French Corner Patisserie, Great Patisserie and Bakery

Just finished purchasing a baguette from French Corner Patisserie at 224 Dundas W, Mississauga. The bread here is really good, the baguette is not like a baguette from Loblaw’s, even though Loblaw’s baguette is not all that bad. It is just that French Corner Patisserie baguette is far better. One issue I have with most baguette’s are that they have a pale crust, which means the curst becomes soft which is something that is not generally wanted in a baguette, you know that Wonder Bread style crust. The crust is very crispy and a golden almost dark crust, which means it is chewy. And the bread is soft and a slight sourness, not unlike a mild sour dough flavour. The bread here is baked properly, a nice golden brown crust that is chewy and wonderful mild sour dough. I took a little bite on the drive home and had a hard time not eating the whole baguette!

Before the wonderful baguette, I had a decent Americano, two chocolate macarons and my daughter had a chocolate croissant. The Americano had a nice crema, but the macarons are one of the best around imho. The ganache was real ganache, just cream and chocolate; the macarons are just really really good. The chocolate croissant was also very good, my daughter ate 1.5 croissants.

The display case has a wonderful selection of all different types of cakes, tarts, even Belgian cookies. Most places either do half decent bread or patisserie, not this place; they do great bread and great patisserie! It’s rare to find a place that does both really good.
