Toronto good cake in Don Mills area
Heading through Leslie/Don Mills/York Mills area on my way to a birthday.
Where can a good cake, not too sweet, made from scratch & with good quality ingredients be found?
Something near Don Mills/York Mills area like this????
There are several places in what appears to be an industrial mall at, I think, 1875 Leslie. There are bakeries for sure. There is also a food shop there called Fitz Henri that has delicious baking, but I don't know whether they stock ready made cakes - you'd need to call first.
Chapmans in the Bayview/York Mills plaza also has some excellent baked stuff.
I just called them... they said they have coffee cake & such, but for any fancy cake you have to pre-order a day in advance.
I'm trying to call Fitz Henri, but getting constant busy signals.
Yeah, I'd prefer to avoid "very" expensive, but would like to find a really good, wholesome, tasty, well-made cake...
Any other thoughts?
Hmmm... I tried to go to Fitz Henri but it's true... it's gone.
I went to Maxim and it looks like a good cake.
I saw the sign for Phipps, but didn't realise it was a bakery. Damn.
I would have tried Arz Bakery, too, if I had seen the message in time.
But it looks like I'll be happy with what I got from Maxim.
Longo's at Leslie and York mills has excellent selection of cakes and pies.
What-a-bagel same plaza carries great chocolate buffalo's.
Nothing else to rave about.
Maxim frurther north is just O.K.
Unfortunately we are basically a bakery wasteland.
