Maman Toronto Classes Up First Canadian Place

POPULAR CAFÉ MAMAN BRINGS SOUTH-OF-FRANCE FLAIR TO THE FINANCIAL DISTRICT

Maman Toronto First Canadian Place Financial District

Seeking respite from the harried pace of life and business on Bay Street? Take your breakfast, lunch or coffee break to Maman, a Riviera-chic café and eatery tucked away on the mezzanine level of the First Canadian Place bank tower. Chef Armand Arnal’s Southern-France-by-way-of-SoHo spot (it originated in New York City) opened earlier this summer and gained a loyal following for its fresh, homestyle recipes, ranging from remarkably light quiches to hearty sandwiches to flavour- and nutrient-packed salads. Maman’s more sinful options, of course, are similarly sought-after: decadent nutty chocolate chunk and Oreo-inspired cookies—among other things—make for the perfect accompaniment to a mid-morning espresso or afternoon cup of tea. And for those who just can’t stay away, the café is also open for weekday post-5 p.m. cocktails.  —Craig Moy
