Best French Bakery in West Toronto
Hoping to find some direction here.
I usually frequent Portuguese bakeries for the sweets but I have been really looking for a good place to get some classic French pastries and fresh croissants. The Portuguese try but it is usually not successful. Bonus points for west of Yonge and midtown.
Is Pain Perdu on St Clair good?
+1 on Pain Perdu, and they do have the best mille feuille I have ever had, but I went there one morning last week around 10:30am to get one and they were all frozen. The baker told me he has to freeze them in order that they can be sliced (makes sense) and he said to wait 15 minutes before eating it in order to let it warm up. But 45 min later it was still half frozen! So, if you want one to eat right away beware of buying one in the morning or realize you have to wait a while to eat it.
Aside from that, he's upped his price on them since I bought one 3 months ago. I paid almost $6.50 with tax for one. Am I the only one who thinks the price is out of line (notwithstanding how good they are)? Also they looked smaller than they used to be. At that price I don't think it's a treat I am going to indulge in much any more.
