Hot Cross Buns

I haven't had a hot cross bun in years and can't seem to find them anywhere. Does anyone know where I could get some?

      There is a bakery on the lower level of St Lawrence market that regularly has hot cross buns and they are very good. You might also want to try the Farmers market in the North St Lawrence building on Saturday morning.

      Have also seen them in Dominion but not tried them.

        I second the Stonemill Bakehouse at St. Lawrence. Very good hot cross buns, and I've tried a lot. (Unfortunately sold almost year-round, which kinda takes the thrill out of them, like year-round asparagus and artichokes and rhubarb and corn ... but that's another rant.)

    2. I saw them at Whole Foods today. You might want to drop by soon. They look popular and it was a total zoo there today.

        Saw some at Fresh and Wild today. (king/spadina)

      2. Cobbs Bakery (Bloor & Spadina, as well as other locations) has not only traditional hot cross buns, but also chocolate chip ones for those of us who love the spice flavour, but can't stand raisins. The chocolate ones were great.

          agree with the chocolate hot cross buns.. they made a delicious easter weekend breakfast in our house

        2. I was at Altitude Bakery on Friday and they definitely had them there then.

          1. When I was at Morning Glory a couple of weekends ago, they had fresh hotcross buns. I'm almost sure they bake them in-house, but I'm not 100% sure of that. Perhaps another hound can help answer that question?
