The shop that caught my attention and thrilled my senses most on a recent trip to Toronto was a small café on Queens St. named Nadége. Directly across from Trinity Bellwoods Park the area is a wonderful mix of culture and people watching, the perfect place to relax and grab a treat.
The space is welcoming, mostly white with hits of simple bright iconic signage and graphics, letting the mesmerizing colors of their creations take center stage. Thankfully, attendants are quick to assist with recommendations in your inevitable difficulty choosing between the mouth-watering options.
The cafe is the brain child of Nadége Nourian, a pastry chef extrodinaire from Lyon, France. In a brief but effective video on their website she professes “this is my dream”, and a beautifully realized dream it is.
