Chelsea Buns?

Poorboy Oct 14, 2008 05:52 PM

Maybe feeling a little nostalgic for the chelsea buns I used to buy at Burke's Bakery on the Danforth however I am looking for quick fix.
Does anyone have a good lead for decent Chelsea BUn?
TIA

    I have had a nice chelsea bun at the Brick street bakery at the distillery. It was quite delicious, but I didint ask them where it was sourced ( I dont think they bake onsite).

    Also, maybe you can give Bridges British Bakery a call and inquire.

      I'm pretty sure Brick Street Bakery does all their own baking.

      A restaurant called Sierra Grill (at Bayview Village) makes delicious and fresh Chelsea buns. Too bad the rest of their food is bloody gross. They have a huge salad bar, which I actually think is fairly decent (although I’m sure many others would take issue with this), but stay away from their regular menu -- just horrible.

      The Chelsea buns however were great and always coming out fresh, placed at the salad bar.

      Haven’t been in around 4 years, but that is how I remember things there. Who knows if they are still good... can’t say.

      I also saw what looked to be yummy Chelsea buns at Summerhill Market, wrapped up. Haven’t actually tried them, but they sure did look good.

        I've never had Burke's, but also LOVE Chelsea Buns.

        I like the ones from Yitz's (Avenue and Eg. W.). My platonic ideal was from Senses (ca. 2001), but I don't think they do them anymore.
