While popular Belgian bakery Le Pain Quotidien may be an international success, it failed to make a go of it in Toronto, shuttering its doors less than three years after opening here. Still, a local cake company thinks it can make a success out of the European brasserie experience in the spot once claimed by Quotidien. Patisserie Cocoa is set to open up an eatery as early as this month.
As a traditional brasserie (a mix between casual and fine dining), the place will offer specialty coffees, pastries, desserts and a full breakfast and lunch menu. According to manager Colin Anderson, the plan is to keep adding more menu items until the fall.
