During a 3-month stay in Canada, I went on a quest to track down the best croissant in Toronto.

This carb-fueled journey brought me first to the steps of Mabel’s Bakery on Roncesvalles Avenue on the city’s west end (super cute neighborhood, by the way!).

When you walk inside, Mabel’s Bakery is small and has a laid-back, neighborly feel.

The wall to your right is lined with an assortment of freshly baked breads.

There are two small tables, so it’s not really a great place to sit around for a while and chat with a friend or work on your laptop. It feels much more like a grab-and-go type of place.

At the counter, you can order from the menu on the wall, but they have lots of pre-made meals both in the deli case and in a fridge behind you. It’s a great place to buy meals ahead of time to heat up for dinner during the week.

Also, gotta appreciate their eco-friendly pasta stir sticks!

I ordered a latte with almond milk and 2 shots of espresso. It was pretty good, but I thought even with 2 shots it was rather weak on the coffee.

Now, to the croissant:

It was larger than average (always a plus) and perfectly crisp. But there wasn’t enough butter flavor. It wasn’t the best I’ve had. On a scale of 1-5, I’d rate it a 3.

I also snagged a free sample of their raspberry pie. It had a great texture and crust but tasted like they didn’t add ANY sugar—very tart!

Although I did frequent Mabel’s thanks to its proximity to where I was staying, nothing I tried there particularly wowed me. Still a cute place I wouldn’t mind stopping by again!
