2425 Truscott Dr, Mississauga ON
I'm sure you will agree, there's nothing quite like freshly baked bread; the smell, the taste, the warmth, it's all so very good!
I definitely heart bakeries. When I was growing up there was a lovely little bakery called Hot n' Crusty where the breads were baked fresh every morning; it was always such a treat to go there.
Recently we discovered Truscott Italian Bakery & Deli - a quaint little bakery right in the middle of a parking lot on the border of Oakville/Mississauga. It's been there only eight years yet it appears as though the parking lot was built around it.
I imagine though, that the past eight years have been enormously successful judging from the steady stream of customers at 8 in the morning!
The cappuccino on the patio sounded like a great idea!
The breads! Rows of crusty, floured, multigrained loaves. I wanted to try them all...and in due time I will, but to begin....we got some fresh buns, croissants, and this:
Spacatelli....which I've never had before, but which was undeniably fresh (and still warm!!!).
The trays of muffins, pies, cookies and pastries were astounding!
I've yet to try their hot-table items, but I got their mini cakes/tarts for a tea party recently and they not only looked pretty they were pretty delectable, too.
Then there's their deli meat counter which boasts a variety of European meats, the huge selection of pastas (I recently purchased some corn pasta [gluten free] and added to it the all natural Mediterranean Garden's "fiery hot arrabiata" pasta sauce, which was fantastic), fancy imported drinks (lemonades and juices), farmed fresh eggs, and of course a massive collection of olives and olive oils! Heaven!
With our morning breakfast made complete with the addition of a divine "elephant ear" - stuffed full of chocolate - we were ready to start the weekend!
I'm sure many start their weekends this way and I for one can't wait to do it again!
