Maman à Table

Located at First Canadian Place on the mezzanine level is Maman Toronto. They are a Parisian-inspired cafe in the heart of the financial district offering a taste of Southern France. The savoury and sweet menu changes daily, featuring an assortment of dishes created by Chef Armand Arnal. Having been to Paris a year ago, I have come to adore Maman's detailed decor. They have replicated the allure of sitting in a Parisian cafe from the flowers, tables adorned with cute bunny ceramics, wooden communal tables down to the mosaic tile flooring. Perfect for a lunch visit.

Maman Toronto recently launched “Maman à Table” where diners are able to enjoy a $20 prix-fixe menu every Friday afternoon. Indulge in a three course menu featuring a starter, a choice of main, and finishing off with a selection of mini sweet bites and drip coffee or tea of your choice. The weather may be cooling off, but you can still enjoy this menu every Friday from 11:30 am to 2 pm all season on the fully licensed patio or inside the cafe.

For the starter, one has the option to choose between a cold summer soup “grilled tomato gazpacho with sweet red peppers & cucumber” or de-constructed avocado toast. I opted for the avocado toast as my starter. I enjoyed the DIY aspect of the avocado toast, and it's a healthier option, so that is always an added bonus.

Croque Maman - with Parisian Ham & Comté

I have tried the Croque Maman on several occasions, so I got the daily quiche instead. There were three different choices to select from, and I opted for the Ham and Cheese Quiche - served with mixed greens, as my main. The quiche was excellent with its flaky yet buttery pastry exterior loaded with a creamy filling mixed with ham and cheese. It was a downright delicious quiche.

We ended our Maman à Table experience with some Mini Sweet Bites from Cafe Gourmand. These satisfying bite-sized treats were great to nibble on to satisfy my sweet tooth without overindulging in sugar.
