I'm just remembering Toronto some 10-15 years back and thinking that there doesn't seem to be anymore restaurants with a take home counter like there was at Arlequin, Oliver's etc. I used to buy the little checkerboard cookies after a meal at Arlequin and have them with coffee when I got home. It was a special little ritual that seemed to transport me from the daily hardships of North American life to a small, french cafe in my own home. Does anyone know of a place that carries it's own selection of pastries, breads etc. for taking home. I'm not necessarily talking about take-out service.
