Short and Sweet Bakeshop

Short & Sweet Bakeshop is sassy, sweet, and all of the good things.

Short & Sweet has all kinds of amazing pastries and sweet treats, all that are worthy for the ‘Gram.

They have locations on Avenue Road and inside the PATH.

Fancy some freshly-made doughnuts?

Glory Hole serves up fresh, handmade doughnuts at their Parkdale and Gerrard locations, all made with whole ingredients.

The inside of their doughnut shop is also super cute, if you’re looking for Instagram-worthy indoor photo spots in Toronto as well.

COPS Coffee & Doughnuts

COPS is another adorable doughnut shop in Toronto, and all their doughnuts are made from scratch daily.

Their location is just as Instagrammable as their doughnuts, especially if you’re a pink lover.

They’ve got 3 locations on Adelaide, Lansdowne, and in Riverside!

LOCATION: Various locations

Daan Go

Daan Go is the brainchild of Christopher Siu, who was on season 2 of Masterchef Canada Season 2!

They’re famous for their adorable character macarons, but they also have beautiful cakes and other pastries.

They have 1 downtown location in Kensington Market and 2 locations in Scarborough.

If you’re wondering what the name daan go means, it’s “cake” in Cantonese!

Fuwa Fuwa Pancakes in the Annex, Toronto

Fuwa Fuwa Pancakes

In the mood for some jiggly, jiggly Japanese soufflé pancakes?

Stop by Fuwa Fuwa in Toronto and enjoy these fluffy stacks of goodness in all their glory.

The word “fuwa” literally means “fluffy” in Japanese, and that’s exactly what you can expect with their delicious pancakes.

Their downtown locations are in the Annex and at Yonge & Eglinton, but they’ve also got locations in Mississauga and Vaughan.

LOCATION: Various locations

iHalo Krunch soft serve ice cream in Toronto

iHalo Krunch

The charcoal soft serve and cones at iHalo Krunch are probably one of the most unique and Instagram-worthy dessert finds you’ll get in Toronto.

The charcoal soft serve is coconut flavoured, and they also have ube, matcha, and vanilla soft serve available to swirl with your charcoal cone.

Dutch Dreams in Toronto

Dutch Dreams

I just love ice cream too much to not add one more Instagram-worthy ice cream spot on here.

Dutch Dreams is an ice cream spot you’ll find in midtown Toronto, and their flavours are completely kosher-friendly.

They serve up jazzed up ice cream cones that you can customize from the waffle cone to the toppings, and they’re totally worthy of being on your Instagram feed.

LOCATION: 36 Vaughan Rd, Toronto, ON

Eva’s Original Chimneys

Okay, I lied: here’s another ice cream spot in Toronto, but it’s more about the doughnut cones here than the ice cream.

Chimney cakes are a Hungarian pastry that’s crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and Eva’s makes them with all-natural and mostly organic ingredients.

You can get chimney cakes on their own here, or get them decked out with ice cream and all the toppings!

LOCATION: Various locations

Kekou Gelato in Toronto

Kekou Gelato

Kekou is one of the best gelato places in Toronto, and they’ve also got super cute and Instagram-worthy desserts.

The New El Furniture Warehouse Restaurant You Need to Check Out

Their menu is made up of mostly Asian flavours like Black Sesame and Thai Iced Tea, and the flavours rotate by the seasons!

I pretty much always stick to either the Hong Kong Milk Tea or Vietnamese Coffee flavours, but they have plenty of amazing flavours to choose from.

If you’re in the mood for bubble tea, they’ve got that as well.

They’ve also got plant-based options for my vegan friends out there, like Soursop and Mango.

Kekou’s OG location is on Queen West, but they now have a location in North York by Yonge & Finch.
