When Jeff and I were in the Yonge/Sheppard area, an area we rarely find ourselves in, we decided to pay a visit and get some stuff to take home. The bakery is self-serve style with some seating and you can also order beverages like coffee or some Chatime favourites.
I brought home:
Matcha Croissant ($3.50) – butter croissant with matcha. One of their popular product is the cream-filled croissants. This one is not cream-filled, but baked with matcha. I wouldn’t put it on my top 5 favourite croissant list (it didn’t have the butteriness of really good croissant), it had some matcha flavour that I always enjoy.
Earl Grey Tea Flute ($3.90) – Earl grey tea, unsalted butter, granulated sugar. My favourite out of the stuff I’ve got/tried. Think of it as a slice of bread you slather butter on, except the butter is infused with earl grey tea, and the flavour is very prominent. A good choice for any earl grey tea lover.
Matcha Mille Crêpe Cake ($7.90) – delicate matcha crêpe, layered with ceremonial grade matcha infused custard crème. When I saw the crepe cake, we decided to eat this at the bakery. It’s drier than other crepe cakes I’ve tried, I just felt there wasn’t a lot of cream in between the layers of crepe. It was good, but better can be had elsewhere.
It’s a little pricey; baked goods are $3 and up. Not a place for everyday baked goods, but some of the products they offer sounds and looks interesting to try.
Edit: Went back to Bake Code for those lava cream filled croissants. They are about $3.50 to $5+ each. Quite expensive, but there are a few standout ones.
Thai Milk Tea Croissant. This is one of the standout ones. We had this twice where the second we’ve tried, the cream had a sour taste and had a curdled appearance (it shouldn’t taste sour nor look clumpy)… we ended up throwing it away because it likely went bad.
Chocolate Hazelnut Croissant. If you like Nutella, you’ll like this.
Charcoal Matcha Custard Croissant.
Chatime Roasted Milk Tea Custard Croissant. Another standout one.
The croissants are not as buttery (although it is a butter croissant) and one gripe I have is, they put your pastries in plastic bags; I would expect if you buy a good amount of (not cheap) baked goods , they would put it in a box. The croissants have a sticky top and it sticks to the plastic bags. No bueno.
