The Tempered Room
Located at Queen Street West, The Tempered Room is a croissant haven in the 6ix. Their menu has everything from Ferrero Rocher croissants, chocolatine to their signature Croissant aux amandes (stuffed with housemade frangipane).
In addition to being to a popular spot for all-day breakfast and brunch, their croissants are one of a kind too. The uniqueness of the croissant is a result of a three-day process of dough-making and baking, which enhances the flavour.
