, Clafouti.
Still have not found the perfect one.
have you tried celestin's pain au chocolat? it's quite good. very flaky. chocolate is nice as well. I buy mine at the cheese boutique. celestin only delivers on saturday and sunday there. i've been buying it for a couple months there and people are really getting into it. it's on your left as you come in the door.
what about Pain Perdu on St. Clair West? i've tried their chocolate croissant and it is super flakey and all the people in that bakery speak french... it costs about $1.75 for a chocolate croissant. mmm mmm good.
I would like to propose a couple of "pains" that are right off the regular circuit : Pain au chocolat at Chabichou on Harbord and also the version at the Gilead cafe ? I find that the chocolat slightly melted from hot flaky croissant at Chabichou is of a superior quality .
