Pâtisserie La Cigogne moved into the neighbourhood a little while ago, futher upping the ante for businesses in our little neck fo the Danforth.
What used to be a decent Italian restaurant now boasts the most amazing pastries, cakes and breads. I know, because I had three of their desserts tonight, all of which were delightful.
Ok, delighful doesn’t cut it but delectable is close. Ridiculously indulgent is closer.
The three I brought home to my very excited four year and happy wife were:
Dark Chocolate Mousse filled with Mixed Berry oCulis finished with a Dark Choclate Glaze
Crispy Praline Crust, Roasted Hazelnut Coffee Butter Cream Dark Choclate Mousse
Orange Flavoured Choclated Mousse with Grand Marnier Crème Brûlée Filling
To say we were sated at the end of our tasting would be an understatement.
On top of the wonderful treats, the staff were very friendly.
I just hope that the expansive nature of the building isn’t too much of a burden for this bakery. I’d hate to see it go away.
