Patachou is closing its pair of Toronto patisseries
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.
