This is a great list...some I already love, and some new places to try! Café Fiorentina is quite delicious. May I also suggest Andrea's Gerrard Street Bakery? (Gerrard just east of Broadview) Creamy personal size quiches, flaky crust, yum yum yum.

I think something is wrong with the mapping software being used. it is missing tons of major streets, some streets are non continuous lines, etc. The map has a giant grey area where Spadina is supposed to be.

Helena's Kitchen also have really amazing quiches. I'd prefer theirs over La Cigogne. They're in the Grange foodcourt, serve out quiches daily, but sells out fast during the lunch hour.

Some were nice and crunchy, others were a bit soft. I pretend that they're caraway seeds.

I wanted to love Patisserie La Cigogne's quiches, but they were weird and watery when I tried them last weekend.
