There’s no doubt: Fall is a season of indulgence! Whether diving into dessert after a turkey dinner, sipping on a cup of farm-fresh cider, or digging into pumpkin-spiced baked goods from a local cafe or bakery, there are countless ways to satisfy your sweet tooth in Vaughan. Throughout this one-day itinerary, we’re guiding you around some of the City’s best sweet spots: pun intended!
Start your day off with a stop at Balzac’s Coffee Roasters, located in the quaint and picturesque village of Kleinburg. Inspired by the European influence of the community, this location transports you to a cool, quiet cafe on the streets of a historic city. But that’s not the only reason we love this location! The snacks and goodies are phenomenal. Everything from the cookies to muffins are sure to thrill your taste buds, and satisfy cravings we know you’ve been toting around.
This stop will have you feeling like little Charlie in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Make your way to Chocolats Favoris! What opened in 1979 as an artisanal shop for traditional crafted chocolate in Lévis has grown to become a network of awe-inspiring chocolate stores across the country. These locations offer not two, but 12 varieties of real chocolate for ice cream dipping, as well as a variety of cookies, chocolate bars, fondue, ice cream cakes, and so much more. This is one place that every chocolate lover needs to visit.
Next, take your sweet tooth to the aroma of the Caribbean Islands. Known for its traditional Jamaican dishes, Orlando’s Restaurant and Grill offers a wide variety of mouth-watering desserts. From Jamaican fruit cake to coconut-lime or mango cheesecake and pineapple upside-down cake, there is absolutely no way you aren’t going to be transported to the lush beaches of Jamaica with these delicious treats.
It’s been a truly satisfying day and why not top off the day with a stop at Sugarhill Desserts? Just because summer is behind us, doesn’t mean that we can’t indulge in cold treats. Tantalize your taste buds with a waffle and ice cream combination, or a decadent chocolate sundae, or a piece of New York’s finest cheesecake – whatever you’re craving, Sugarhill Desserts is sure to satisfy you. Just don’t forget your appetite!
