Multicoloured macarons and other mini-confections at a new patisserie on King West
Delysées, a contemporary French bakery at King and Tecumseth, was inspired by modern pastry shops in Paris. The pristine space is filled with eye-catching details like metallic chairs by French designer Philippe Starck, a glass-walled cake decorating room and a $20,000 refrigerated case displaying rows of impossibly pretty desserts: cream-filled choux pastries, chocolate croissants (baked fresh every hour) and dainty macarons in flavours like blueberry-lavender and lime-basil. For lunch, fresh baguettes come stuffed with country ham and brie, or chèvre and chives. Open seven days a week.
