Unique in the city! Carousel Bakery is known as the home of the award-winning "World Famous Peameal Bacon Sandwich." The fabulous sandwich has been often imitated but never duplicated by many competitors.
Carousel Bakery has been at the same location in the St. Lawrence Market for over 30 years. There are line ups at the counter every weekend as well as weekday lunch hours for this Toronto tradition. Even Celebrity Chefs Emeril Lagasse and Bobby Flay have returned for seconds!
