Cheesemongers in TO . . . any hidden gems?

I'm a big fan of the Alex Farm on the Danforth-the staff are sometimes a little cold, but they're knowledgeable, and I've never had anything but great product from there.

And I agree to the various Costco endorsements-for standard cheeses, it's a bargain.

Buddha Dog? Thoughts? Death Watch?

The hot dogs taste great, and you're paying for quality ingredients. The place is called Budda Dog, not Buddha Cafe.

Honestly, I don't get why you'd complain about their business model.

That said, I've been to their Picton location a bunch of times, and have had many great lunches there, whereas I've been the the Roncesvalles one twice, and was fairly unimpressed.

best burgers in T.O.

Sadly, Big Stan's is closed now, as are the majority of stalls in that plaza.
