ISO good croissants and cheese the north part of the GTA

Hi all, I hope this doesn't come across as another flat "where I can find..." post (but it is).

I'm hoping to find these things somewhere in the Richmond Hill/Markham/Thornhill/Vaughn area, although any suggestions involving venturing out further are also welcome.

- Croissants that are comparable to those at Celestin, Rahier or Jules. Which is to say, flakey, buttery compact, non-fluffy, non-bloated. I haven't come across any individual bakeries that make them, and all the Brunos/Longos/Loblaws etc. don't have what I am looking for. In fact, so far what I have seen in those places are *twice* as big as what I have in mind!

- Cheese shops that have more the "artesanal" type of cheeses from Europe, just like what we find at Alex Farms, WH etc. in Toronto. I'm looking for a place with more variety than just the same brands we see in the stores I mentioned above. I have already visited Concord Food Centre and Grand Cheese on Yonge.

Any hidden gems I might have missed in the area? Thanks for sharing.
