Where can I find really good brioche in Toronto?

I need some brioche for a dinner I'm hosting on the weekend. Does anyone know where I can get the best brioche in the city?

  1. It's not something I buy often, but the brioche at Bonjour Brioche has always done the trick for me.

      I haven't had too many brioches to compare... but I bought a double brioche at Bonjour Brioche a while back after my meal and found it somewhat lacking in flavour and a bit dry

        I have to agree with hippotatomus. I ordered one (lemon raspberry) with brunch the last time I was there and it was dry. The only flavour came from the filling. The croissant and baguette were really great though...

    2. I don't know if it's the "best" but Rahier's was featured in Martha Stewart's magazine once and I've bought it occasionally as I live in the neighborhood. I find it perfectly respectable...

        I'm a bit late to this thread. Rahier makes a lovely brioche. So does Jules and Thobor's (the 2 posts immediately below). If you can get to the Mt. Pleasant/Bayview area, between the 3 of these you have will no problem finding nice brioche (or any other French baked good for that matter).

      2. I like Jules on Mt. Pleasant.

        1. I've always enjoyed Marc's brioche at Thobors.


          1. Ma Maison is good. My sis in law grew up in France and she loved the brioches there. She also said that the Pain au Chocolats were excellent.

              Did she try any other patisseries other than Ma Maison when she visited?

                We had the apple tart, apricot tart, croissant and pain au chocolat and she said that they were all good. She was impressed with the pain au chocolat, brioche and tarts.
