If waiting in hour-long lines isn’t part of your ideal weekend plans then we have good news. Le Beau, Dundas Street East’s newest and most popular French patisserie, has announced that it will reopen on July 18.
Opened in December of 2019, Le Beau only had a few months to make an impression before a forced closure due to COVID-19. Yet, with its expertly laminated, uniquely-flavoured croissants, seasonal Danish and sophisticated, inventive desserts, that was more than enough time for Le Beau to garner a devoted following of adoring fans. Helmed by French-trained pastry chef Olga Spivak, the shop’s bright, airy space is elegant, minimalist and the perfect canvas for a pastry case full of Gallic delights.
Since closing in March, Le Beau has run weekly pop-ups at its Dundas location. With a limited amount of pastries on offer, lines have often stretched around the block with late-comers missing out on sold-out items.
Starting this weekend, though, the shop will be reopening from Wednesdays to Sundays from 9-5 p.m. with the patio open for coffee, lunch and treats. Two new sandwiches, one smoked salmon and one with turkey, brie and pear, will join the menu as part of the celebration.
As items are still first come, first served, we can’t guarantee that you’ll finally score that coveted kouign amann. What we can assure is that, no matter what you try, you’ll discover something astonishingly delicious. With any luck, you won’t even have to wait too long to get it.
