Bakery
“This is my "go to" for fresh baked bread (try the lavender honey quinoa loaf) and ready made quiches. You can pretty much pick up everything you need for a picnic in High Park here. There are mini meat and pizza pies, tuna salad, cheese sticks and hot cross buns, you name it! And then there's the dessert side - fruit tarts and pies, squares and more. If you need a little Canadiana, try the nanaimo bars that they make. Yum!”

Bakery
“The ultimate in a Polish deli store, this place gives a peek into what Roncesvalles stores used to all be like 15 years ago. This place brings out the local Polish contingent with their delicious kolbassa and dill pickles from a bucket, frozen perogies and many other delightful treats. As authentic as it gets!”
