Just Found A Hidden Gem – Patisserie du Soleil
The perfect cafe tucked away in the heart of Woodbine in the SW is where I visited last Thursday for breakfast. I came across this place doing a U-Turn showing some houses one day and saw this neat little cafe, I told myself that I definitely need to come back and check this place out. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the moment I walked into this cafe, I knew I was in for a truly great experience. Walking up to the counter, the wall menu was huge, lots of choices, coffees, teas, breakfast and lunch. Beside the counter is 2 large displays of French pastries and desserts. To the right of the counter is a ton of in house made Gelato which I didn’t get a chance to try yet.
After my meal I got a chance to speak with the owner and executive pastry chef, it was very nice and refreshing to hear about the passion and love he puts into his gift. Everything is made from scratch and you can tell the high quality in his work. They use the freshest of ingredients and believe in using local foods to support local business. There is also a sister location in Glenmore Landing but in my opinion, you must try this experience here at the Woodbine location first.
I started off with a Chocolate Truffle Mochaccino, which was delicious. It was hard to actually choose what I wanted to try first but the Eggs Florentine stuck out at me (poached eggs served on a bed of sautéed spinach, crumbled bacon, and caramelized shallots, served with toast you can add smoked salmon as well). This was such a beautiful and light dish with the perfect balance of flavours. I also had the opportunity to try a savoury scone hot and fresh, it was absolutely to die for. So the crazy foodie in me, I just had to share this with as many people as I could. So I took home 36 pieces of freshly baked goods to share with my office, friends and family. The cranberry white chocolate scone was a hit! I also got the chance to try the chocolate cinnamon bun and almond croissant, which both were outstanding.
I can’t wait to have business meetings here, family breakfast and lunches, how has it taken me this long to find this absolute gem.
