Toronto's Best for Shareable Desserts


When the waiter swings by to ask about dessert, don't hesitate. These spots have sweet eats that are satisfying enough for two (or more).

    The post-dinner libations list is quite impressive on its own, but if you're looking for something more substantial (and shareable), try the butter tart wedge or the sticky toffee date pudding.

  • French Midtown

    We guarantee you won't see desserts like these anywhere else. Try the sea buckthorn parfait, in which a sour berry puree is layered with cream, rosewater and orange blossom jellies, and meringue, and topped with a crushed almond praline.

    At a restaurant with impeccable presentation, the grapefruit givre takes the cake, so to speak. It's a sorbet-filled grapefruit with fresh grapefruit, grapefruit marmalade, rose-flavored Turkish delight, and sesame halvah, and you have to see it to believe it.
