Le Matin, the French bakery from Ici Bistro chef and culinary jack-of-all-trades J.P. Challet, is closed. The little pastry shop at Queen and Jones was the east-end’s answer to Clafouti on Queen West: a neighbourhood destination for baguettes, quiche and buttery Sunday morning croissants. Challet hopes to reopen the bakery at a new location sometime in the next six months. Until then, regulars will have to get their sweet fix at nearby Bobette and Belle or Brick Street.
