Delysées: Authentic French Bakery

By Natalia Dziubaniwsky

Macarons, cheesecakes, éclairs, oh my!

I have a serious sweet tooth and a real admiration for the delicate artistry and delicious fine flavours of French pastries. I didn’t have to think twice before attending Delysées Summer Rendezvous event kicking-off its “mini” collection of delectable cakes, cheesecakes, tarts and éclairs.

In addition to launching the new summer “mini” menu, Delysées also introduced a sweet and boozy partnership with The Grange of Prince Edward Winery. This means you can also indulge in limited edition bite-sized treats infused with brut from The Grange Winery.

The hardest part of the evening was deciding between which minis to try and pacing myself between bites so I could sample as many as possible! Each perfectly formed pastry had something different of interest to offer – a bright pop of colour, mini puffs of meringue or swirls of cream filling.

What kind of flavours can you expect from the “mini” Summer Rendezvous Menu?

Berry flavoured cakes and mousses, sweet and salted caramel and pistachio tarts, double dark chocolate and Madagascar vanilla profiteroles and, one of my favourites, fresh lemon cream meringue éclairs. Yum!

Other noteworthy flavours not to miss are their special edition items incorporating flavours from Sloane Fine Tea and sparkling wine.

Delysées has an amazing 44 foot display case which gives you plenty of room to ogle, “oh” and “ah” over its extensive selection. Offering over 20 flavours of daily-made macarons and éclairs, they boasts the biggest selection of macarons and éclairs in Toronto!

Other regular offerings include croissants, gourmet sandwiches, chocolates and espresso drinks and customer order cakes and macaron towers.

All bites from the “mini” menu are priced at $2.45 each. Visit Delysées at 780 King Street West to experience the Summer Rendezvous collection on their seasonal patio.
