While driving into Toronto, imagine my surprise to see a bakery that had a big sign advertising "NUT FREE"br /
Being exhausted from 4 days of travelling, I didn't think to take down the address or name but once I came to my senses, I was determined to find it /
Today!! SUCCESS!!!!br /
Gawd I could not believe it and must have asked the woman there about 10 times to reassure me that everything is nut /
Well 40$ later, I walked out carrying cakes,breads, rolls, and sundry other things.....eating a cookie actual store bought nut free cookie!!!!!br /
The name (for those in or around the area) is Richman's Bakerybr /
4119 Bathurst Streetbr /
416-636-9710br /
They are opened until 9 pm most nights but are not opened on Friday night, or Saturday. /p

Thank you so much for letting us know about this nut free bakery. I have tried to find a nut free bakery for almost 3 years. I will definitely give them a try.

WOW, I'm going to check it out immediately!
Do they do birthday cakes etc? If they do, they'll be getting lots of business from many many family members!
Thanks for posting.

I wonder if they do mail order? Maybe I'll call them and find out. If not, it may just be worth a trip to Toronto to check them out!

Isn't this fantastic! I can't believe I haven't heard of them before.Thank you for passing this one on, I'll be sure to pay them a visit. I would still feel safer baking my own cakes and stuff, but it will be nice to know in a pinch.

Amy if you want I will give them a call to find out for you and to find out if they know of one in Long Island. They may have that information. I asked them if I could post their information on the boards so I think they would be very excited to hear of the response.
Redtruck, I saw examples of all kinds of specialty cakes there. I am sure that they make birthday cakes as well.
Torontosue, I know how you feel but after being there and talking to them, I feel very comfortable with their products.
Once again I have to say that they were most helpful. Because they are a kosher bakery I suspect that most of their baking is milk free also (so that they can be eaten with both dairy and meat).

Here's another one:
Ammmazing Donuts
3772 Bathurst Street
North York, Ontario
Tel. (416)398-9119
We read about them in the Anaphylaxis Network newsletter and make a point of going whenever we're in Toronto. They have cake, cookies, muffins, as well as donuts.
Thanks for the information about Richman's. TWO nut-free bakeries in Toronto - life is good!

Sharon, that would be great! If they want to move into the 21st century, they should get a website! They'd probably have more business than they know what to do with!

I have family members in Toronto and every time I go there, we stock up on tons of stuff from the bakery. And when relatives come to the states, they always know to bring goodies for me. I have never been to the donut place, since they were closed when I was there last.
But now that it looks like Pastry Land N' More in Brookline, Mass. is gone, I was wondering if anyone knows if the places in Toronto ship their products?
