  1. There is Mrs. Bridges British Bakery in Eglinton Square http://www.bestbritishfoods.com/

    1. The Bulk Barns actually have a pretty good selection of British Crisps and convenience foods. They have a pretty good selection of chocolate too, That's where my British friends go.

      1. If you're in the east end of town (further east than Mrs. Bridges), there's But-N-Ben (in Scarborough and Pickering),


        or Paul's Imported British Food in the Pickering Markets:


        or the British Isles Shoppe in Ajax:


        Hope this helps!

        1. There's a shop that carries a bunch of British stuff on the East side of Donlands just south of O'Connor but the name escapes me at the moment.

            Lol that is 'the chocolate box' i went there last night it's crap.. it's like a convenience store and then half of the store they sell cd, most importantly cant find the things that i want..

          2. This place is the best that I know for groceries as well as flags etc.


            1. I just picked up some British chocolates for stocking stuffers at The Scottish Store on the East side of Leslie just south of the 401. Loads of British foods plus everything else Scottish.

                      There's also a place called Empire on Queen E around Broadview area. They used to be on Danforth near Broadview but moved to Queen. They have all the usual - cadburys, marmite, teas, jams, etc.
