Kosher dessert around Avenue and Wilson/Lawrence

pescatarian Sep 7, 2007 11:23 AM

I am going to dinner at my friend's house around Avenue and Wilson/Lawrence area. I'd like to pick up a dessert and/or gelato. I'm familiar with the area, but I can't think of where I can pick up something that would be really good and that's also kosher (their house is kosher). Any suggestions?

    Try Richman's Bakery on Bathurst - between Sheppard and Wilson - or Grodzinski's on Bathurst - between wilson and lawrence - before they close for shabbat. Both have some very nice baked goods.

      Thanks. I don't think I'll be able to get there before they close though. I'll try.

        Pusateri's seems to cater to all forms of diet, and carry many other people's desserts. Dufflet, Rahier, etc.

          That's a good idea.

            I was just in Pusateris and I noticed they had a number of kosher certified, gluten free non-dairy desserts in a display not far from where you enter the store. I am not sure how they taste and would love to find out from anyone who has tried them.

            Also, there is a kosher non-dairy frozen lemon cake called "The Cake" that is sold at the No-Frills at Bathurst and Wilson and other purveyors of kosher food that is quite good. The desserts at Richman's and Grodzinskis IMHO are mediocre at best. Grodzinskis makes great bread products.
