Delica - Yonge and St Clair
- Thatcher Nov 21, 2009 07:35 AM
See that there is a new spot called Delica, just S of St Clair. It looks like a carry-out place. Anyone tried this yet or know the scoop?
Just finally saw this open.
I think it is all take out, a lot of gourmet ready made foods. They're open until 3 pm this week, definitely going to try it tomorrow.
It's owned by Devin Connell, the daughter of ACE Bakery founders Linda Haynes and Martin Connell. She and her mother recently released a joint cookbook.
It just got a little write-up in the Star yesterday in the Living section, suggesting the "strawberry jammies" (baked doughnuts). Please post if you go - it's not in my area but I'd like to try it out if it's good.
I walked in and took a look. Everything looked good - but no seating (Ok a counter with a handful of seats). But prices were 'not cheap'.
So I continued on to Boccone where the 'average' costs are about 30-40% less (and I can sit for a while). Certainly the Ace breads look nice - but again, Boccone has daily delivery too.
Maybe if someone can recommend the 'best deal' I'll give it a try.
Was there for lunch today.
Very attractive little "store" and display counter with 6 hard stools in the corner.
Triple decker: one little slice cheese, 2 tiny strips of bacon and barely a schmear of tomato relish. Way too much bread for the less than generous amount of filling. $7.99+ tax
Guest had med. squash soup which was good but not exciting. In fairness I have never met an exciting squash soup. $5.75
Rather liked the strawberry jammy but it would not make the place a destination by any means.
It appears they are hoping to maintain a 10% food cost
Boccone had nothing to fear - nor do any other of the local restos.
