I stopped in to City Store Grocery today to check out the wares. Located on Dundas west of Ossington, next to Opera Bob’s, it’s a big space with lots of canned and boxed goods, a small cooler of beverages, and a small selection of fruits and vegetables. Yes, they do have tomatoes.
While not very different from the other markets on Dundas near Ossington, one thing that sets it apart is the selection of Clafouti croissants for $1.99. Yes, Clafouti croissants. And they had a few left at 11:15 on a Saturday. They even sell the fig!
Also open is Crepes and More, at 164 Ossington. The”More” part of the name is no joke! They serve soup, pasta, assorted sandwiches and baked goods too. Someone commented that they found the prices expensive, but the crepes start at $5.95 which seems reasonable to me.
There are seats in the cafe to eat in, or you can take-out. Daylight hours only.
