The Best New Bakeries in Toronto

The best new bakeries in Toronto got us through the misery that was 2020 with butter — lots of butter. Fancy croissants came back in a big way, while businesses specializing in delicious baked goods from Portugal, Argentina, Turkey, and Brazil gave us a taste of abroad during lockdown. 

Here are the best new bakeries in Toronto.
