Toronto Cafés and Bakeries

Toronto loves its coffee and treats. No matter the neighbourhood, a good cup of coffee is always lurking somewhere nearby. Cafés also offer some of the most affordable noshing in the city.  Blessed by our multi-cultural landscape, you can also find baking that focuses on a host of cultural traditions.

Cafés & Coffee Shops

One of our favourite coffee shops in Toronto.

Wallace Espresso

Wallace Espresso’s three locations serve great coffee and fresh baked goodies for very reasonable prices. You may have to line up for the good stuff, but it’s worth the wait.


Cafe23 is a delightful coffee shop located just east of Trinity Bellwoods Park. Excellent coffees & baked goods, and a fabulous outdoor patio – a great spot.
Toronto Portuguese Bakery

Nova Era Bakery

Nova Era has four locations, all serving authentic, tasty and inexpensive Portuguese treats. Fabulous baking, of course, but don’t miss out on the delicious hot sandwiches!

Bakeries & Sweet Treats

Aux Merveilleux de Fred

This classic French patisserie is a true gem. The coffee is superb (quelle surprise) and the baked goods delicious and the service is warm and welcoming. This is a must-visit spot on Queen St. W.
Mango, Vanilla and Matcha Swiss Rolls. Bake Island in Toronto, Asian Baked Goods
