I am new to Toronto (Thornhill, actually) and love cinnamon , walnut, or chocolate babka or yeast-type dough crescents pastry.
I Ilved in Montreal many years ago and Cheskies on Bernard had great babkas. There was also a tiny shop on Cote st. Luc Road near Earnscliffe where the owner baked a fabulous babka; sadly, the owner died and that was the end of it.
We lived in Ottawa until recently where there was no babka available worth eating, only horrible greasy ersatz babka made by Wawel Bakery in Montreal.
Thanks for your suggestions!
