Bomou Artisanal Bakery

Bomou is a French pastry shop that specializes in buttery croissants, mousse, bread, and house-made jams. 

The name is a portmanteau of two French words: boulangerie and moulin, essentially labelling itself as a mill bakery. 

bomou torontoSisters Negar and Azar Sabzevari run Bomou together. Negar, who runs the kitchen side of things, says she's been baking since she was four years old. 

bomou torontoTaught by her mother and influenced by the region where they grew up in Iran — Hamadan, a city known for its jams — Negar eventually came to Canada to study French pastries, which led time in France to learn the art of pastry-making.

bomou torontoBomou makes jars of honey with walnuts ($17) or pistachios ($12), and a seasonal quince jam for $12. 

bomou torontoBread is baked in several batches throughout the day, with the first one around 4:30 a.m. There's a focus on sourdough, and Bomou sells full sourdough loaves for $7 or sourdough baguettes for $4.50 each.

bomou torontoThere are also rounds of olive fougasse for $4.50, and full loaves of rye ($9), spelt ($7.50) and a seeded white sourdough variety ($7.90).

bomou torontoIn the glass counter, the bakery sells bon bons filled with ganache in flavours like orange whisky for $2.75 each, or in boxes of 5 or 15, and decadent vanilla strawberry croissant sandwiches. 

bomou torontoThey also have mango and blueberry tarts, cookies, canales, and housemade chocolate bars. 

bomou torontoPistachio is a main ingredient here. The Shahzadeh (which means 'prince' or 'princess' in Farsi) is their signature mousse, $8.90.

bomou torontoTheir Cube Du Chocolat mousse, $8.90, is equally light. It's made with Alunga milk chocolate mousse, 64% guayaquil chocolate ganache, and sits on a chocolate biscuit.

bomou torontoThe standouts at Bomou for me are their ridiculously buttery double-baked croissants.

bomou torontoSame goes for the raspberry croissant, $4.90, a flaky creation that falls apart as you rip it open. 

bomou torontoBomou also has a menu of cold and hot drinks, like tea from Sloane. A latte is a perfect accompaniment for sweet treats.
