Hansen’s Danish Pastry Shop is a family-owned and -operated bakery that has been serving the people of East York for over 50 years. They have an amazing selection of sweet treats for such a small store. (Click on any photo to see a larger version.)
The store is always decorated to suit the season. Here is a fabulous gingerbread house from the Christmas season:
In advance of St. Patrick’s Day, the store and products have an Irish theme:
Cookies of all shapes and sizes:
The front window is always a treat for the eyes. Multiple kinds of strudel, cupcakes, classic Danish pastry and Chelsea buns are just a few of the offerings.
Sweet treats are not all that Hansen’s has to offer. They have a selection of imported items from Denmark and Scandinavia including herring, Läkerol from Sweden (my favourite candy), plus deli sandwiches and quiche.
Everything here is so amazing and picture perfect!
