The Toronto Bread Company on Progress Rd.
Have you been? I was told by a friend it's good. Looking to find out if it's worth the trek.
My father visits this place a few times a week to pick up some fresh bread (he spoils my mom) for breakfast. The buns are nice and fresh and the prices and extremely reasonable.
That being said I am not a fan of their baguettes or bagels. Seems like they just used their normal bun dough and shaped it into an oblong shape (baguette has terrible crust and not chewy – in a good way at all) or mold it into a circle (bagel is way too airy)
Overall, if it is still not too far away it is worth a trip.
