Delicious sweets

Love their sweets. The brownie and their version of Jos Louis are amazing, highly recommend if you’re a chocolate lover. I’ve also ordered a few birthday cakes from here, they never let me down.

However, the quiche bites and scones are a miss. I couldn’t even force myself to finish them. Also wish they had a menu posted or labelled the goods somehow. A bit ridiculous you need staff to walk you through all the items and flavours to know your options.

Vegan & gluten-free

Love the maple flavour. I just wish it’s more cinnamony… the cupcake itself was moist and I wouldn’t be able to tell it’s gluten-free if I didn’t know!

Delicious vegan cake

Loved the richness of the chocolate cake. Perfect for a birthday party and nice presentation. It is sweet but that worked for me and my guests!

The brownie with the custard layer was very good. The blueberry scone was a bit too dry for my taste. It would be nice if they added some seating.

Hit and miss

This isn’t my favourite place, I find the icing they use is way too sweet and some of the baked goods I’ve had from here were also sickeningly sweet or dry. I also had the weirdest customer service experience of my life here (former Junction location) when a cake I ordered was given to someone else and the interactions with the staff about it were…strange. But I direct every person I know with celiac to this place and they are so happy with it, they really fill a need for people with gluten intolerances (vegan or not). And I love their cookies!

Pros: They’ve nailed gluten free cookies, Celiac friendly for all my celiac friends, Really allergy conscious

Cons: Too much icing/too sweet, Customer service is hit and miss

Perfect copy of an OG sweet

Loved their "cheese and chive" scone, but what blew my mind was the vegan Jos Louis. Perfect in every way. It totally brought me back in time! Wish I lived closer

Pros: Friendly staff

Usually good

I have gone to Bunner's a few times and unfortunately I find it is a bit of a hit or miss. Some desserts have been delicious and others not so much. Maybe I've just been unlucky 🤷🏻‍♀️ Definitely want to go back and have my opinion improve!!

Can't get enough

I can't go to Kensington Market without stopping here. The raspberry squares and the soft serve are my fave.

Baked goods heaven. The cinnamon bun is the most popular and we can see why. The lemon and blueberry muffin was also amazing. Bit of a weird smell inside the bakery and no seating but a great treat. Lovely people working there.

Pros: Cinnamon bun, Muffins, Good levels of frosting!

Excellent Vegan & Gluten-Free Bakery

Great bakery! Everything is made 100% vegan and gluten-free and tastes amazing; I was a big fan of the nanaimo bars, they tasted just like the ones my mom used to make. Even our friend who isn’t vegan/gluten-free loved it.

The person who helped was really accommodating and super friendly. She helped us make our selections and even recommended other shops around the area to check out.

Overall experience was great, we’ll definitely be back!

Fresh & perfectly sweetened

The pastries are simply de-li-cious ! Many different kind of pastries offered. I'd recommend to come early in the morning to have the 1st pick :)

Good bakery for sweets

This is a great little bakery located in the heart of Toronto (note that this bakery is more focused on sweets and not so much things like loaves of bread, although there are some breads). Always lots of exciting options, including oat-based soft serve ice cream, cinnamon buns and Nanaimo bars. All food is vegan and gluten free. The ice cream is so silky and creamy. I loved it. Some of the baked goods are a little too sweet for me. I also found that a few treats were more obviously gluten free than others (e.g. the cinnamon bun was a bit more crumbly than a flour-based bun), but every option is still delicious. Make sure you get a good mixture of baked goods when you go!

Pros: Lots of tasty sweets, Soft serve ice cream

Great sweet treats

First thing I noticed was they were not full of sugar. I know it is a sweet shop but some cookies and baked goods in most places are just loaded with sugar and that is all you taste.
Here you get flavour and oh my goodness does it taste good.
A little pricey but I mean not by much. This is not your local grocery store sweets.
Staff was friendly.

Pros: Tasty , Lots of choices , Friendly staff

This place is an absolute gem!!!!!

We popped in to have a look. Ended up leaving with oats and blueberry muffin and the baby (cinnamon roll with frosting) - I wasn't sure whether to go for it as I am not a massive fan of frostings as they are way too sweet most of the time. But as I really like cinnamom rolls I decided to give it a go and omg this must have been the best cinnamon roll I have had. That frosting was sooo delicious, not too sweet anf very soft. Great consistency. Cannot wait to have some more when I am in Toronto next time.

Great bakery

Always happy with their baked goods and gluten-free is a bonus for my celiac friend. I've been a fan of their desserts since before I went vegan, which is a testament to how good they are.

Pros: Baked goods are so good that you can't tell they'r

Cons: Dinner pockets are usually too dry.

Summer soft serve

Sometimes they do 2 for 1 with the day old cakes. Their soft serve ice cream is genuinely one of the best I have ever had - incredibly silky and tasty (I think it’s coconut based?). Cookies aren’t great!

Cons: A little overpriced

All vegan and gluten free

Good vegan sweets and a great selection (cupcakes, muffins, cookies...). For gluten free very good, but if you don't mind gluten there are better places to go in my opinion.

Pros: All vegan

baked goods galore

Everything I've tried here tastes great, but if I were to choose I would get a baked good from Cosmic Treats just down the street instead. Cinnamon buns are good although I wish there was a way they could warm them up a bit.
