Randy's

Randy's

Little Jamaica’s legendary spot for boxes of Jamaican turnovers has been baking up beef, chicken and veggie varieties of this pastry since 1979. The reputation of Randy’s beef patty precedes it, so expect a steady lineup outside this tiny shop.

The Chong family ran a bakery in Jamaica for years before immigrating to Canada. In 1981 they set up shop in Kensington Market before heading to Scarborough to pursue wholesale. They still stock Golden Patty on Baldwin Street but have been slinging their famous patties from their shop on Progress Ave. ever since.

Pop into this neighbourhood institution and you’ll probably meet the patty queen herself. Georgina Hamilton, owner and sole baker at Caribbean Queen, has been making her delectable beef, chicken, or veggie patties from scratch in Bloordale for years.

Fahmee Bakery

Fahmee Bakery

This famous patty purveyor has been fuelling the city with rectangular beef patties since 1970. Subway stations like Bathurst, Islington and Warden may be this wholesaler’s claim to fame, but you can also find their patties at restaurants like Roywoods and Fahmee stores in Scarborough and on Lansdowne.


Allan's Pastry Shop

Allan's Pastry Shop

Peanut Plaza’s go-to bakery is famous for its coco bread sandwiches and curry goat patties, which you’d be remiss not to try. You can find their flaky pastries at restaurants like Aunt Elsie’s and Mr. Jerk. Their contributions to the Don Mills and Wilson subway station bake shops are severely underrated.

What started as a pandemic-time home business delivering pot pies and beef patties to customers’ doors is now a full-fledged store. You can pick up a box of Peter Pham’s vegan and beef patties from its food hall stall on Eglinton Ave. East.

Allwyn's Bakery on Queen

Allwyn's Bakery on Queen

Come for the jerk sauce, stay for the patties at this Caribbean bakery with takeout counters around the city. Beef patties on coco bread or by the dozens have been the family’s specialty since first setting up shop in a Don Mills plaza over 20 years ago.


Patty Time Lawrence East

Patty Time Lawrence East

This small, unassuming strip mall storefront on Lawrence East has been whipping up patties stuffed with juicy and flavourful seasoned beef and chicken. The fact that these pastries consistently come piping hot seals the deal; just make sure to bring cash.

Patty Stop

Patty Stop

Head to Port Union for the famous stuffed patties from this family-run takeout counter. With a flaky crust and some unconventional fillings including Canadian cheese and mayo, it’s no wonder they got a shout out from Drake a few months after they first opened in 2020.
