If you like bread (really, who doesn’t?) you’re going to fall for We Love Toast, Canada’s first artisanal toast bar. Located inside Stackt Market the spot was founded by Nigerian-born, two-time Olympian Segun Makinde. For those with a sweet tooth, there’s the classic comfort toast made with melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon maple syrup and honey; if you’re more of a savoury person, there’s the beet and avo toast and an ice cream toast topped with (you guessed it!) ice cream, nutella, chocolate chips and chocolate and caramel drizzle.
