Truscott Italian Bakery and Deli


2425 Truscott Dr, Mississauga ON

I'm sure you will agree, there's nothing quite like freshly baked bread; the smell, the taste, the warmth, it's all so very good! 

I definitely heart bakeries. When I was growing up there was a lovely little bakery called Hot n' Crusty where the breads were baked fresh every morning; it was always such a treat to go there.

Recently we discovered Truscott Italian Bakery & Deli - a quaint little bakery right in the middle of a parking lot on the border of Oakville/Mississauga. It's been there only eight years yet it appears as though the parking lot was built around it.

I imagine though, that the past eight years have been enormously successful judging from the steady stream of customers at 8 in the morning! 

The cappuccino on the patio sounded like a great idea!

The breads! Rows of crusty, floured, multigrained loaves.  I wanted to try them all...and in due time I will, but to begin....we got some fresh buns, croissants, and this:

Spacatelli....which I've never had before, but which was undeniably fresh (and still warm!!!).

The trays of muffins, pies, cookies and pastries were astounding!


I've yet to try their hot-table items, but I got their mini cakes/tarts for a tea party recently and they not only looked pretty they were pretty delectable, too.

Then there's their deli meat counter which boasts a variety of European meats, the huge selection of pastas (I recently purchased some corn pasta [gluten free] and added to it the all natural Mediterranean Garden's "fiery hot arrabiata" pasta sauce, which was fantastic), fancy imported drinks (lemonades and juices), farmed fresh eggs, and of course a massive collection of olives and olive oils!  Heaven!

With our morning breakfast made complete with the addition of a divine "elephant ear" - stuffed full of chocolate - we were ready to start the weekend!

I'm sure many start their weekends this way and I for one can't wait to do it again!

I love bakeries too, but I've never seen a place like this with so much variety and all fresh! That's great you found this place, it's probably worth taking a trip to go there from North York!

Great review - this is my favorite bakery! The staff are friendly, their baked goods are incredible and very reasonably priced and they also have a good selection of cheese - great pics - looking at your breakfast makes me crave an elephant ear and coffee right now!

Thanks for your comment FAB! It's the perfect Saturday morning bakery!

I live down the road from this bakery and only recently did I start going in. I always assumed that it would be too expensive but I was really surprised at how reasonable their prices are - on most items it's the same as the grocery store or on special it's even less - and the bonus is that it's fresh daily.

Hey Dee, thanks for your comment. I know, it's completely reasonable...they also have an amazing home-made pasta sauce which I can't recall right at the moment but will post about sometime.
