Best Bakeries in Toronto

Fabulous and charming French patisserie next to Trinity-Bellwoods park. Legendary macarons, exceptional cakes. Crowded on weekends. I would not recommend the croissants, however.

A little bit of France in Toronto. The croissants are divine and the macaroons unparalleled. A coffee and macaroon on the patio facing the park is pure decadence.

Chef-owned, bright & modern French patisserie for pastries, croissants, macarons & chocolate - has great sandwiches too (IG: @nadegetoronto)

Part bakery, part homemade ice creamery, try their famous ice cream sandwiches, vegan / gluten free cookies (regular ones too!), cakes, tarts, etc. Espresso and teas, too. Open late, closed Mondays.

Named the best bakery in TO, only a short walk from our place (dangerous!) Amazing homemade ice cream and cookies (customized ice cream sandwiches!)

Hands down one of the best bakeries in the city. Known for their ice-cream sandwiches and fresh baked goods, Bakerbots is requirement when visiting. I recommend the chocolate cupcakes, lemon tart,... read more

This bakery has it all, sweets, drinks, coffee, wine, bread, and a daily rotation of pizza slices and other meal options. Several cookies are made with with nuts instead of flour: gluten-free.

Damn this place is good. A legit Italian bakery. They take pride in their work and you can taste it. Definitely worth the trek. Artisanal homemade pastries that transport you to Italy. Wow.

Delicious home baked goods and ice cream. They have ice cream sandwiches. The cakes and cookies here are so flavourful and delicious and the staff really friendly.

Try the home made ice cream sandwiches - YUM! Everything they make is delicious. My celiac sister swears that their gluten free cookies are amazing.

Great place to rest, have a coffee, or do some laptop work. They make amazing pastries and ice cream sandwiches. I love it because they are open late as well. (10pm)

Well, they are one of Canada's top wedding cake makers (not kidding) and their pastries, cakes, and macaroons are exceedingly well crafted. House-made marshmallows. Elegantly casual. Wifi.

An airy high ceilinged European-style cafe for the best in cakes, cupcakes, homemade marshmellows, chocolat chad and meringues.

Ever wanted to try a gourmet $10 doughnut now is your chance. It sounds ridiculous and it is, ridiculously delicious (best when shared)

Award-winning doughnuts. So good they will haunt your dreams forever.

I want to hesitate the endorsement of a $4 doughnut, but I can't. A swell treat.

The best apple fritters you'll ever eat and a whole lot of selection of baked goods, deli/lunch items and espresso drinks! They have a really tasty breakfast "pizza" too.

Phenomenal family-owned famous Toronto Italian bakery with a cafe, hot plate section, meats and cheeses, fresh breads, sweets, coffee, gelato and much more! Closed on Mondays.

San Remo Bakery is a classic Italian grocer/restaurant with high quality coffee, food, pastries/baking, bread, meats, olives, gelato... A favorite for everyone. People travel in from everywhere to go.

Vegan bakery that makes a killer assortment of fresh baked doughnuts! Be sure to check out their grab & go frozen dinners for a cozy night in! I highly recommend the cabbage rolls!

VEGAN baked goods that melt in your mouth. Donuts, donuts and more donuts!!! I can NOT get enough of these donuts! An absolute must! Short walk, located on Bloor between Duffein and Lansdowne.

Vegan bakery for vegan and non-vegan people alike. Nobody can hate on these donuts. Flavours change up daily and never disappoint. Go early to make sure you get some.

Hazelnut cake and the most beautiful loaves of bread.

Fantastic sourdough bread, flatbreads, cakes and pastries. Pick up some burger buns to go with your burgers from Sanagans Meat Locker next door and have a cookout on the deck!

Small bakery with fantastic sourdough bread, plus sandwiches to go.

People are nuts for this cheesecake, there will be a line-up down the street no matter when you go. It's like a normal baked cheesecake but fluffier.

Japanese cheesecake and matcha green tea ice creams!

If you've never tasted Japanese cheesecake before, this is your opportunity! It's deliciously eggy and not heavy on the cheese. It's worth the wait in line.

I stopped in one morning to grab something to eat and was pleasantly surprised at their delicious breakfast (scrambled egg with veggies baked in a muffin cup) easy to eat while sightseeing.

Whoever wakes up first walks down Beaconsfield to Mabel's for the best croissants in Toronto. Great bread and other pre-made selections too...

Flaky croissants, fresh bread & finest cappuccinos. I'd recommend going right after they open in the morning!

Charming bakery with traditional pastries from Portugal and other delicious treats. Fresh baked bread, sandwiches and various lunch options. Free wi-fi

Portuguese bakery that has all your normal bakery goods as well as some prepared foods (sandwiches). This is the closest one to our house.

Closest pastry shop - not actually Parisian. It sells good Portuguese bread and sweets, plus they'll make you a cheap sandwich and sell you a beer if you can't manage the 7 minute walk to Bloor.

Although it's called Paris Bakery it's actually a Portuguese bakery. You must try the 'natas' (pronounced 'notosh') which are custard tarts. They are not pretty but they are delicious.

It's a charming old Portuguese bakery that brings out fresh warm bread every couple of hours. The prices are great, and it's been in the neighbourhood for a long long time.

Iconic Toronto dessert cafe. Light lunch too. Excellent desserts.

Get your slice on at this bakery. They supply a lot of local restaurants with their cakes and pies, but here is their storefront location, which is also nice to sit in and eat.

Great italian pastries, deli, hot table. Fantastic bread and pizza dough too. Stop by for an espresso and some cannoli.

Great "hot table" - cheap, great Italian fare, eat-in or take-home. Also fantastic cannoli and amaretti. The big secret is their home-made ice cream.

Corso Italia favourite. Bakery and deli, plus a great hot table with Italian pastas, meats and veg. Try the 'melanzane' - delicious eggplant parmesan. Save room for cannoli and other sweet treats.
