Back in late February, we revealed that we were building a new restaurant in Downtown Markham. Those photos showcased the beginning stages of this new dessert spot, and the crew have brought it a long way since then. Take a look below to see where we are at, and stay tuned to learn when it’ll be officially open for business!
