French Food To Go

This is part 3 of a 3 part series on French dining in Toronto

Forget about sitting in a restaurant, how about lounging in front of the tele with some coq au vin, or at home under the covers with some great French pastries?

In almost every neighbourhood, you can get some excellent French to go. Here is a quick look at what you can get and where:

Queen Street West West:
Clafouti has to-die-for croque-monsieur that is great to go...on second thought, all of their croissants are.

King Street West:
Atelier Thuet for super-posh quiche.

Rosedale & St. Clair West:
Patachou not only carries desserts that you will dream about days later...but coq au vin that is one of the best roasted chicken's for take-away in the city.

Yorkville:
Crepes a GoGo serves the busy Yorkville crowd with a customizable meals.

Mount Pleasant:
Le Comptoir de Celestin delivers tarts that will surely melt in your mouth. They occasionally carry ingredients for duck confit as well.

Y&E / Davisville:
LaBambouche is a patisserie with roots from Japan. Fleurdelys Patisserie is a traditional french pastry shop that also serves fresh quiche daily.

Queen Street East / Broadview:
Bonjour Brioche - their name says it all.

Leslieville:
Leslieville Cheese Market & Fine Foods for savoury beef bourguignon.

PS. Forget about making a reservation at over-packed resto's this Valentine's day, pick-up a fabulous french take-home meal.
