Manuel Latruwe Belgian Patisserie & Bread Shop

I had no clue Manuel Latruwe Belgian Patisserie & Bread Shop was situated in Victoria Park. I’ve driven by this spot many times and never gave it a second glance. It’s been open for almost two decades! It’s located beside a Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut.

We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon. This place reminds of an old school, fancy style patisserie/bread shop.  At least there’s some free parking out front.

Their hours are very standard for a patisserie.

There’s a small menu of drinks and baguette sandwiches.

Sorbet and ice cream. Would like to try a scoop next time.

Macarons and cakes. Macarons are $2.10/each but get slightly cheaper if you buy more. Individual cakes were $6.50.

Macaron flavours. They had almost two dozen worth! Be prepared to hem and haw.

Cakes looked decadent. They ranged from $20.00 to $30.00 (depending on the size).

Macarons ($26.00 for 12)
DSC00126We were here for one thing and one thing only: macarons. We picked a variety of flavours; from what I can remember, these had a decent texture but neither of the three of us were blown away.
