For 35 years, Toronto patisserie and café Patachou has been sustaining Rosedalers (and, more recently, St. Clair West residents) with simple, comforting French food. Now the family-run business is closing. Talking to The Grid, owner Elizabeth Sidi explained that it was time to take a break from the grueling bakers’ hours. “It’s been a long run and we were lucky to enjoy it very much,” she said. “But now, to get up at 4 a.m., is too much.” Fans of the bakery-café have two months to get their fill of French onion soup and flaky almond croissants: both locations close on May 3rd, 2014.
