        Also an excellent choice. Much smaller than Vienna, but what they do offer is of very good quality.

        This might be a little out of the way but it's a scenic drive in the fall. There is a or at least used to be a german place in Stratford. They even used to make their own sausages

          Vienna Fine Foods would be my recommendation too, though not convenient if you're not in the east end and/or don't have a car. I haven't been that way in a while, but there is a store on Roncesvalles called the Old Country Shop. They don't really have much in the way of food products but should be able to satisfy your German chocolate cravings -- especially at Easter when their front window is a sight to behold.

            There's also Brandt Meats in Etobicoke. Their web site focuses a lot on meat, but I can tell you there were lots of other tasty treats there - especially towards Christmas time.

              Brandt is actually on the Mississauga side of the 427.

              If you're in the west end, it is an excellent choice for German products.

              I believe Reiter's on Church just south of Wellesley sells German products.

                Reiter's does, but not nearly as much selection as Vienna. Vienna is 100% German and the store has the footprint of your average Rabba I'd guess.

                  I second Vienna...
                  They carry great meats and have a little Imbiss at the back for tasty cheap food.
                  Full range of sausages, aufschnitt, speck, leberkase, kasseler, and roasts and steaks as well.
                  Fr dairy they have Tilsit cheese, Butter cheese and others
                  Also have German Knorr products, Manner, Mozartkugeln,

                    And I third Vienna. What a find. There is simply no competition in reasonable proximity to the Toronto core.

                      Now if only they'd get a darn website. It'd make recommending them sooo much easier if you could just do a www. HERE.

                  Try Vienna Fine Foods on the west side of Birchmount one set of lights north of Eglinton. They have a wide selection of offerings including German chocolates. Not sure what you mean by dairy exactly, but their cheeses reflect the German palate as well.
