Gouter allows three people max in the store at a time, has a transparent guard in front of the register, requires staff to inform the business and get tested if feeling sick, has sanitizer at the cash, sanitizes surfaces regularly, and requires and sells masks or can bring your order to the door.

Gouter is a family-run patisserie, boulangerie and chocolaterie initially founded in 2016 by Rodney Alléguède at their original location on Bathurst.

This second location stocks all the pastries and breads the shop is known for, as well as frozen items like ice creams at the back. Alléguède was trained in culinary studies as a chef in Europe, and has worked at Michelin-starred restaurants in France.

The space is small and narrow but bright due to a big front window, with a pop of detail at the back thanks to illustrative graphics.

A Nutella croissant ($4.25) is crunchy with big air bubbles, and feels super luxurious with a generous amount of Nutella inside and top, with a sprinkle of nuts on top as well.

There are also double baked almond croissants ($4) and classic chocolate croissants ($3.50). 

Kouign amanns and raspberry croissants ($4) are top sellers. The kouign amann is made with bread dough layered with butter and sugar, unlike the croissant dough used at many bakeries. It's caramelized in the oven so the outside is very stiff and crispy, and the inside is sweet and gooey.

The raspberry croissant has a sugar glaze on top and a house raspberry jam inside, with is also available to take home jarred.

There are also jarred butternut squash and carrot and ginger soups ($9).

A Paris Brest ($7) is like an eclair on steroids - basically the same fluffy choux pastry, but in a round giant donut shape with very sweet, creamy, toasty hazelnut mousseline inside. There's also a pistachio variety.
