Local Flavours - Leah's Home Baking

I love seeing the way our neighbourhood continues to thrive and grow.  Just three weeks ago, Leah's Home Baking opened, down the street from CocoaLatte.  Leah Kalish, the owner, has been a fixture on the Toronto baking scene for years, operating without a storefront and supplying gourmet grocers and the local cognescenti with all manner of sweet treats.  Most famously, Mick Jagger, in town for a concert, tracked Leah down to stock up on her biscotti.

Now locals and vistors alike can stock up at will at Leah's charming and cosy bakery.  Selling everything from adorable mushroom meringues, cupcakes and peanut butter-chocolate Rice Krispie squares, along with those famous biscotti, Leah also serves up savory dishes such as miniature chicken pot pies and samosas.

Leah, a diminutive brunette with a big smile, is there ready to say hello or help with your selection, and the helpful staff are eager to please.

Leah's Home Baking truly is a treat!
