The Best New Bakeries in Toronto

The best new bakeries that cropped up in Toronto this past year gave us Asian fusion macarons and miso butter tarts, danish pastries that go way beyond danishes, all-natural donuts, banh mi croissants and more locally made sourdough than you could ever ask for.

Here are the best new bakeries that opened in Toronto in 2017.
