A Sweet Tour of Kensington

Chrystal from Chrystal-Clear had been talking about her upcoming sweet-themed tour through Kensington, and it sounded too great to pass up! I joined her on the weekend for a Tasty Tours Toronto walk, which included some samples of desserts and treats. Delicious!

Our meeting place was a bakery that I have passed many times, but was totally not aware of what goodies are sold from within. Audrey, our tour guide, introduced the morning, and the small group had a chance to meet each other, which was such a warm starting point.

I had received an email the day before the tour, reminding me of the booking and the details, which included the weather forecast and tips to ensure I was prepared for the morning, was a really cute touch. I also received a follow up email a couple of days after the tour, which was personalised for our group, which just added to the sense of connection from the morning.

The tour takes the group to six locations in and around the Kensington Market area, and each store provides the group with a sample of their wares. Audrey tells you about their business, the treats they sell and usually make on-site, and she also has many interesting facts about sweets, sugar, and this particular local area of Toronto.

The tours run every second Sunday, and Audrey keeps them to a small group, which makes it an easy outing for a morning treat. It would also be awesome for a hen's afternoon. Audrey also does Chocolate tours in the Trinity Bellwoods area, every other Saturday...sounds delicious!

I was provided with a tour from Tasty Tours, as a travel blogger. The thoughts in this post, however, are entirely my own.


  1. Omnomnom! The treats in the photos look delicious. I'll be in Toronto next year, so this is something to try out :)

    1. Oh yeah, you would love it! A great array of sweets were included on our stops - delicious!
