Just a couple blocks north of Steeles on the east side of Yonge st. is Nino Daversa Italian Bakery. Excellent pasteries and breads and has a hot table with awesome Italian food. At Bathurst and Steeles there's a couple of bakeries. Kiva's and Steeles Bakery in the Price Chopper plaza. Also very good.
I've lived in that area for several years and I have to say that there's really a dearth of good bakeries around here. There's a Pusateri's that just opened at bayview village mall which supplies good breads. Otherwise, nothing else comes to mind
