You can eat here, and the tables are fine for a quick snack. But this is truly a pastry and bakery. The croissants are perhaps among the best in the city. The eclairs and others are divine. So, look, buy and take home to enjoy. Come early, as they sell out.

I wish I could put into words... To start with, I became enamoured with Opera cakes when working as an assistant to a high class patissier in the French Alps so perhaps I am a bit too harsh as a critic but I was so disappointed by the lack of authenticity (and quality). Unfortunately, I made the mistake of buying... More

I've visited La Cigogne plenty of times. Food is consistently perfect. Service is consistently slow. I suppose I should only visit when I have more than an hour for a cup of tea and croissant.

I wanted to share how we have been dropping in at La Cigogne before long Friday trips to cottage country. Rather than lose time stopping for greasy fast food dinners on the trip north, I have ordered take out sandwiches we consume in the car. And la Cigogne makes some excellent classic sandwiches, for example 'La Parisienne', with ham, cheese... More

Desserts are amazing! Very pricey but worth it once and a while. You need to try the prince noir if your a chocolate lover...simply the best out there. Lunch is ok...baguettes with cold cuts or they do have amazing quiche.

We needed a birthday cake for a friend and bought a St. Eve cake. It is a confection consisting of crusty almond sponge and roasted hazelnut butter cream, with a layer of dark chocolate inside. To say it was superb is almost an understatement. I primarily go to La Cigogne for coffee and a piece of pastry, but to get... More

Is La cigogne best on Bayview for coffee and pastry or is Rahier? Both are very good, but I'm inclined to give the nod to La cigogne because the space is nicer. The opportunity to refill your coffee is welcome; all the pastries I have tried have been really good. Recommended!

Gorgeous food... tastes good too. Really a bakery but has about 30 seats, good coffee and sandwiches. Some incredible pastries and the quiche is perfect.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
The North End is a nucleus of specialty food restaurants and shops, especially around its Mount Pleasant Village area. Frequented by antiquers for its numerous collectable shops, furniture spots, and oddity stores, the North End is a maverick of the quaint and quality. Vintage toy stores, accessory shops, and cinemas welcome perusers to step back in time, while the wide pedestrian squares and the large medical and business community inject it with a dose of modernity. With numerous cafes and Toronto's greatest number of independent booksellers, it isn't uncommon to see folks in this area at their leisure, reading outdoors and in eateries, and taking life a bit more slowly – even if it's only during their lunch break.
