The top 5 new matcha bakeries and cafes in Toronto

The top new matcha bakeries and cafes in Toronto let you treat yourself to creamy, luscious and often grassy tasting matcha. You can find this finely ground Japanese green tea in beverages, baked goods and ice cream at eateries all around the city, but these spots are relatively new to the city. Why not pop by and say hello?

Here are my picks for the top new matcha bakeries and cafes in Toronto.

Tendou Matcha & Dessert Cafe
This Markham cafe serves up lots of tasty, matcha-flavoured treats. There's everything from green-hued soft serve and sundaes to creme brulĂŠe and opera cake. Get ready to indulge here.

Tsujiri
Tsujiri is a Japanese chain that opened its first North American store on Dundas, in the heart of what some call Little Tokyo. This spot continues to attract huge lineups for its creamy tea and huge array of matcha-infused treats.

Matcha Tea & Dessert
As its name suggests, this spot on Spadina (just south of College) deals in all things matcha. Along with its hot and cold beverages, head here for roll cakes, sponge cake with a creamy matcha interior, matcha lava cake and of course, soft serve.

Royaltea
This chain from Jiangmen, China, doesn't specialize in matcha, but it offers a slew of matcha-infused menu items. If you want something Instagram-worthy, grab a matcha lightbulb bubble tea (yes, it's served in a lightbulb). And go for the matcha crepe cake if you're craving dessert.

Light Cafe
Light Cafe, from Taiwan, might be most famous for its cotton candy coffee, but it also has lots of matcha on the menu. Grab a towering matcha smoothie or go for something more indulgent, like a matcha red bean waffle.
