My Fav Restaurant In Toronto?

So I have lived here for most of my life, with a couple years spent in each Vancouver and Israel. I know this city and (hopefully) this city knows me. My favourite restaurant is called United Bakers and it is located at the corner of Bathurst and Lawrence. I have been coming here since I was a baby, noshing on their delicious latkas, bagels and gefilte fish.

The bakery is on the left. Make sure that you wait for serving, instead of seating yourselves! The food is amazing here!

The food has changed a bit over the years but not much. It has been open for over a hundred years. In fact, they used to have a location up in Thornhill, closing something around Y2K. You will find all of the dishes that your bubby made when you were a child, even the catering that she brought to weddings, shivas and so forth.

This is a copy of their most recent menu. I usually get the cabbage rolls, plus a side of gefilte fish. They say that the sweet comes from Poland while the pepper-flavoured comes from Russia. I do not know which is which but I enjoy their both with charain.
This is the bakery that I was talking about above. You can get food to bring home. Their split pea soup is a fan favourite about my crew! Try it with a twister. Can you finish the whole thing?
In 1912, a young couple from Kielce opened a bakery/coffee shop in downtown Toronto. Their plan was simple: to recapture the flavours of the life they had left behind in Poland, and to make a living here in Canada. They rented a storefront at 156 Agnes Street in what was then the heart of Jewish life, an area known as the Ward, and hung out a sign that read “5 cent Coffee House”. They called their new business THE UNITED BAKERS.
