Oh the joy of being on maternity leave while our neighbourhood finally gets the cafes and bakeries we so richly deserve.
There’s fabulous True Brew soups and sandwiches. There’s Celena’s Bakery where I understand the croissants are made in heaven. There’s the all-organic fair trade folks at Guru Coffee. And now, there is the Cozy Bakery and Cafe. (O.k. the sign on the southwest corner of Danforth and Woodbine still says Coffee Coffee but the new sign is coming!)
If you haven’t been in to the Cozy Bakery – you really should. Every morning the sisters Vera and Savicia, who used to own a cafe in Niagara on the Lake, are making fresh breads (treat your family to french toast using that egg bread and I promise you it will be a good day), cinnamon buns and pastries. Then there is the home-made soup (soon to be jarred and waiting for you to take home for dinner) and lasagnas (they make their own pasta). Much of it is organic. Much of it is vegetarian. All of it is 100% natural – no short cuts. They also do ‘savoury pastries’ which I have yet to try but am very intrigued about.
The owners are delightful and the space is plenty big enough for strollers etc. Drop by the DECA Make A Joyful Noise Parade this Sunday to taste some of their wares!
By the way – the owners are having some difficulty with parking. They’re using street parking, feeding the meter and moving the car. If you have a parking spot that you can spare (even some of the time) at the north end of Moberly or somewhere in that area, contact Mary-Margaret McMahon at firstname.lastname@example.org. There could be some delicious treats in it for you!
