Bakeries

Bakery
“Cute dessert shop serving many delicious French pastries. I love their caneles! They're baked in copper molds, just like the authentic Bordelaise caneles in France. The shop is small with limited seating, though. There is a patio at the back. Staffs are very friendly!”

Grocery Store
“Our local grocery store. One of the cheaper grocery chains in Toronto - though there is normally excellent produce and selection of products here. This store also has a pharmacy. Remember a quarter (25 cents) in order to use a cart!”

Bakery
“Sud Forno is the bakery offshoot of Italian mini-empire Terroni. It has a stunning two-level location near Yonge and Temperance. Great spot for pastries, and for fresh bread for home.”

Cupcake Shop
“If you like cupcakes, then you will LOVE this place! Their cupcakes are made fresh on premise and they are light and fluffy with a very generous frosting topping. So if sweet goodness isn't your thing, then don't come here! :-) Check out their featured cupcake flavours in addition to the staples like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and lemon.”
