Tell us what situation isn’t always improved by dessert. Go ahead, we’ll wait. When you’re working, it’s good to take breaks. Step out, stretch your legs, get a coffee… That’s all well and good, but what about exploring sweeter temptations? 

You may know the Toronto Financial District as a business hub where suited professionals flock. But did you know it also has a bustling foodie scene? There’s gourmet coffee, cutting-edge restaurants, and delicious dessert spots with tasty treats for every price point. 

We’re talking French patisserie that will transport you to the twilight streets of Paris in a single bite. Italian bakeries that will have you suddenly speaking with hand gestures and rolling your Rs. Massive cookies that will make you want to skip down the street. If you couldn’t already tell, we’re pretty passionate about dessert.

Here are 9 dessert spots in the Toronto Financial District you should seriously check out.
