Maman, a café and bakery in SoHo New York, has opened a second location in Toronto, and serves family-inspired recipes from the South of France and North America, bringing to life childhood favourites, both savoury and sweet. The inspiring, ever-evolving menu features dishes created from the highest quality, locally-sourced ingredients, and changes every day.


Maman is open Monday through Friday for breakfast, lunch and cinq-á-sept. Menu items include an assortment of pastries and desserts (including their renowned chocolate chunk cookie), coffee, a selection of artisanal breads, hearty farm-fresh salads, quiches, sandwiches and soups—all made fresh daily for dine-in or takeaway. After work, delicious bites, signature cocktails and wines is served at the bar.


Maman is a melding of the partners’ (Armand Arnal, head chef at Michelin star restaurant La Chassagnette in the South of France; Benjamin Sormonte, entrepreneur and restaurateur; Elisa Marshall, event planner; Laure de La Moussaye, marketing strategist) fondest memories in the kitchen combined with their mutual passion for delivering exceptional food within an artful and warm setting, a ‘home away from home’ for their guests.


Maman is located at First Canadian Place in Toronto’s Financial District (between Bay and York).
