Little treats for co-workers
I don't have time to bake cupcakes, I'm looking for small sized treats that are either cookies, or small pastries. I usually go to Dufflet's but was looking to try someplace different. My only criteria for a bakery is that they use real vanilla in their baking.
I'm not sure of your geographic restrictions, but Harbord Bakery has many tasty items that would fit your criteria. Be forewarned, they sometimes come with a helping of surliness.

I bought a bunch of little pastries and goodies from Daniel et Daniel on Carlton at Parliament for a friend of mine for her birthday and her and her boyfriend couldn't say enough good things about them. They have a nice selection of elegant treats.
