Restaurant with best desserts in Toronto/GTA

Hi guys,

I was wondering what are some restaurants that serve a really good, special, or more unique dessert choices? I want to center my dinner choices to places that serve good desserts. Price is not an issue, I want both low and higher end restaurants. Thanks in advance for the help!

  1. The salted caramel pudding with chocolate meringue I had at Campagnolo was delicious.

    1. We love desserts and I always finish a meal with something sweet. I've been very happy with everything I've had at Frank AGO, the only exception was the apple prune turnover I had recently because they used too much cardamon, otherwise a great dessert. Steve Song, a name pastry chef, is currently at Carisma. I love his banana tart. Scaramouche has a much respected pastry chef, I forget her name. We had a dessert tasting when she was at Pangaea and I thought they were ok but not great. I've always had good desserts at Grace, others may disagree with this, but their pastry chef is Dustin's girlfriend and he has left, so I don't know if she's still there. Everything I've had from Soma is world class, but it's not really a restaurant. We had a great donut and carrot ice cream at Earth on Bloor, can't speak for all their desserts. I hope this helps a little.

      1. I don't know about good as I haven't been myself, and the board reviews are mixed, but you might want to consider Stock, Trump Tower for their Chocolate Lab, which fits your request for unique.

        1. Second Scaramouche.
          Zee Grill and Starfish have great desserts.
          I like the passionfruit genoise on Splendido's current menu. Haven't tried their other desserts.

          1. re: prima

            Much agree on Zee Grill. I'm not keen on their seafood based on my one experience but the dessert was heavenly.

          2. from my experience, not just based on one dessert at a restaurant but trying a variety on the menu, I would say splendido. Was there a couple months ago as well as late last year and dished where beutiful and tasted amazing. A cheesecake of sorts in a more modern way, not deconstructed thou., a choc. and peanut dessert was delicious.
