Patisserie La Cigogne opening on Danforth?

Anyone know anything about this? Their website says they'll be celebrating the opening of their Danforth location, possibly mid-May. Anyone know where?

  1. Their signage is in the old Casa Giorgio restaurant at Danforth and Monarch Park (between Greenwood and Coxwell); at first, I thought I was hallucinating. This is a much larger space than the Bayview location. As an area resident I am THRILLED by the additition to the neighbourhood.

      Oh my!! Good choice! Something for us east-enders. Can't wait!

        No way!! I can't believe it!! I saw Casa Giorgio papered over recently but never thought that anything decent might move in. Between that and the great news about Royal Beef having a new butcher (ex Healthy Butcher) and a great line of new products, things are really looking up for our neighbourhood.

          Thanks! Danforth really needs some decent croissants, Looking forward to this.

            Is the location on Bayview closing or are they just opening Another location?

          2. Super exciting. I can't wait!

            1. I've been hoping a bakery would open close by sometime. Great!

                Just saw the sign, couldn't believe my eyes! Sure we've already got Patisserie Zane and Voulez Vous cafe for croissants, but these guys make Flammekueche on weekends. Think thin crust Alsatian pizza covered in fromage blanc, onions and lardons. SO EXCITED!

                  YEAH! I can't wait for them to open - I'll be droolling - and gaining 30 pounds overnight!

                    Now that is a nice surprise....great news!!!

              2. meh . . . I'm local and will probably get some croissants. But, this is definitely my least favourite of the Bayview and Mt Pleasant bakeries by a long measure. Why can't Rahier be the one coming here?

                  My thoughts exactly! Way too sweet pastries!

                2. Called them on Saturday and was told they'd be opening this Sunday, June 19th.

                  @Atahualpa and Charles: You guys may very well be right (all I ever really got at Cigogne is croissants), but it's a step in the right direction for the 'hood. Look a few blocks east at Woodbine where Celena's brought Cozy Cafe and Caketown. Maybe Rahier will follow!
