The Best Greek Bakeries in Toronto

The best Greek bakeries in Toronto are masters of flaky phyllo, spinach-stuffed pies and honey-drenched desserts like loukoumades. While mostly concentrated around Greektown, you'll find some of these longtime fixtures scattered in other neighbourhoods north too.

Here are the best Greek bakeries in Toronto.

This destination on Coxwell specializes in one thing only: loukoumades. Ballissimo's take on this Greek dessert is phenomenal: soft, chewy, and crispy, you can get them with a bunch of toppings like cream cheese and Nutella. Plus they’re vegan.
