  • Bo&Bon
    Seated at round, white-topped café tables, customers alternate sips of premium espresso with bites of crunchy, freshly baked macaroons. A popular specialty, the macaroons exemplify the level of craftsmanship that goes into each pastry sold at Bo&Bon, a bakery conceived as a bridge between a neighbourhood coffee shop and a gourmet pastry kitchen. Bo&Bon’s streamlined interior evokes an upscale, European-style elegance that reappears in the bakers’ presentation of their various cakes, meringues, and other treats. Helmed by a professional pastry chef, the bakery’s skilled confectioners painstakingly craft treats that range from custom wedding cakes to small chocolates. Their commitment to all-natural, kosher pareve, and lactose-free ingredients extends to all corners of their menu, and they uniformly eschew artificial colourings and decorative machine bolts.

  • Mama Mia
    Mama Mia Place's owner recalls childhood days spent at his grandfather's farm, standing beside the warmth of the clay oven as he watches his grandmother bake fresh bread and empanadas. A point of family pride, empanada recipes are passed down from generation to generation and are crafted through time and expertise; Mama Mia's empanada recipe is no exception. Inside his own restaurant, chefs knead and bake fresh dough inside an open-view kitchen, crafting traditional cinnamon-dusted churros or pastries filled with dulce de leche, homemade cream caramel, which are made following family recipes handed down for three generations. Freshly baked wares travel to the gleaming glass bakery cases under the front counter for display and safekeeping in a warm, cozy environment.

  • Mary Mac Leod's Shortbread
    Behind the lace-framed windows of her shop’s old-timey storefront, Scottish-born Mary Macleod hand-crafts her crumbly signature confections in small, careful batches. Perfected over the course of thirty years, her secret recipes blend Canadian flour, creamery butter, and, in some cases, Belgian chocolate, for an all-natural treat free from preservatives, additives, and cosmic dust. To compose their set of a dozen sweets, snack-seekers can mix and match eight original flavours—from innovations such as rolled coconut mixed with a spritz of Madagascar vanilla, to classic milk chocolate crunch dusted with icing sugar. Nestled in a beribboned, cardboard baker’s box, the cookies make a neatly packaged gift or catapult projectile.

  • Menchie's Frozen Yogurt-YongeSt
    Though he couldn't have known it at the time, Adam Caldwell arranged what arguably could be considered one of the most successful first dates in modern history. He not only ended up marrying his date, Danna, but also had such a memorable time with her in the frozen-yogurt shop that the two of them were eventually inspired to start their own. They opened Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in California in 2007, and within just a few years, found themselves with a family of hundreds of thriving stores sprinkled all around the world. As the Menchie's brand grew, Adam and Danna kept a simple mission in mind: to make their customers smile. An adorable cast of animated characters is featured throughout the stores, including on the colorful spoons, and customers can have fun creating endless frozen-yogurt combinations. There are almost 150 rotating yogurt flavors, and the selection includes eight versions of vanilla. Of course, there are plenty of toppings as well, displayed in help-yourself bins filled with fresh fruit, nuts, cereal, and candy. The yogurt is made from fresh milk from a California dairy, and it is free of the artificial growth hormone rSBT. All the yogurt is kosher, and certain flavors accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets.
