The bakery and ice cream production sits in the back and as you hem and haw over your ice cream choice, you can see resting racks, bags of flour, ovens, and mixers and tubs, and all the special ingredients that have gone into your treats, ready to go.

Bunner's Bake Shop has opened a new location in Kensington Market that I'm guessing is going to be more popular than the original in the Junction . There's something about Bunner's that seems particularly suited to the neighbourhood. Maybe the veganism or the fact that everything is gluten-free; maybe it's their style (a little Pitchfork twee- hello chalkboard paint and some kind of colourful shredded paper streamer garland).

Le Gourmand is a bustling cafe near busy Queen and Spadina that's known for having some of the city's best cookies and other baked goods. They serve a loyal customer base of nearby condo residents and office workers, some of whom have been coming here for over a decade. They apparently get pretty miffed if an item gets removed from the menu.

Serano Bakery is the quintessential Greek bakery; family-run, bred from authentic recipes, and filled with lots--and I mean lots--of food. No dainty little lone pastries here. The first thing I noticed after entering Serano was the sheer volume of baked goods in the space. Piles of biscotti, trays upon trays of baklava and bread everywhere. It's as if the space was saying, "Here, eat!"

Neighbourhoods
The strip between University Avenue and Bathurst Street used to be the "cool" shopping district in Toronto, where artists and artisans sold their wares. Here you will find art galleries, funky up-and-coming fashion designers, textile stores, antique stores, pawn shops, chic furniture, second-hand bookshops, cool bars, cafes, diners and restaurants. The textile stores are still there, but the high rents have forced almost every one else out. Now it's mostly chain stores. However, if you go west of Bathurst, you'll enter the district known as "West Queen West" where the "creative class" hang their shingles these days. Boundaries: The edge of this neighborhood runs along Queen Street West from University to Niagara and is located about a 15-minute walk from Union Station or the Eaton Centre.

St. Lawrence is a formerly industrial district that was revitalized in the 1970s. This neighborhood, which Jane Jacobs helped plan, is hailed as a successful blend of residential and commercial. Its focal point, St. Lawrence Market, is the city's biggest fresh-food market, which formerly served as a city hall and jail.

Toronto sits on Lake Ontario, and its downtown has easy access to the waterfront. Though the neighborhood does have a beach, it's more artistic than practical (Sugar Beach is man-made and does not permit swimming). Nevertheless, the waterfront community has several interesting cultural centers, including the cutting edge Power Plant as well as the Harbourfront Centre, which offers many free, family-friendly (yet interesting) events. Another great destination in the Waterfront District is the Queen's Quay Terminal, a former shipping terminal that now features the Museum of Inuit Art. Boundaries: The Waterfront District is located along Queens Quay between Spadina and Yonge.
