Diving into the bustling St Lawrence Market to discover the best of the best.

Elegant urban living meets Old Toronto charm in one of the city's most dynamic neighbourhoods! Sixty Colborne is coming to Toronto's East side, and with occupancy set for next year, you're surely starting to familiarize yourself with this amazing community. A short stroll away, the St. Lawrence Market is the culinary epicenter of the city, and is home to over 120 vendors and merchants, all offering their own incredible selection of great food. How does one even begin to navigate this sprawling market and find their favourites? That's what we're here to help with as we take a look at our top five picks from the Market. This list is sure to keep you returning again and again, until you've tried each and every meal - at least twice!

Carousel Bakery

A fixture in the market for multiple decades, Carousel Bakery is home to the world-famous peameal bacon sandwich. Get in line and get your back bacon fix as thick slices are piled high between freshly-baked buns. Widely hailed as the best peameal sandwich in the city, this may quickly become a go-to when living at Sixty Colborne.

St. Urbain Bagel

For a Montreal-style bagel baked fresh in downtown Toronto, St. Urbain Bagel is as good as it gets! With over 700 bagels baked on-site every day, you can pick up a dozen or have one toasted and slathered in cream cheese for you on the spot!

Uno Mustachio

Another epic sandwich to add to the list, Mustachio serves up an Italian Veal and Eggplant Parm that is consistently voted as Toronto's best! With roots in the market since 1995, everything is made from scratch daily and the sandwiches are as filling as they are delicious. Make sure you use two hands as the countless layers of meat, tomato sauce, and vegetables tower between the buns! Are you up to the challenge?

Buster's Sea Cove

Yet another storied institution on our list is the one and only Buster's Sea Cove. First opened 1992, they have been serving up tasty seafood treats ever since! The lobster roll is a fan favourite, consisting of a more than generous scoop of lobster salad on a fresh roll. Served with a pile of fries, you definitely won't leave hungry!

Churrasco of the St. Lawrence

When it comes time for dessert, Churrasco is the spot to head to. They have been baking Portuguese custard tarts for over twenty years and do not plan on stopping any time soon! These treats are available from other vendors in the market but none of them live up to the hype like these do. Not to be passed up, be sure to leave room after your meal for one of these tasty treats.
