Had to make a stop at the Famous Persian Man on our way through Tbay. Despite the reviews of rude staff - the lady working was very pleasant & clearly works hard serving customers all day. I love the simplicity of this place, and the products are DELICIOUS 💕 we got strawberry & chocolate Persians, along with their little peach dessert. Feeling lucky to get my hands on some of these & take some home for the family. A special stop on our long road trip.
Whenever roadtripping, I try to sample local sandwich shops because sandwiches make the best thing to eat when on the road. My third time driving thru Thunder Bay from Calgary. I wanted to try something different. Spotted on a site about this local pastry. I was intrigued - the pink icing convinced me. Didn’t realize it was next to a deli (major win). Proceeded to get a ham & cheese sandwich. It was actually really good. Lots of fresh vegetables and good amount of meat and cheese. Then of course I tried the Persian for dessert. The pastry was soft and delectable. Not overly sweetened but it was just right. The icing was not too shabby either. Was expecting a bit more fruity taste to it. I’d give it 4.85/5. I will swing by again the next time I am in town. I can not go through Thunder Bay and miss this little gem of a bakery slash delicatessen. Don’t miss out!
Someone drove all the way from Thunder Bay to Mississauga to drop this off for me and they were slightly soft, so that means when made fresh they are even softer… hence why i am giving them a 4 star. These aren’t authentic (i am Persian) but they are okay, wish they had more cinnamon cuz the icing overtakes the flavour a bit too much. And also I heard they are pretty popular in town 🍩🇮🇷🍁
The Persian man has the best Persians. If in thunder Bay, it's great to get it from here. Always so fresh. I love getting it for the Alpha team! Yum!
The best donut ever!! I wish they were available after vacation.
