Danielle Caesar and the confectionists at The Pop Shop rethink classic desserts, placing beautifully decorated, individual-size portions of cake, brownies, and marshmallows on sticks. Guests can customize the pops with pink frosting, colourful sprinkles, and cake flavours such as chocolate, vanilla, and butter pecan.
Yogurty's, a proudly Canadian company, claims that at their stores, no two customers have ever made the same exact treat twice. It would be nearly impossible—low- or no-fat, probiotic-rich frozen yogurt comes in more than 85 flavours, ranging from carmel latte to banana split to red velvet, and 65 toppings allow patrons to swirl, drizzle, and sprinkle tasty treats until they resemble works of icy art. Their gluten-free yogurt, a natural source of protein, calcium, and probiotics, is made from fresh milk right off of Canadian farms and supports healthy digestive systems and immunity. The cheerful stores showcase bright colors—nearly as bright as bubblegum and orange cream, topped with sour gummi worms, and rainbow sprinkles.
Saint Cinnamon slings sweet, sticky, swirled sustenance into Toronto's taste portals with its world-famous cinnamon rolls, made in full view of the customers. Savour the flavour of piping-hot pastries with a dozen of Saint Cinnamon's Little Cinns—smaller than the bakery's regular-sized rolls but just as delicious and much easier to shove into the pockets of gym shorts for mid-marathon snacking. Customers with wheat allergies or gluten-rejection syndrome can redeem their Groupon for $14.99 worth of spelt or gluten-free baked goods at Saint Cinnamon's Pickering location only.
Authentic Caribbean and Chinese entrees nestle side by side on Island Mix Restaurant & Lounge's eclectic menu of fusion fare. Diners can opt for the hot-table lunch to treat taste buds to a two-course noontime nosh, or go for the à la carte option at dinner to pick and choose from the mouth-moistening menu selections. Like a chocolate-coated basement in a gingerbread house, beds of rice serve as a flavourful foundation to a choice of entree from the hot lunch menu including jerk chicken, beef curry, and oxtail. Entrees mingle with an included soup of the day and beverage, and afterwards diners can catch up on work or travel the digital world with the eatery's free Wi-Fi.
