Profile Last Updated: February 13, 2009
One of the most elegant neighbourhoods in Toronto has a place to stay overnight in The French Connection, which takes its influence seriously. Classical music, a grand piano and fireplace set the mood in the lounging area of the house. Private bathrooms, whirlpool baths and king size beds with cotton sheets and cozy duvet comforters assure relaxation. There’s also a perennial garden that blooms in summertime. The bed and breakfast is near Wychwood Park, one of Toronto’s earliest planned communities, filled with heritage homes and a soothing atmosphere. Popular attractions just a short walk nearby include Casa Loma, Spadina House and the Tarragon Theatre.
The French Connection is situated at the top of the downtown core and a convenient ride or adventurous walk away from all that Bloor Street has to offer. And the management doesn’t lack for hints on how Toronto is best enjoyed by its visitors, dishing out advice along with all of the daily delicacies from the kitchen.
Wake Up to French Cooking
The breakfast part of the stay can be just as important as the bed, and The French Connection delivers on both. Gourmet meals are served in the sun- drenched dining room and conversation flows between guests, thanks to the inspiring atmosphere. Croissants and muffins are baked each day, and the “plat du jour” ranges from a herb omelette or spinach and mushroom quiche, French toast or a smoked salmon platter, or poached eggs on a bed of fresh greens bathed with hollandaise. Fruit, yogurt and cereals are also plentiful, alongside juices, coffee that’s always freshly brewed and a selection of teas.
