The Best Babka in Toronto

The best babka in Toronto comes slathered with a rich chocolate or cinnamon filling and is braided into a loaf before baking. The resulting yeasted bread is nothing short of indulgent and makes for an excellent nibble alongside a weekend morning coffee.

This iconic Jewish sweet bread originated back in Eastern European countries in the 19th century. It is said that leftover scraps from baking challah were used to encase sweet jams and cinnamon fillings. Eventually, emigrants from Europe brought babka over to the United States, where it has only continued to grow in popularity.

Whether you're a die-hard chocolate fan or stand-by cinnamon as the superior flavour, there are plenty of options to choose from in the city. Below is a list of the best babka in Toronto.

A newcomer to the Toronto food scene, this new Toronto pop-up bakes up challah, babka and bread. They're currently on a pause right now as they have been extremely busy since launching but an expansion is on the horizon.
