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:November_28_DanishPastryShop_4_2012-11-28_12-02-10_DSC_8171

In advance of St. Patrick’s Day, the store and products have an Irish theme:Mar_6_HansensDanishPastry_17_2014-03-06_11-55-54_DSC_1428

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.Mar_6_HansensDanishPastry_7_2014-03-06_11-53-04_DSC_1418Mar_6_HansensDanishPastry_16_2014-03-06_11-55-37_DSC_1427Mar_6_HansensDanishPastry_8_2014-03-06_11-53-07_DSC_1419

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!Mar_6_HansensDanishPastry_10_2014-03-06_11-54-15_DSC_1421
