Cheap Eat of the Week: Bonjour Brioche’s blueberry custard royale


Published:

In an effort to enjoy the last few weeks of beautiful biking weather (when it’s just warm enough to ride, but not so cold that your hands need mittens), we made a brunch stop out on Queen East. Riding down the extravagant Sherbourne bike lanes (can we take a second to just say how sad it is that there are so few of these in the city?), our destination, like many brunching east-enders’, was Bonjour Brioche.

At a place with a name like that, you’re not likely to leave the premises without trying the famous brioche, or the croissants, breads or other pastries. Which one to choose? Well, there’s a regular brioche and then there’s the fluffy, buttery brioche royale ($1.95), with your choice of lemon raspberry or, as pictured above, blueberry custard, finished with a dusting of irresistible powdered sugar.

Bonjour Brioche, 812 Queen St. E., 416-406-1250
