  1. It's where I had my first ever bowl of cafe au lait and salad nicoise, at the original location on the East side of Yonge, my gosh it had to be over 25 years ago. That's sad news!

    1. Well, I guess it's the end of a "dinosaur". They were pioneers in T.O., coming to town at a time when no one else offered French pastries/croissants. In that respect, they were lucky because on a different market, like say Montreal, there is now way Patachou's old-style pastries straight from the 50's would have measured up to the competition, let alone been a hit.

      1. the st clair one is already closed! was there under two weeks ago and they said 3 may would be the last day, but i guess that changed...

        i wanted to gorge on palet nougatines today! what's a good alternate source, for future reference?

          Pretty sure they're open tomorrow.

          Thanks for the info on the St. Clair one.
