  1. Not sure what area of the city you have in mind, so I'll suggest Nova Era, a Portuguese bakery/cafe which has several locations downtown.

      1. Frangipane is a lovely bakery with wonderful desserts - at Dupont & Spadina. It's a bit small for a sit-down type of snack, but well worth a visit!

        Le Pain Quotidien is another great bakery. More rustic, and larger and yummy yummy breads and sandwiches. It's just a block or so north of Bloor on Yonge St.

        Bounjour Brioche is another great spot. Its has a great brunch, as well as amazing baked goods... I remember it to have more savoury items (brioche, croissant, baguette, quiches) than sweet items, but the aroma that fills this little spot is just heavenly. It's on Queen st East near Broadview.


        1. Pain Perdu, on St. Clair west of Christie, has excellent house-made pastries, quiches, and light meals. It's very small and quaint, with a few tables and chairs.
