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 afternoon. 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. 


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).
