Anything but Ordinary
This bakery and deli offers a wide assortment of cheeses, breads, pates and cured meats that will tantalize the palate. Whether you want specialty olives or fair trade coffee beans you can find them all here. While many stop in to grab something for home, others take advantage of the take-away counter. The Epicure Shop offers freshly made breakfast sandwiches with organic eggs in the morning or gourmet sandwiches and salads for lunch.

A Cabbagetown Staple
A hidden gem in the community since 1980, The Epicure Shop has locals hooked. The small shop has a classic deli look, with long glass counters displaying pastries and 100 different types of cheeses and shelves showcasing jars of sauces and spreads. There is no indoor seating but in the summer customers can relax on one of the chairs placed right outside the tiny shop.

Something For You or Your Friends
Both ready-made and personalized gift baskets are available to surprise the foodie in your life. If you have a large group of friends you want to impress with some gourmet food, the shop offers catering. Cheese, vegetable and wrap sandwich platters are available for parties and meetings, as well as mouth-watering pastry trays. If you want something a little different, large pumpernickel bread bowls filled with home-made soups satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.
