Vegan Adventure: Tori’s Bakeshop, Toronto

I am writing this from the lovely Tori’s Bakeshop in Toronto. It is adorable, fully vegan and I am in love (not just because soft French music plays in the background on this Sunday morning)

I had a delightful cinnamon bun and an Australian drink called a flat white. And a lovely overheard conversation about living in the coolest cities in the world. Smiles.

Chocolate Delight.

Recently I made an amazing discovery:

I would love to go there someday! I’ll have to add it to my list of restaurants I want to visit before death. I the mean time though I discovered their cookbook! It was quick to arrive at my local library and I baked my second goodie from it today, Brownies! (the first was “johnnycakes” which turned out more like scones aha, that’s what happens when you substitute flours). They turned out quite well, a little sweeter and less dense/fudgy than I like (I was a big fan of the two-bite brownies in my pre-vegan days) but good nonetheless. Yum! Gluten-free, vegan, soy free… : D
