Best cheese danish?

mrbozo Sep 8, 2008 05:55 AM

The recent talk of deli food has got my mind wandering next door to the bakery for dessert. Specifically, a cheese danish. My favourite, though I haven't had one in a while, was Harbord Bakery's. Lots of lemony, cinnamony cottage cheese wrapped a delectable pastry dough and dusted with icing sugar. Warm from the oven. Who makes your favourite cheese danish?

    Used to be Bregman's on Yonge Street (gone but not forgotten, at least not for the Cheese Danish , they were FABULOUS)
    I now quite like the Cheese Buns/Pastry at What-A-Bagel(s). I wouldn't call them a 'Danish' but they are very good...not delicate but a handful of good stuff! Warm from the oven if you're lucky, a taste treat!

      i know many will cringe, but I've yet to find a cheese danish that compares to Entenmenns's cheese strudle! You can only get it in the states, but it had a filling an inch thick of sweet cheese filling and delicious crumble on top..heated up a few minutes in oven or microwave and it's amazing!

        Milbree-Viking on Laird has become my favourite. Finnish, not Danish, but oh so good.


        They don't always have the straight-up cheese danish when I get there - timing is definitely the issue. They use quark, not cottage cheese.

            I had a blueberry cheese danish recently at Village Grocer and it was the best I have ever had.

            I have heard that Montreal Bread Company (MBCo) has one of the best cheese danishes going. Haven't tried it yet myself. I too am a Harbord cheese danish fan.

              The Happy Grain Organic Bakery at Bayview/Millwood as a worthy cheese danish, though I am nominating it as "best". More at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/556826

                That should have read "NOT nominating it as best" :-(
