Best French napoleon dessert in Yonge/Bloor area?
Although not exactly in Yonge/Bloor area, but simply the best napoleon dessert - a true mille-feuille - you can find in Napoleon Bakery in North York at 1126 Finch Ave West Unit 4 (Dufferin/Finch). You can also place an order ahead of time (15-20min is usually enough to buy a fresh-cut napoleon) - 416 398 4533.
Sadly, my favourite Napoleon in Toronto to-date is the one they serve at Marché.
My favourite Mille-feuille would be what used to be tea-time at The Prince Hotel, but that was umpteen years ago and is probably coloured by nostalgia more than anything else.
Here are my descriptions of the two pastries:
Napolean - two layers of pastry sandwiching a fat layer of pastry cream. Usually dusted with icing sugar.
Mille-feuille - Several alternating layers of pastry and pastry cream and a white-sugar and chocolate striped top
I prefer the Napolean.
