From mouth-water macarons to nutella-filled pop tarts, and delicious organic and vegan sweets, here are 5 of the best bakeshops in Toronto.
Located at College and Ossington, Bake Shoppe is a bakery cafe selling custom cakes, squares, pop tarts, and cookies designed with your favourite rappers on them. The interior is brought to life with a neon pink “Baked” sign and colourful piece of art from ansermysteriousdate. The pop tarts are filled with nutella or seasonal jams from Kitten and the Bear, and if you can’t decide between sweet and salty, you can try their signature Ruffles marshmallow squares, which are always a crowd pleaser.
Tori’s Bakeshop is an eco-friendly, all-natural organic bakery offering egg-free, dairy-free, casein-free, gluten-free and refined sugar-free treats. They bake their products fresh every morning so you know you’ll always get the most succulent selection. The cozy bakery now has two locations: One on Queen Street East and the other in the Canary District. Pair your pastries with a coffee from Trebilcock or a tea from Sloane Tea or House of Tea, and you’re in for a treat!

You can get your Bobbette & Belle fix at two Toronto locations, one at Yonge and Lawrence and one on Queen Street East.
