Cheap Eat of the Week: tea and macarons at Queen West’s Nadège Patisserie


Published:

Saturday afternoons are meant for brunch at The County General, then a stroll through Trinity Bellwoods Park ­­­­ — or at least past it to pick up some goodies, whether it’s a coffee stop at White Squirrel, a croissant stop (if you’re lucky) at Clafouti or over to Nadège Patisserie for fine French pastries and a colourful display of macarons fitting for the hues of fall.

Nadège Patisserie, founded by partners Morgan McHugh and executive chef Nadège Nourian in 2009, has become a favourite among lovers of French macarons in the city. These sweets are a tasty afternoon treat for Saturday afternoons. At $2.15 each (or $25 for a dozen), we sampled the chai and Earl Grey macarons (flavours change seasonally), along with a chai tea ($3) to round it out. There are also homemade marshmallows, chocolates and tiny but perfect cakes and pastries.

Last year, Nadège Patisserie opened its second location in Rosedale, and this holiday season, the team will launch an online boutique on Dec. 1 at nadege-patisserie.com to make gift-buying for your sweets-loving friends a little easier.

Nadège Patisserie, 780 Queen St. W., 416-368-2009
