There are few people who don’t appreciate fresh baking. Whether you prefer the flaky pastry of a croissant filled with chocolate spread, hot out-of-the-oven bread, or little custard-filled tarts, unless you are celiac, chances are you can’t walk into a bakery and walk out without buying a treat to eat immediately.
When it comes to breads and pastries, Mississauga is home to dozens of bakeries, from local mom-and-pop shops to retail chains. These establishments serve up a variety of baking, many with a specific cultural flavour to match the diversity of Mississauga residents.
When it comes to choosing a bakery, we think it’s important to follow your nose first. If it doesn’t smell like a bakery, the scent of hot breads, pies or cookies in the oven, then we don’t trust that treats are made in-house. This brings us to our second criterium, which is taste. Freshness and quality is discerned at the tip of the tongue. Your mouth should water when you bite into a delicious baked treat. The flavours should make it impossible to only have one bite. Over time, you will be able to tell if a bakery is consistent and worthy of your hard-earned money.
