Cambridge, MA: Royal Pastry Shop


Location: 738 Cambridge St., East Cambridge, MA Having just moved to Boston, one of our explorations took us to the Royal Pastry Shop on Cambridge Street.  We chose a very simple chocolate cupcake. It was divine.  Open since 1941, there are now two other locations feeding locals delicious American and Italian pastries.  I’m looking forward to being … Continue reading

NEW: L’eat


Location: 410 Adelaide St W http://www.leatcatering.com/home.htm In the cursed location where Zimbel’s Cafe and before that,  Mosaic used to be, L’eat Express is the newest addition to the building beside Toronto School of Art.  Herbal Infusions is faring quite well so far, so maybe there is hope for L’eat (such a difficult name to wrap my head around.  Sometimes … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Paris: Paul’s


Location: Outside the Louvre. Paul, the French bakery (since 1889) came highly recommended by our friend A, so when we discovered a kiosk outside the Louvre, we stood right in line! I must say, eating a chocolate chip baguette and tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich under the shade of a tree in the Carrousel Gardens was one … Continue reading

Michel’s Baquette


Location: (Yorkdale Mall) 3401 Dufferin Street, Toronto http://www.michelsbaguette.com One of my favourite “go-to” bakeries in Toronto is Michel’s.  It’s an European-inspired cafe/bakery and there are several locations in Ontario.  It reminds me of Paul’s in Paris.  No nonsense pastries, sandwiches and cafe lattes. It’s the perfect spot for a giggly group of girls women to go … Continue reading

Black Forest Pastry Shop


Location: 184 Lakeshore Road East Oakville, ON L6J I’m happy to announce that I have found possibly the best apple pie, ever. It exists at Black Forest Pastry Shop in Oakville and is only $12.99! After popping it into the oven for a few minutes, it came out flaky yet melted in the mouth. The … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Boston: Mike’s Pastry


Location: 300 Hanover Street Boston, MA http://www.mikespastry.com Is it touristy? Yes.  The woman behind the counter insisted that we take a plastic “Mike’s Pastry” bag for our box even though we had a bag we were going to put it into.  Nothing like advertising by carrying their logo, right? Is it ridiculously crowded, ALL THE … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Boston: Tory Row


Location: 3 Brattle Street Cambridge, MA http://www.toryrow.us YOU GUYS, I’VE FOUND MY FAVOURITE FRENCH TOAST! It’s at Tory Row, in Cambridge, Massachussettes! At first I was a little dismayed by it’s small portion size, making sharing all the more difficult. But with the blueberry jam and the New England maple syrup, and for only $7, … Continue reading

NEW: O&B Canteen


Location: 330 King St W, Toronto Another one of Peter Oliver and Michael Bonacini’s babies, O&B is part cafeteria, part full-service restaurant, with all the wood, glass and metal (and gorgeous pops of orange Le Creuset dishes) that entails opening up a restaurant these days, it’s also in the new Bell Lightbox building. In the … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Paris: Boulangerie Patisserie Coudrier Geffroy


Location: 77 avenue Kléber, Paris (16th Arr) This was my First Taste of Paris: I think I did well. We stopped by this bakery on our way to our hotel…and they line-up was huge!  Am not surprised at all.  We wanted to go back again, but got distracted by some sort of tower in the … Continue reading
