I’m always on the search for great vegan places to eat, and Tori’s Bakeshop is a true gem. Tucked away in the beaches, one of my favourite Toronto neighbourhoods, Tori’s has vegan and gluten free treats, delicious sandwiches (like smoky coconut bacon BLT), and a bright, cozy atmosphere. Though it’s a bit of a trek to get there from my west end apartment, I try to make my way there are often as I possibly can to load up on treats!
On top of being all vegan with lots of gluten free choices, Tori’s is organic, fresh, and handmade, and there are always tasty new seasonal things to try. I brought my parents while they were in Toronto on vacation and my meat-eating dad loved it so much he begged to go back twice in one week! On my last visit I had a delicious blueberry tea latte with home made blueberry syrup and black tea from a local tea company, paired with a massive, gooey cinnamon bun! I can’t wait to see what easter treats this wonderful spot has in store soon!
