Any suggestions on where to go for the best creme brulee in Toronto? Thanks for your help!

    I had a great blueberry creme brulée last night at Amuse-Bouche. They serve dessert tasting menus and I bet you could request a creme brulée be a part of it.

      I loooove Creme Brulee and ALWAYS order it if on a dessert menu.
      I must say one of the best I have had was at Citizen restaurant. They are made to perfection...warm on top, cool underneath...just perfect.

        Messis on Harbord serves up a luscious cb. About a year ago I met a fella who had never had it before -- or so he claimed -- and so we were off to Messis for his inaugural taste.

          Best traditional Brulee I've had is for dessert at Jules on Spadina, just south of Queen. La Palette on Augusta in Kensington market has a pretty neat "Trio" of chocolate, strawberry and regular Creme Brulee. Very good!

            i personally do not like creme brulee, but my sig other likes it quite a bit.

            Cafe La Gaffe on Baldwin & McCaul has a century-old recipe. pretty tasty.

            Two different types of creme brulee: Supermarket on Augusta (Kensington Market) has green tea creme brulee. and Cru (Royal York subway stn) has a sesame creme brulee that is quite nice

              Any of the Michael Bonaccini restaurants usually makes very nice Creme Brulee. Smooth, creamy, superb "croque" top.

                Avant Gout on Yonge between Rosedale & Summerhill.
                If you search the board you should find this consistently recommended. Only comment is that when it is served, the topping may still be melted so take 30 secs to allow the top to harden for the perfect serving.

                  Avant Gout is the best I've ever had. POP Bistro also does a nice one, but nothing like AG.

                  I personally recommend Ruth's Chris steakhouse. So velvety smooth and full of vanilla bean. sooo good.
