ABOUT US

Situated in the heart of Parkdale, The Tempered Room is Toronto’s favourite Parisian pâtisserie. Our sun-filled room is the perfect place to enjoy a coffee, read the paper, or have a conversation as the streetcars roll by. We house two separate kitchens, one of which supplies the catering arm of The Tempered Room, while the other supplies the pâtisserie itself.

Grab coffee here a few times a week, occasionally one of their delicious pastry or breakfast sandwich offerings. Highly recommend this joint, and I'm not alone - it's always busy. Still, it's got a comfortable atmosphere and most patrons choose to take out.read more

I can't for the life of me figure out why The Tempered Room's coffee is so bad. Otherwise, it's a great place. Both the savory and sweet treats are delicious, fresh and well made. Really cute shop for a date as well. But trust me, opt for tea.read more

Overall really great quality bakery however I can't recommend any of the flavored croissants (almond, chocolate etc.) as they very dense, heavy and are soggy on the bottom with oil/fat. They are also on the fringe of overwhelmingly sweet. That being said, I love their other pastries - their brioche, tarts, scones and danishes are exceptional.read more

Went in the morning to get some almond croissants and also got some jalapeno corn bread too. I have to say the almond croissant is kind of heavy as it it's very buttery but it tastes very good. However my girlfriend thought it was too buttery. The corn read was quite pleasant and I would highly recommend going here getting some pastries and coffeeread more

One of the best cafes in Toronto full stop, with buttery croissants and plenty of other perfect pastries, awesome lunch options changing up all the time, even fresh loaves of bread from local bakeries. They do catering as well - we had them cater our wedding reception, and it was fantastic ("best I've ever had" said our DJ). Accommodating, professional, and approachable but upscale food. Highly recommended.read more
