What a Bakery
875 Milner Ave
Once upon a time, my wife worked at a bakery to help out a friend. Waking up at 2am to GO to work was absolutely mind-boggling, but I sure enjoyed waking up to a fresh loaf of bread, and the occasional treat. As we started our journey out of Toronto, we turned off the highway for a coffee in the suburb of Scarborough – and happened to come across this bakery.
I’ve written in the past about my love of cornbread, and this cornbread muffin ranks as one my favorites. My second choice for the road, was the cinnamon twist (figured it would be easy to eat while driving). Both were superb.
My wife chose the apple strudel, and chocolate croissant. Again, both of these were top-notch in flavour and quality. The apple filling was excellent (not your generic cubed apple filling), but more of a thick, chunky, apple sauce – within a light, flaky, pastry shell. The chocolate croissant was perfect, buttery & light, reminding us of Paris.
My belly thanks you, both for the outstanding treats – and for being out of daily reach. Another great and lucky find on our trip!
