Bobbie Sue's is Toronto's first all-mac and cheese eatery tucked away on Foxley just off Ossington in the compact space that was formerly Philip Sparks ' shop.
Housed in a colourful panelled shack, the quick service concept operates solely as a walk-up window.
Each order is prepared in just minutes by tossing together precooked noodles, sauce and add-ins that are then piled into a pie tin and flash cooked in a turbo oven until the top bubbles and browns.
The Classic Mac ($5.30/$8.40) is the foundation for eight other variations (a vegan version makes use of locally-made Nona's sauce instead). This is the one that will satisfy nostalgic cravings with a blend of five cheeses incorporated into bechamel sauce and curly cavatappi noodles.
The menu also boasts playful riffs on childhood faves including Green Trees ($6.50/$11) with broccoli and chili paste; Hamburger Who Lends a Hand ($7/$12) featuring ground beef, mushrooms, and gruyere; and perhaps kitschiest of them all, the Camp Mac ($7/$12) laced with a squirt of yellow mustard and studded with coins of all-beef hot dog.
Get a protein fix with options loaded with pulled pork, curried tuna and peas, or a Buffalo wings-inspired mac loaded with pulled smoked chicken, blue cheese and spiked with Frank's Red Hot Sauce.
In a nation that considers Kraft Dinner to be, well, "dinner" - I think what's most surprising about this place is that a mac n cheese-centric spot didn't exist before this. Cheesy carb-laden comfort foods only look more and more appealing as the cold weather sets in, and post-bar alternatives to poutine are always welcome.
