I recently discovered Dedicated Gluten-Free & Dairy-free Bakery and I am blown away by the quality of their products. Hands down, this is the best gluten-free bread and buns I have ever had.

They are fresh, soft, and don't crumble like the grocery store frozen stuff does. I also love that this is a local business.

In addition to their amazing gluten-free offerings, the bakery also has a lot of nut, dairy, and egg-free options.

As someone who has dietary restrictions, I appreciate being able to enjoy a variety of baked goods that accommodate my needs. The lemon squares are my weakness – they are so delicious!

Not only are the products top-notch at Dedicated Gluten-Free & Dairy-free Bakery, but the customer service is excellent as well. Everyone I have interacted with has been very friendly and efficient.

I highly recommend this bakery to anyone looking for high-quality, allergy-friendly baked goods.

Honestly, all of the  baked goods at COBS are to die for. The fresh baked loaves are amazing, with tons of options to choose from. The chocolate croissants are particularly delicious, and the regular croissants are super buttery and flakey.

I really appreciate that COBS is commit to using fresh, handcrafted bread and treats made with carefully sourced ingredients. It's clear that they put a lot of care and attention into everything they produce, and it shows in the taste and texture of their products.

I also love that COBS cares about giving back to their community. They donate leftover baked goods to local charities.

If you're in the mood for some seriously delicious baked goods and treats, you have to check out Mitchell's bakery. This place has it all ,a wide variety of baked goods, a deli, hot and cold prepared meals, frozen meals, groceries, and so much more.

I recently stopped by and was blown away by the selection. The bread is top-notch, and the crumpets are to die for.

The homemade meals to go are a lifesaver when I don't feel like cooking, and the donuts are the perfect indulgence. The tabouli is fresh and flavorful, and the croissants are super buttery and flakey. I also love that they have a variety of frozen food options that are quick and easy to heat up.

But the best part about Mitchell's? The staff. They are so friendly and helpful, and they really go above and beyond to make sure you have a great shopping experience.

The prices are also reasonable, and I've found that even the discounted items are fresher and better quality than what you can find at retail stores.

Bottom line: if you're in the area, you have to stop by Mitchell's. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. Happy eating!

Beechwood Doughnuts

If you're in the mood for some seriously delicious doughnuts, you have to check out Beechwood Doughnuts. These guys know how to make a killer doughnut.

I recently tried one of their buttercream-topped creations and let me tell you, it was divine. The buttercream works so well in these doughnuts – they are hands down the best I've had in Ontario.

One thing that sets Beechwood Doughnuts apart is their wide variety of flavors. They've got something for everyone, and at reasonable prices too. And the best part? Everything is vegan. No animal products here.

I've been coming to Beechwood Doughnuts for years now, and I can honestly say that their doughnuts are always top-notch.

The flavors are amazing and the doughnuts are not too sweet or greasy. They always come up with new varieties and change some of their menu every season, which keeps me coming back to see what's new.

If you want to try their doughnuts, I recommend coming before lunch because they tend to sell out in the late afternoons.

In short, Beechwood Doughnuts is a true gem and I highly recommend checking them out if you're in the area. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

I recently visited Con Gusto bakery and I have to say, the quality of their products are outstanding Everything we tried was absolutely delicious, their apple danishes and carrot cake were my favorites so far.

Best part about Con Gusto is the service. The staff are accommodating, kind, and helpful. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience, and it really made a difference.

My husband and I have been coming back to Con Gusto on a regular basis, and we've tried a number of their products. The chocolate croissant is the best croissant I've ever had, and the calabrese bread is so good that we can't wait to try other kinds.
