ISO soda bread

Anyone know where I can buy soda bread in the GTA?

  1. The George Street Diner at George St. and Richmond St. downtown sells what they call "Irish Soda Bread", as well as a pre-packaged mix that you can use to easily make the bread at home by adding some basic wet ingredients and popping it in the oven according to the directions (I was reading a package last time waiting for a table, but I forget the exact details). See the right sidebar on their blog, here:

      the soda bread i've had there was pretty close to the stuff i used to buy in Glasgow. never noticed the take home mix though, next time i'm there i'll grab some to try it out. hard to top warm soda bread with butter.

    2. Farmer's market at Thornhill - actually at the Steve Caroll meat/butcher counter on Yonge ,South of John Street. Never had the original but it was pretty good to me.

      1. Welcome to Scarborough. Try But 'N' Ben at McCowan & Ellesmere or Mrs. Bridges at Victoria Park & Eglinton.

          Thanks for everyones recomendations. I ended up at the Mrs. Bridges on Oakdale because that was the closer option. I spoke to the lady the day before and she said it wouldn't be a problem the next morning but when I got there they only had soda scones. I'll have to try one of the other recomendation at a later date.

            A guy (could be Irish) at the Wychwood Barns Farmers Market (Saturdays) sells soda bread.
