New to Greenwood

Welcome to the neighbourhood. Our young family has been on Linnsmore for a few years. Danforth/Greenwood retail has been making slow progress and continues to struggle to keep up with the amazing pace of the residential improvements.
For meats I recommend Royal Beef. The shop has been around forever and provides excellent and rare cuts as well. Located closer to Woodbine near East Lynn Park.
I also recommend Meat Dept on Danforth east of Broadview which will be right across the road from a rather large LCBO now being built. Meat Dept is amazing for selection and service. Pricey but good. Also known for ready made bbq chicken. Beautiful layout inside!
For bakeries I like Celena's closer to Woodbine across from the park. A younger couple owns this shop. Its been around for 2 or 3 years. Good selection of breads, desserts, quiche, etc..
Cozy Cafe Bakery right across is also okay.
My favourite Danforth bakery is probably Dough, closer to Broadview but worth the walk. Amazing breads, cinnamon rolls are unbelievable. I think are now doing pizzas closer to the weekends. You must go there.
