I am looking for somewhere to get petit fours in York region...but would go to Toronto for them. I typically get them from Kessler's Swiss Bakery in Richmond Hill but they have gone on an extended holiday and I wanted to get them for a party in November. Thanks so much!

    Try Amadeus (Bathurst & Centre). They have gorgeous pastries with high quality ingredients.

      Patachou in Toronto makes beautiful petit fours.

        Do they sell traditional petit fours? (small sponge cake topped with fondant, usually decorated with piped flowed - about the size of a quarter)

              Patachou does not always have them available and on display. You'd best call ahead and maybe even pre-order if you require a lot. I know at Christmas they regularly have them, but not always at other times.

              P.s.. They are the best in the city. I did a special order for Mr. Millygirl's 50th birthday. They were exquisite.

                That's great thank you so much! Do they let you choose what colour they come if you special order them? I always like white ones at Christmas.

                  Last year I recall the christmas ones being available in either pink or yellow for certain. They may have had blue and white also but this I can't be sure of. Either color, they are fantastic. They use a generous amount of liquor in the flavouring but I can't recall offhand which one it is.

          melgreco, do you know how long of an extended holiday is Kessler's taking? They will be re-opening will they? Was there last week and it looks very baren and their phone line is disconnected. I have concerns their extended holiday maybe permanent.
