Toronto bakeries with tarts that'll satisfy your sweet tooth

The art of the tart is a serious thing. Some people spend years trying to perfect the balance of buttery flaky pastry with sweet filling. Others just look for the best place to buy one. Here are a few of our favourite Toronto bakeries serving up tasty tarts.

Sanremo Bakery Inc

374 Royal York Rd, Etobicoke, ON M8Y 2R3

San Remo Bakery is one of Etobicoke's best kept secrets. This Royal York Road bakery does everything well, but truly excels at making butter tarts. The melt-in-your-mouth pastry is filled with a gooey centre that isn't cloyingly sweet. This tasty tart is totally worth the trip to the end of the subway line.

Patisserie Sebastien

3306 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4N 2L6

Patisserie Sébastien is known for its incredible croissants, but if you can tear yourself away from those, you will discover an incredible array of home made tarts. With the perfect marriage of tart and sweet, its lemon meringue tart is the best in midtown.

Andrea's Gerrard St. Bakery

635 Gerrard St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1Y2

Andrea's Gerrard Street Bakery is becoming legendary in Riverdale for its delicious butter tarts and chocolate peanut butter tarts, among other confections.
