BEST cookie in T.O - Le Gourmand

  • n

I have to say the best cookie in Toronto can be found at Le Gourmand -
Spadina btw/n Queen and Richmond. They are about 3 cm in diameter, thick, crunchy on the outside with a not-cooked (soft) consistency on the inside. Sooo good. Choco chip, oatmeal. They're all good. And the organic coffee is awesome too. Enjoy!

  1. My vote is for the Neiman Marcus cookie, from Altitude bakery on Quuen E, west of Greenwood.
    Chocolate chips, nuts and coconot. Soft and chewy, big, but not gargantuan. Can't go wrong.

        I'll second the Dessert Lady.

    2. I am going to weigh in and say I love the Dessert Lady cookies. Not chewy but slightly soft and just a little crisp. tasty.

        I think that the Dessert Lady cookies are just okay - but that's just my personal opinion. Everyone has different cookie needs :3

      2. Sounds amazing, I'll have to try it. Wish I knew someone in the neighbourhood to bring me one right now...

          Hehehe... I'll get right on that Kasey...

        2. I have to agree. Le Gourmand has the best cookies in Toronto. Favorite is the walnut chocolate chip cookie. Perfect on a cold winter day (or anytime for that matter), with a hot cup of Fair Trade Organic French Roast coffee.

          1. I agree -- they have fabulous cookies. My favorite is the dome-shaped flourless chocolate cookie. Mini heaven. Their croissants are also really good, in particular the chocolate croissant. It was a godsend when they opened up in the food court at Yonge and Bloor.

              Where exactly at Yonge & Bloor? I didn't know they opened up a place there.

                At the east end near Park Road underneath the Bay. They're right in front of the escalators that take up you to the men's section.
