Absolutely horrible service. I wouldn't recommend wasting your money.

I've always had great service, especially at the second (Leslieville) location. At the Distillery, baked goods are great and the sandwiches are wonderful. Highly recommended!

I have to say that the new location in the Beaches is one of the best! The store itself is magnificent, but the adorable young woman with bright eyes is the friendliest worker i have ever met. She is the reason why we go in there. She treats my kids wonderfully and we truly appreciate it! If you have a chance go check it out.

Easily the best sandwiches in Toronto.

Leslieville location is great, the staff is friendly and prompt.

Favourites include the olive fuguese, the eccles, and their croissants. The french baguettes are very good as well. I have yet to try their loaves, as I find them a bit on the pricey side ($5 each). The sandwiches are huge and well priced ($7), tuna salad and egg salad are delicious.

Some of the things I would not recommend are the macaroons and the tomato fuguese. Yikes.

The nut and raisin loaf is amazing, even old and toasted with butter. Yum! Also the shepperd's pie is a delight!

I'm a regular and I would recommend this place.

I bought a french baguette on a Sunday morning at their Leslieville location. It tasted like it was baked the previous day and left to dry for unsuspecting customers like myself. I've had fresher bread from Loblaws at a fraction of the cost.

the sandwich was lovely even though the bread was dried around the edges but the service was jokey in a smarmy way.
could have been the end of the day but if that's the case:

The macarons at the FCP location are simply phenomenal. I was recently given a box of macarons from Laduree in Paris; once I finished it off, I was completely disappointed. After trying the macarons at Brick Street Bakery, I was delighted to discover that their macarons are very similar to Laduree's. Being that I work very close by, I'll probably buy macarons from this place every day. In addition, the staff is extremely friendly, helpful and prompt, even during their busiest moments (particulary during the lunch hour).

Overall, I'd give them 5/5 stars.

Nice bakery,and great product. But someone there is very irresponsible for public safety. Someone from Brick Street Bakery has had an SUV parked for a few days on Dundas St just east of Pape, with a trailer attached. And on that trailer is a fridge with the doors still attached. This is a safety hazzard !! I've called the bakery but I felt dismissed by whoever I spoke to. Does someone have to die for these guys wake up and do the right thing?

Funny... walked in there last week to try it for the first time.
The girl behind the counter was writing in a book, then adjusted her hair and scratched her underarm. I was expecting her to wash her hands before waiting on customers! She didn't..... so I turned around and left. The place didn't seem very clean , and obviously it must not be?
