New bakery does caesar scones
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.
Nutella (left) and caesar (right) scones. The cocktail-flavoured number is made with Worcestershire sauce, horseradish and celery seeds, then drizzled with a Clamato glaze. $3.20 each.
Pão de queijo: traditional, gluten-free Brazilian cheese puffs made with tapioca starch imported from Brazil. $4 for a box of four.
Other gluten-free goods include flourless chocolate, walnut and salted-caramel brownies ($4) and brigadeiros, a Brazilian dessert made with chocolate and condensed milk ($2).
Vegan coconut oat cookies. $3.50 each.
Current savoury items include pizza ($6.50), salads ($9.50) and soup ($5.50).
S’mores tea latte: Canadian maple Rooibos tea, steamed milk, chocolate and marshmallows. $4.60.
