Beaches Bake ShopThe Beaches Bake Shop in the Upper Beaches in a neighbourhood favourite serving fresh baked treats daily. They make all their own baked goods and sell hard to find Swedish treats like Kanelbullen (Swedish Cinnamon Buns with Cardamom), and Sarah Bernards (Almond Macaroons dipped in chocolate).

The problem with this place is nothing is baked here!!! You could get most of the items offered in Loblaws! Don't waste your time!

Sometimes customers are a problem.....
We do bake a large portion of the items sold right here at Beaches Bakeshop & Cafe'! Laura, if you decide to "waste some time" please come in and I will show you what we make! Among other things we offer Homemade soup from scratch, innovative and fresh salads (Quinoa, Red Rice, Orzo, Cous Cous), 3 different types of Quiche, the largest assortment of Traditonal Swedish Baked goods in Toronto (haven't seen that at Loblaws) and lots more!!

It's true, when this place first opened, all the goodies in the display case were from Dufflet.

However, to be fair, in the past year or so, I've noticed that the baked goods appear to be made on premises. And they're quite yummy. The cinnamon buns and Swedish almond macaroons are standouts.

Laura - New owners at an old location. Its like comparing the food that used to be served at Shopsy's at the new Oliver + Bococini restaurant at the same location. Perhaps the sidewalk is the same however the soul is new...

Thanks for the recommendation BLOGTO.

My partner and I Just crushed two of their cinnamon buns which came right from of the oven (the shop smelled amazing), next into our home and finally mouths. We were both pumped to be consuming deliciousness from what seemed to be a total local supported spot. I was playing frogger with baby carriages, other shop owners and random uniformed kids just to get to the ordering part. The women working there were friendly and not so much in that "I'm pretending to be your best friend" but "I appreciate you being in my establishment" kinda way. It's a little more real and very much appreciated. One of the ladies there had a rad choice of style, very bake shop/cafe appropriate. I know it may not matter much but I find it was a pleasant addition to the experience. I say why not make your spot pop with a solid outfit, it's the total package that leaves that lasting impression. I'm still thinking of which other treats I saw (Triple chocolate brownie) that I want to smash between my nose and chin.


ps.Check out Desmond & Beatrice (750A Queen Sweet East, 647352-2257) for other great Cinnamon Bun/treat options. I love options I can eat.

I often stop in for a grilled panini at lunchtime, and have never been disappointed. Anna and Rose have delicious and nutritious salads, and the quiches are sublime. As mentioned earlier, the cinnamon buns are going to reach cult status, they are that good! And truly baked on the premises. Glad they are in my neighborhood.

When we first moved to Toronto couple of months ago we visited Bake Shop and just fell in love immediately with Anna's cheerful Swedish personality and the amazingly delicious Semlas and Princess cake. (Made to order for your family gatherings and parties!) To us it was like a breeze from home!

Visited again this weekend and had an opportunity to try their mouth watering, and now famous, original Cinnamon Buns! They are extra soft and just right amount of everything: sugar, cinnamon and butter. The nip sugar on top just finishes it right.

This Cafe really shows what scandinavian delicacies are all about. You can taste they are made from scratch with tradition.

Not to forget that you can buy other scandinavian sweets and products from them as well from candies to shoes!
