Join me on a stroll down West Queen West, arguably Toronto's hippest neighborhood. We'll get pastries at four amazing spots that range from luxurious French to southern Italian. You'll learn the shocking history of your sweets and enjoy a photoshoot in Graffiti Alley, where Toronto's best street art is hidden. We'll wrap up making our own Argentinian alfajores treat.
I have lived on four continents and have a knack for finding the best sweets on them all. I run a blog EatingThroughTO.com to help Torontonians and travelers find the best local eats. Find me on instagram @travelingsomm, or @eatingthroughTO I have a few foodie friends who run some event with me in the city, and they co-host the experience on occasion.

Polaroid camera Take home a polaroid of yourself posing in front of your favorite street art.
The bakeries change, but a few of my faves are Sud Forno and Nügateau. Graffiti Alley showcases Toronto's best street artists, and I'll also take you out exploring the local scene as you snap a souvenir polaroid to take home.
