Finally, Alain Coumonts globetrotting bakery/café chain is rolling into our fair city.
Le Pain Quotidien's first Toronto outpost will offer its famous slabs of chewy organic sourdough and melt-in-your-mouth croissants plus scrummy preserves, snacks and spreads.
Commune around massive country tables for a lunch of Mediterranean-inspired tartines or platters of prawns, smoked salmon, guacamole, humus and tabouleh.
And hey, why not bag a brioche or two for the road?
Atkins? What a Croque!
