Sugar Loaf Bakery

Sugar Loaf Bakery

Yesterday, on a gorgeous summer Sunday, a few friends and I decided to hit up a relatively new bakery called Sugar Loaf Bakery in an up and coming Toronto neighborhood of Riverside.  A beautiful interior (the ceiling is partially lined with tin ceiling tiles) and a counter full of baked goods, cakes, breads and jams its hard to resist indulging in a few sweets.  Having just had dragonboat practice, we were starving and since the bakery serves brunch we couldn’t help but order some breakfast.  Trying to stay on the healthy side I went with the gluten free buckwheat galette (crepe) stuffed with eggs, tomato chutney and peameal bacon – it was just enough carbs to satisfy me but let’s be honest, I needed something sweet to end my meal!  When you visit you will notice right away that this bakery takes traditional baked items and gives them a unique twist.  Some of their pastries include: earl grey scones, guava stuffed croissants, cream of earl grey jars and brookies (yes, that’s a chocolate chip cookie and brownie in one).  I ordered the pao de mel since I’ve never seen nor tasted anything like it.  Its two bite sized spiced honey cakes with a layer of dulce de leche and covered in chocolate – oddly enough the taste reminds me of Christmas fruit cake which I actually enjoy 🙂
