A shining star on both King East and Dovercourt Road, this bakeshop serves delicate pastries that bridge the space between “mouthwatering” and “looks to pretty to eat.” If you’re lucky, you might drop by on a day when birthday cake slices are in the display case — they’re only available when a staff member is turning another year older, and the cake’s availability turns their special day into your special day, too.

Address: 108 Dovercourt Road; 362 King Street East
