Where can I find a good Yule Log for Christmas Eve dessert?

We're looking forward to a traditional French Canadian meal of Tortière for a main course, but wanted to follow with a Bûche de Noël - a traditional French dessert.

Any suggestions of the best place in town to place an order?

  1. I don't know if it's THE best as I haven't tried theirs, but Dessert Lady in Cumberland offers it as part of their Christmas menu. I like their cookies and pies so I'm hoping their Yule Log will be good, too.

    1. You may want to try a try... they make amazing desserts.

      1. Le Comptoir de Celestin on Mount Pleasant makes the most beautiful and delicious Buche de Noel in Toronto. I place an order every year-although I worry that you may be out of luck this close to Christmas.

        By the way, we have the same tradition in our family.

          Also check out Patachou. We've been on christmas eve to pick up other items from them, and those logs are flying out the door. You must order ahead though.

        2. Rahier. We get theirs every year and it is always delicious, they usually have a few different flavours.

          1. Pusateri's on Ave. Road on Bathurst, North of Lawrence. They have a very nice selection of "bûche de Noël' by Thuet, etc. Very good, but they do not look like like the French bûche you would find in French pastries from France.
