Just Desserts

Just Desserts closes last restaurant in Toronto

The timer's run out on Just Desserts as the much-maligned sweet eatery will shutter its one surviving outpost this weekend. But, the restaurant won't go quietly; the store at Yonge and Wellesley will host closing celebrations starting today at 7:30 PM.

In the mid-1990s, Just Desserts had more than 25 franchises across the GTA. The chain rose to notoriety, however, after a highly publicized 1994 robbery at the Davenport and Bedford Road store left one female patron shot dead.

The Star reports that remaining franchise owner Robert Fernandes opened his Just Desserts restaurant one year after the shooting. 20 years later, and he'll close his store for good, putting an end to what was once an iconic local chain of businesses.
