Le Gourmand, Late with the Rent [Updated]

Le Gourmand termination notice

Le Gourmand, the little French cafe on Spadina between Queen and Richmond, has been locked down by the landlord after falling behind in rent by over $25,000. The unhappy news about the place that I said had “The Best Damned Chocolate Chip Cookie in the City” was brought to me by fellow HacklabTO member Stefan Arentz, who took the picture of the notice on their door above.

Le Gourmand have two other locations: one at Bloor and Yonge, and one at Yonge and Eglinton. I have no idea if they closed as well, but the fact that their site is down does not bode well.

In memory of this nice little cafe, here’s the photo montage I made of Le Gourmand a couple of years back:

Update: Wouldn’t you know it, BlogTO wrote about it on Sunday in an article I missed.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! Just on Sunday I was in the area tempted to get a cookie, and I decided against it! Now I will never have my chance!

Also, the Yonge and Eg one closed down ages ago.

Just checked – Yonge & Bloor location also closed now. Was open last week.

BTW, I recommend the chocolate chip cookies at F’Coffee on Queen E at Carroll. Fresh baked, small batch.

Yeah, Yonge and Eg closed down a good few months ago…. for non-payment of rent.

It’s a pity. Their brunch at that location was phenomenal.
