Looking for best sourdough in Toronto

Who makes the best sourdough in Toronto? I'm on the East End.

  1. I like the bread at St. John's Bakery. They have different breads - so far I've tried a sourdough type bread called Angeligus that I can taste the sourdough base in. I have also had their multigrain seed bread, which is very good. They had nice looking olive breads and a raisin walnut today, but I had limited funds on me because I stopped there during my run. Next I want to try the Fife bread.
    They have a location on Broadview, north of Queen on the east side. I can also buy their breads at Fresh From the Farm on Donlands.

    1. best sourdough in the city, hands down, is cob's. there's a few locations but my fave is kensington market. go early, though! they usually run out by 2ish

      1. Try Altitude on Queen East or the walnut sourdough at Brick St. Bakery off Queen East.

        1. Jamie Kennedy's Gilead Cafe (in Corktown) has an absolutely amazing bread made with Red Fife flour. Also, (when they have it) Brick Street Bakery in the distillery has an excellent one as well.

          Have to also agree with the St. John's Bakery suggestion, their bread is quite good as well.

            i'm not a sourdough pro, but i second jamie kennedy's red fife sourdough. my friend and i finished a loaf down at the beach today and it was great just like that

          2. Excellent sourdoughs at Brick Street (on Logan and at the Distillery) and at St John's (freshest on Broadview north of Queen). Nothing shabby about Ace or Fred's breads either, mass distribution or not. Silverstein's rye, fresh from the bakery and unbagged, shouldn't disappoint. I'd pass on Cob's.
