I was looking for something sweet and had asked my sister if she had any suggestions for bakeries in the area. She pointed me in the direction of Artsy Baker (255 Industrial Parkway S, Unit #5, Aurora ON L4G3V5). By the name alone I was all for it and I was not disappointed. When I arrived to see all their custom cakes, cookies, cupcakes and Decked Out Donuts I knew right away that these are some seriously talented individuals, but also very friendly and helpful. I grabbed half a dozen of their decked out donuts and shared them with the family. Thank you.
I'm a coffee drinker, I really enjoy a good cup of coffee and that is what Sam James Coffee is about. There are a few Sam James Coffee locations around Toronto. I tried the Toronto St Shop location; 15 Toronto Street, Toronto. The shop is tucked away a bit, I almost walked past it. I love the simplicity of their shop. The custom white painted machines with the chrome exposed Is a really simple design that I found looked quite nice. How was the coffee? They made me a great lattè. When I am back in the city I will be definitely be hitting them up again.
