You knew I'd have to, so I'm indeed putting Montmartre Bakery out there. This may be the last of the old-fashioned bakeries. Heavy focus on German wares made with Old World expertise. And, yes, they even gluten free every Thursday by pre-order only.
I have to work really hard to spend more than $10 and that includes dessert.
Great list! in addition...
Artisano has some delicious grain breads but one of the standouts is the Cornbread. They have a grain bread with cranberries that stands out too.
Caldense on Dundas W - particularly the bun Prochetta uses.
T&T makes awesome milk breads and egg bread (challah)
+1 for cheesy bread!
I have a bit of an obsession with Epi Bread's cheese/potato/chive loaf which they stopped making a while ago. I spend a lot of time trying to figure out what to do with all the bread I'd need to order to get a special order made up...mmm...cheese potato bread...ooo and I also love Epi's pan au chocolat! And almond croissants!
