Cheese Blintzes

wodeam Oct 4, 2007 05:46 AM

Looking for a place in Toronto to purchae (take-out or frozen) good cheese blintzes. I used to be able to buy some at Loblaws, but can't seem to find them there anymore. Any suggestions? (Live in West End)

    The frozen ones from Empire aren't bad. Widely available in Jewish neighbourhoods.

      United Bakery in Lawrence Plaza sells them also. I'm not a fan of blintzes in general but they seem to be very popular at the restaurant. They also do takeout.

      I live in south Etobicoke and got really good cheese bintzes at that European Deli/ Sausage Factory on the Queensway. I think it's called Czecowski or something like that (hope i'm not mixing the name up with the uber-trendy Queen West resto). It's on the south side of Queensway, just east of Islington, past the new row of townhouses.

      They also had some other take-out food that looked good (schnitzels, pierogies and i think even cabbage rolls).

          Daiters is good. Longo's sometimes carries their blintzes, at least in their mid-towny stores.
          Regina's is also good and might be closer to you.

            agree with Regina's
            Also Nortown has cheese blintzes.
            Tried the Longo's and they were not good.
            Freshness might have been a factor.
            I'm sure that they would have been better purchased directly from Daiters

          Daiter's at Bathurst and Wilson.

          Starsky's on Dundas West may have them (Polish Version).
