The Sweet Escape Patisserie ★★★

Price: $5-10+

This pastry shop is located inside a building at distillery district. Its very casual, sometimes they put out tables and chairs in front of their shop..in a hallway kind of. Its not really a sit down pastry shop, more grab and go. Good place to visit if you happen to be at distillery district for an event.

I usually order their macaroons, which cost $20 for a dozen I think. It’s soft and not too chewy. I love their flavours in chocolate, strawberry and cafe moca especially. Check them out, they added some new flavours and even offer monogramming services!

They sell sandwiches, cupcakes, cakes, cookies and other desserts with some vegan and gluten free options. They cater and do personal cakes. See website for more details on their services.
