Monsieur Félix & Mr. Norton Cookies

First of all, apologies for the lack of posts these days. I have been ill for quite some weeks and you can rightfully call me "weak sauce" now. Thank you to those that offered me remedies on twitter. You just never know what you'll contract commuting via transit (yes, thank you for coughing on my hair lady)!

But some good can come out of it. We discovered a cookie place! Howard and I was over at my friend's house and there was a box of cookies in her kitchen. We began snacking on them and after our conversation, we had finished the whole box. We were really horrified to realize that we ate a whole box of cookies! But they were so good!

I did some research online and found that the original cookie shop started in Montreal. They're very popular in Quebec and they even have a mobile bakery!

Then I got sick. Two weeks later when I was feeling better, we ventured out to the shop for more!

Markham Town Square
8601 Warden Ave, Unit #16
Markham, ON L3R 0B5

They're on facebook and twitter too!

Guess what we discovered when we went? They sell cupcakes!!! Please ignore the fuzzy spider web that is going over Monsieur Félix in the photo, they were showing their Halloween spirit! =)

As a reminder, this location sells cupcakes on Fridays and Saturdays only. Love the chalk sign because the asterisks make the cupcakes more exciting!

Pretty mini cupcakes that are $1.25 each or $6.00 for 6. It isn't hard to guess what we're going to do here is it? 6 for 6 please!

We took the cupcakes back to my friend's place so that the cupcakes could be divided and conquered. Check out the Halloween cupcake liners and sprinkles! Love the festivity for the Belgian chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream.

Here we have the cinnamon chai cupcake with cinnamon buttercream.

Double chocolate cupcake with Belgian chocolate buttercream topped with a chocolate candy.

Limited time only, the pumpkin spice cupcake with cinnamon buttercream.

The vanilla chocolate cupcake with vanilla chocolate buttercream topped with a white chocolate candy. For some reason I really liked this one, I guess I've been missing marble cupcakes!

PS: We won't leave without tell you our favourite cookies too. Howard's favourite flavour is the Lemon Delight (pictured above). Mine is also the Lemon Delight and the Caramelt. We love that you can taste the lemon in the cookies, they're wonderfully citrus.


  1. What a wonderful little shop! Love their logo.

  2. I'm so jealous of you for being able to visit these gorgeous bakeries! :)

  3. Stephanie - It is cute isn't it?

    Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes] - Aww, you're in an amazing part of the world and I'm jealous of the places you get to see too!

  4. I didn't even realize this shop was there and I used to pass by all the time. Will definitely check it out when I get the chance.

    I've just spend a good few hours reading all your blog posts because I simply adore it! Thanks for helping me procrastinate on work! :)

  5. Jara, always glad to help! Hope you like their cupcakes and cookies too. =)
