What do cookies ‘n cream donuts, cookie dough bites, pizza pockets, and PB&J muffins all have in common? They’re ALL REALLY tasty! But, they’re all on the Sweet Hart menu and there’s lots more. Just looking at their pictures online made me really hungry and very tempted to order something. If none of those sounded interesting to you, I have to two things to say:

  1. I’m shocked, but to each their own.
  2. You should definitely check their custom cake menu. They have a snickers cake!

You want to know their location?

They are located just east of Bathurst and Dundas in Kensington Market. If you can’t make it to their store, check out this list of shops that carry their items.

8. The Butternut Baking Co.

If you’re looking for a bakery that is all naturally sweetened then you have to visit The Butternet Baking Co. They have a huge selection of Paleo and Keto options as well as the traditional baked items. They also have some really cool treats like: oreo mini donuts, marshmallow brownie squares, and Twix cookie sammies. On top of this they have a savoury menu as well as a LOT of cakes! The one cake that caught my eye right away was the Oreo Cookies n’ Cream Cake because these are hard to come by in the gluten-free universe.

They are located just east of Keel and Dundas. If you can’t make it to their store, check out this list of shops that carry their items.
