Sugar Loaf Bakery is a relatively new bakery/cafe in Leslieville/Riverside. All their baked good are made-in house. Plus, they serve brunch!
My brother and I dropped by for a coffee and some baked bites.
Earl Grey scone. For those who love earl grey, you’d be quite happy with this.
Guava croissant. Guava jam, delicious.
The unfortunate part lies with the coffee drinks. My mocha came with whipped cream, which a) whipped cream is a HUGE NO NO for me when it comes to any coffee drinks. Don’t be like Starbucks; and b) my intolerance for lactose. Had I known they put whipped cream in their drinks, I would have asked to have it omitted. I sucked it up because I felt it may have been rude to ask for a re-make.
I’ll stick to my cafes for coffee, but I don’t mind coming back to try their brunch or other baked goodies. Gluten-free and dairy-free options are available.
Edit: Revisited Sugar Loaf with Lisa for brunch. They offer a prix-fixe brunch for $18.50 where you get a choice of main, dessert and unlimited coffee or tea.
