Discount Profile: bloomer’s
With so many new restaurants to try every month in Toronto, sometimes I can forget to go back to the old favourites. It had been a while since I’d sat down for a meal at bloomer’s and as soon as I did, I instantly regretted not coming by every week!
I’m glad I was there with three others (two of them not veg!) so we could share a couple of appetizers, because the selection was too much to bare. I knew from the past how good the kimchi fries were, but we settled on the tempeh wings which were so perfectly battered and fried, crispy but not overly greasy, and the avocado wedges which were crunchy while also being bright and fresh, thanks to the lime juice in the pico de gallo it came with.
For my main I had the biscuits and gravy, which were perfect and hearty for the day of Toronto’s first major snowstorm.
But the real treat was the end of the meal: my partner and I shared two donuts that I afterward claimed were the best vegan donuts in the city. They’re huge! They’re fluffy! And there were so many unique flavours to choose from. It was holiday time so we got to enjoy a candy cane special and also delighted in a giant boston cream which was very generous with the filling.
Don’t forget they also have a new location on Queen Street West! It’s smaller than the Bloor location so doesn’t serve up the full lunch and brunch menu, but you can still get your fill of their amazing baked goods!
