Kensington’s Millie Crêperie has opened a sister shop, also specializing in French-inspired Japanese-style pastries, at Adelaide and Spadina. It’s the newest in a string of Asian-influenced bakeries (Kekou Gelato, Lucullus, Uncle Tetsu) to open downtown. Owner Christinn Hua also moved her production facility to the new 700-square-foot space, which is a big upgrade from her wee flagship in the market. The Oxley Street–facing storefront is a candy store, bakery and creamery in one, the display cases loaded with freshly made gelato; green tea, black sesame and yuzu cheesecake tarts; Japanese pudding cups (like upside-down crème caramel); and Hua’s signature mille-crêpe cake in many tempting flavours (though we say go for champagne. Because, champagne).
