Kostas Greek Bakery at Warden & Ellesmere...

and snuggled right up against Kostas Meat Market. When did THIS open and has anyone shopped there?

  1. I know it was open before the Greek Orthodox Easter (May 5th) as my wife is an avid knitter, and one of her favorite knitting stores is right next door to it; the parking lot was a total zoo!

      But was that for the bakery or butcher shop??

        The butcher shop has been there for decades. The bakery is new. Anyone who knows Kostas would know which one I'm asking about. Sorry. I didn't mean to speak in Secret Scarborough Code.

          I was asking Spelunk if the parking lot was busy with people visiting the bakery or the butcher shop. I totally get, being Easter, the butcher shop being busy.

            I love Kostas London Broil. Almost as good as the former Kellens in the Don Mills plaza of the recent past. Parking lot is a pain usually but there is a reason for that.

      2. Sorry it was for people visiting the butcher; but the bakery was open then was what I meant.

          Yeah, that butcher shop is always a zoo. Good, but bad. I may try the bakery this weekend. If anyone gets the skinny before me, dish!

          Davwud, since you're an experimenter I'll tell ya, don't make a special trip for the butcher. If you have some locking to do nearby, drop into Blackhorn for lunch and grab something for the 'cue from Kostas for dinner that night. Don't go nutty buying everything. It isn't a load-up kinda place.

            I went there years ago on the suggestion of a Greek guy I work with. I wasn't impressed. Not that there was anything wrong with it. Just wasn't worth fighting a crowd and making a special trip. Which you've just confirmed is still the same.

            Thanks for the tip.

              I do just as well at the butcher counter at Highland Farms. Lotsa parking, easy transit access, and I finally figured out how to game the ticket dispenser system.

                  The bakery might be okay, though, so it's worth checking out.
