A new east-side bakery has taken the iconic Canadian cocktail and turned it into a (booze-free) scone. Sugar Loaf (named after Brazil’s Pão de Açúcar—both owners are Brazilian-born) in Riverside sells South-American specialities and non-traditional treats like guava croissants and piña colada bars. Savoury lunch items include house-made soup, salads in jars and pizza. The drink menu lists teas and lattes, and soon (pending the liquor license approval) mimosas and bellinis.
