I’d like to tell you about a special little pastry and sandwich shop in my neighbourhood. ‘Osogood’ opened a couple of years ago by a lady who’s dream it was to have her own store. She sells some of the most delicious cookies you’ll ever taste. Varieties include cranberry granola concoctions (more wholesome than experimental tasting), along with traditional gingerbread, shortbread, and chocolate chip. They are all sold large or small ‘lollipop’ size (half the regular, and with a pop stick baked inside).

The smaller ones are for kids she tells me, “they can’t have too much sugar.” I go there to enjoy her food, and also her gentle presence.

The store is west of Ossington on College, in the terrain of Toronto that is yet to be completely yuppified (excluding the corner Starbucks that just opened at Dovercourt).

As are other unique urban gems, there is only one ‘Osogood’. The shop is tiny. It encompasses only her kitchen, the display case, a couple of containers of sweets and seating for two.
You should go in there. Stop in and have a smell. Don’t forget to try a cookie, she’s made them for you.

MMM...these cookies sound fantastic! As long as we're talking about desserts, Dutch Dreams near Bathurst and St Clair makes milkshakes in enormous containers - practically the size of a bucket! - with whipped cream and chunks of fruit on top. Incredible...
