The Best Kouign-Amann in Toronto

The best kouign-amann in Toronto are equal parts flaky, buttery and sugary, all folded into one decadent pastry.

The process of making a kouign-amann from start to finish is truly a labour of love. Originating from the northwest Brittany region of France, this French pastry gets its name from the words for cake and butter in the Breton language. This pastry stays true to its name though, as most of it consists of layers of butter and sugar that are usually folded into bread dough. Once it’s baked, the result is a crunchy, flaky, buttery, sugary and caramelized multilayered pastry.
