The Best Spanakopita in Toronto

The best spanakopita in Toronto are the most delicious versions of this traditional Greek phyllo pie. Fun to say and equally fun to eat, these crispy creations come in different styles—some prefer them in squares, others in triangles—but regardless of the shape, you’ll definitely be devouring a pocket full of cheese and a whole lot of spinach. 

Here's the best spanakopita in Toronto.

The cheesy, gooey Cheese Boat might steal the limelight at this Pape Village bakery, but don’t forget about their made-from-scratch spanakopita. Like everything else made from phyllo here, these pies are baked fresh daily.
