Bomou Artisanal Bakery
Toronto, ON M4G 3B7
Bomou Artisanal Bakery had its grand opening on March 17, but then sisters and co-owners Azar and Negar Sabzevari had to close up shop, as COVID-19 quarantined Toronto. Despite the rocky start and what was an undoubtedly long list of compromises, the bakery was able to re-open a few months later. Bomou’s signature products include their pistachio croissant and a selection of freshly-baked baguettes. Negar also makes in-house chocolate spread for purchase by the jar, made with sustainable chocolate and roasted hazelnut. Overall, the creations are wide-ranging, from cookies to mousse cakes and even lemonades and jams made from fresh Ontario strawberries. The design of the space is stylish, minimalist, and draws the eye straight to big displays of breads and sweets. While the duo cites similar struggles facing most small businesses — they are confident that their products do a lot of the talking for them. “Every day, we flourish in our savoir-faire [know-how] and take pride in our food quality,” says Azar. “We are [continuing to] share our passion for traditional French bread, viennoiseries, pastries, and chocolates with the people of Toronto.” Bomou Artisanal Bakery is located in the Bayview and Eglinton area.
