Butter Avenue

This looks promising, especially the name. I was driving by at Yonge & Yonge Blvd. It's not open yet, but I was wondering if anyone has heard more about it. The pictures on the window look like french macaroons but the name implies more homey type desserts.

  1. No, but I'm looking forward to the opening. It will be nice to have an alternative to Patisserie Sebastian. Parking will be a nightmare around there, though.

    1. Here's a closer look at their product:

      Not sure if it's all macarons all the time for them, but it will be a feature from what I can tell.

        How were they? Because seriously, if they make good macarons, I am so screwed -- Burger's Priest is opening on the next block. Burger, fries and shake, followed by some salted caramel macarons? 5 minutes from my house. Oh dear god.

          They were only okay, but mind, I've had them only once. I'll give macarons a few chances usually, knowing how variable they can be.

          They've been ramping up since around June? July? They're media-savvy so far...
