Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: the smoked salmon and cream cheese croissant from Nadège Patisserie

Now that spring has finally, yes, sprung, packs of hipsters are hitting the park scene hard. Trinity Bellwoods is particularly rife with them: nonchalant girls decked out in stripes sip Bellwoods Brewery brews while sunning themselves on the grass. Checking out the park-side happenings is de rigueur; once you’ve had your fix, Nadège is a great way to bookend your visit.

Glossy sandwiches beckon from behind the glass counter; our pick is the salmon and cream cheese number ($8). Slender slices of the smoked fish –– procured from Nova Scotia –– are tucked into a buttery croissant along with wafer-thin cukes and dill-studded cream cheese.

With a macaron or two stepping in for dessert, and a patio angled towards the park, the eatery provides the perfect perch from which to play the ultimate flaneur.
