The Best Danish in Toronto

The best danish in Toronto is the beauty queen of the breakfast tray, often made by Toronto's oldest bakeries. Fruit filling lovingly wrapped in a nest of light flaky layered pastry drizzled with sweet icing, whether apple, blueberry, lemon or cheese these are always the first to go at early meetings, brunches, and cafes throughout the city.

Here is where to find the best danish in Toronto.
