Much to the dismay of Toronto’s macaron-loving hoards, Butter Avenue Patisserie and Café recently announced the closure of its brick and mortar spot at Queen Street and Spadina Avenue. An Instagram post let customers know that the store would close after business on May 16.
Originally opened uptown in 2011, Butter Avenue’s sophisticated design and elegant indulgences swiftly became some of Toronto’s most popular, leading to a second location on Queen St., in 2014. Owned by Tina Su, a pastry chef trained in classical French techniques, and her brother Calvin, Butter Avenue’s traditional pastries and chocolates boasted creative, international flavours, and a rainbow of glorious colour.
Though both locations of Butter Avenue Patisserie and Café have now closed, a limited menu of pastries and macarons is still available for order at butteravenue.com. Orders are available for in-store pickup from the company’s Markham headquarters or can be delivered for a minimal fee. Diehard fans can also visit sister spot, Butter Baker, for their French-pastry-fix.
