"Sweet Note Dessert" - Gem of a find in Markham and offering the BEST Souffle in the GTA, period!!

Charles Yu | Nov 4, 2013 03:43 PM

In the mood for a great dessert Souffle? This newly opened cozy little dessert boutique in Markham offers IMHO, the best tasting French Souffle in the GTA!! Better than Didier ( now closed ), Ici Bistro, Auberge Du Pommier or occasionally in Splendido, "Sweet Notes" Souffle is nothing short of a 'Master Piece'
With awards garnered from places as far as Hong Kong and Japan, the lady pastry chef owner uses only organic ingredients and free range eggs in her creation. During this 'pre-grand opening' period, for eating in, only French Souffle, Creme Brulee, Molten Chocolate Cake, Bottled Milk Pudding and a Cake of the day are being offered.

For our afternoon tea today, my wife and I ordered a 'Vanilla Souffle with Mango Sauce' and a 'Chocolate Souffle with Guava Sauce'. Being a Monday and since we ordered over $10 worth of food, a complimentary cup of organic coffee was offered. A very nice gesture!

How was the Souffle?? Well, I'll just let my photos do the talking!! Perfect in form and with correct sweetness, the interior was fluffy and light as air. The freshly baked free range egg and butter aroma of the Vanilla version was particularly pronounced. However, what really stole the show were the two 'non sugar added sauces!! Using fresh puree from 3 different types of mangoes and 2 different types of Guava, the taste and aroma was stunning. At $8.75 a piece, this unbelievably good dessert, was a steal!!

With high quality standard products such as these, no wonder the owner adopted an open kitchen format for patrons to admire the work in progress.

On our way out, the lady chef/owner came out to thank us and invite us to return to try out her Macaroons which she claimed is better than 'Lauduree' but less sweet! With a claim like this, who can resist?!!

With such superior products, once the words are out, I am sure businesses in the newly opened 'Paramount Tiramisu Cafe' and Ruelo Patisserie, across the road in Time Square, will suffer big time!!
