Hot Cross Buns Toronto

10 places to get hot cross buns in Toronto

Hot cross buns are one of the most iconic treats that come along with Easter weekend, and luckily for fans of the warm, raisin-and-currant-filled delights, there are plenty of places in Toronto to find them.

Here are some places to find hot cross buns in Toronto.

Brick Street Bakery

This classic bakeshop with locations in Leslieville and the Distillery district is a go-to in the city to pick up a dozen of the fluffy, fruity treats.

Blackbird Baking

Fancy a hot cross bun, hold the cross? This bakeshop has you covered with their 'not cross buns' which are filled with orange, raisins, and currants and topped with an orange glaze.

Circles and Squares

The shiny, glazed hot cross buns at this bakery with locations in midtown and East York are baked in perfectly packaged six packs that go for $12 each.

Epi Breads

This Leaside go-to has been supplying the community with to-die-for HCBs for years, and they're not stopping now. You can pick up a single bun for $2.95 or a half-dozen for $8.99.

Castle & Coal

While the buns at this West Queen West bakeshop are on the pricier side ($28 for a half-dozen), they're oh-so-worth it. Did I mention that a six pack of buns also comes with whipped honeycomb butter to spread on top? Like I said, worth it.

Mabel's Bakery in the Junction

Stop by any of this beloved bakery's three Toronto locations — The Junction, West Queen West or Roncesvalles — to savour their celebrated currant-filled buns.

SanRemo Bakery

You should already know Toronto's best Italian bakery serves up this delectable Easter classic done right, and the best part is the price: the Etobicoke bakery sells their hot cross buns for $1.25 each.

SJCB x Robinson Bread

Take one look at the glistening, glazed goodies at this Parkdale bakeshop and you'll wish that the Easter bunny filled your house with hot cross buns instead of chocolates.

Wanda's Pie in the Sky

Head to Kensington Market for a half dozen of hot cross buns "just like your grandma used to make," at this neighbourhood stronghold.


While this legendary Liberty Village bakeshop doesn't offer traditional hot cross buns in that they're neither a bun, nor do they feature a cross, they are cooking up a hot cross loaf that tastes just as nostalgic as the original for $12.
