'Nugateau' is a Toronto patisserie that features a unique assortment of eclairs. This innovative pastry shop nestled in the city's Queen West neighborhood serves fresh eclairs -- and eclairs only -- daily, with a rotating selection of sweet and savory options.

The pastries are filled with white chocolate–based cream, complemented by an array of fruits, teas and nut pastes, topped off with vibrant glazes like bruléed meringue, edible gold shortbread and candied bacon. As far as the flavored fillings are concerned, some standout include Mango Passion Fruit and Cardamom, Persian Pistachio, Tahitian Vanilla and Japanese Matcha. Each eclair at Nugateau is made in-house, with 75% real fruit, adding natural sweetness and a burst of freshness with each bite. On weekends, savory options are provided, including Fois Gras éclairs with roasted hazelnut.

Capitalizing on the growing popularity of fusion cuisine and experimental desserts, Nugateau offers refined and elegant alternatives to typical sweets and pastries.
