You’re likely spending more time at home and missing local shops, bars, and restaurants you tend to frequent. Luckily, there’s a solution for that! Many Toronto businesses deliver straight to your home, and we’ve gathered a list of the best ones to try.
Craig’s Cookies in Parkdale is steps from residents of 145 & 79 Jameson Ave. Actor Craig Pike started his bakery out of his home, creating fluffy chocolate chip cookies stuffed with a variety of childhood favourites: Pop Tarts, Nutella, and Hershey’s Mini Eggs. Immediate delivery via Doordash is available, but if you can wait for next day delivery that’s also an option at a reduced price. If you enjoy puttering around in the kitchen, consider ordering their dough and enjoy a fun and easy baking project. As a plus, Craig’s Cookies also delivers Pilot Roaster’s coffee beans to enjoy while you snack.
