  1. I don't know if the chelsea buns at Forest Hill Bakery (1128 Eglinton Ave W) are up to your standard, but they do bake them on the premises daily. They are especially good when fresh from the oven in the morning and I think go downhill after that. Worth a try though.

        Help me out please with a description of Chelsea buns. What are they?

          They're like cinnamon buns, but sort of soaked in sticky caramel, at least, those are the Chelsea buns I know. I think they are also sometimes smaller and darker than cinnamon buns. I'm trying to find them for my husband, who is not a help in describing them, so he'll have to be happy with whatever I find!! haha...

      2. The Danish Pastry Shop on Pape Avenue in Toronto makes pretty good chelsea buns. They also freeze well. Here is their website:

        1. I'd swear there was a long thread on this before but these wee ones were all I could find:

          I get mine at Yitz's (Eglinton at Avenue). Sobey's carries decent ones too, but at their price point I'm guessing the ingredients are on the mass-manufacturing side.

          1. I recall that thread from years ago. If memory serves, I think Open Window bakery at Cloverdale Mall was mentioned. Don't even know if it still there.

            1. Brick Bakery makes a Chelsea bun. I like it, but I have had very little to compare it to.
