Where to buy sheets of butter puff pastry in Toronto

I use to buy the frozen sheets of puff pastry at Instant Caterer in St. Lawrence market. Alas, they are no longer there.

Where else in can I get sheets other than a grocery store. Any other bakeries in the downtown Toronto / Beaches / Danforth village areas?

Thank you,

  1. A little outside the area you requested, but I believe Rahier in Bay view sells them.

    1. Athens on Danforth sells their phyllo.


      1. JB, Loblaws and their associated stores sell a frozen PC all-butter puff pastry. It's packed in a roll and ready to use after a brief thaw. I used it successfully for bouchées, tiny vol au vents that rose very nicely.

            Just be aware that it's not just butter in the product:

            "Enriched wheat flour, water, unsalted butter, vegetable oils (canola, modified palm and palm kernel), salt."

            I have yet to find pre-made, all butter puff pastry dough.

              And you're confident a commercial product from a bakery is different? Right...

              1. re: Kagemusha

                it might be. . .if available, small batch all-butter puff pastry would probably be better than factory produced pc products. i honestly don't know where to find the former, but i have tried the latter, and while it is servicable, i didn't find it particularly delicious.

                besides, the op mentioned that he wanted a source that was not from a grocery store. . .

                  "If available" is the key phrase. If you've ever made it, real deal puff pastry isn't cranked out. Few bakeries have the time, staff, and demand for DIY and tend to buy it. If they sold it to you, I doubt you'd see the ingredient list. If they made it, why sell it raw?

                  1. re: Kagemusha

                    you're probably correct on all counts, but the op did stipulate not from a grocery store. . .so what options are there?

            Yes, I like this product a lot. Works really well.

          3. Can't vouch for the quality, but I was walking by Yvonne Bakery in the Plaza at Don Mills (across from the Science Centre) - and they had a sign advertising puff pastry available.

            1. So definitely out of your preferred zone, but Ma Maison on Dundas West @ Royal York Road will usually sell you some if you ask ... it's not on their "menu" but they make it for their own purposes ... NOT cheap (but VG)!
