Ace Bakery ALTERNATIVE(the little guy)

I'm currently writing a menu and in search of an alternative to ACE bakery. I'm looking to support the little guy in the GTA that bakes a variety of fresh breads and can keep up with restaurant demand. I have been searching and coming up short. There must be a production bakery in the city that competes with ACE bakery, no?

Help me support the independent bakery.

    1. Breadhouse on Bayly makes superb rye and whole grain breads.

        1. ACE Bakery is way overrated. Look for a good Portuguese Bakery. The problem is they have gone downhill. Try Caldense.

            I agree it's over rated. It's only appeal is it's huge selection. I'll try Caldense, thanks. They seem to have a few locations.

                Agree that St Johns is good. Bought some English Muffins from them at Don Valley Brickworks Market last weekend and a scone. All very good and the rest of their selection looked great!
