really suprised I havent seen this suggestion yet. EPI is a great bakery that is run out in North York, the baker himself is a classically trained french baker who has come to canada in the past 10 years. the only place I know that carry their bread downtown is Leslieville Cheese (both locations), the way i describe it to my friends is "like ace baguettes when they were good 10 years ago". also the crossaints are fantastic. much much better than freds, theut, ace.......although this ma maison does sound like it might be worth the mission.
