It’s National S’mores Day today and Toronto is taking the celebrations to the next level.
Paying tribute to the nostalgic summertime treat, these bakeries, brunch spots, and dessert houses have taken the classic combination of marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker and remixed it in all new ways.
The deep dish graham cracker crust filled with chocolate ganache and encircled by fluffy peaks of brûléed marshmallow is just one of unique desserts (also find doughnuts, macarons and more) that riff on the campfire classic at this Yonge and Lawrence area bakery.
Address: 3429 Yonge Street, Toronto

Fireside essentials assembled into a compact kit by Sullivan & Bleeker are way better than taking a pillow worth of marshmallows portaging. Did I mention the graham crackers are locally made and the chocolate is top notch too? Buy them exclusively at Pusateri’s locations across the GTA.
