If the thought of school food conjures images of mushy peas, soggy fish
sticks and semolina pudding, then you haven’t tried School
Bakery & Cafe.
As you dive into a mini tower of springy pancakes ($9) loaded with
blueberries, cream and syrup, memories of stodgy cafeteria grub will
quickly disappear. Other offerings include the ultra-dacadent peanut
butter and chocolate waffle sandwich ($11), super cheesy french toast
($10) and poached eggs on a cheddar chive biscuit ($10).
Schoolroom props (books, alphabet blocks, chalkboards) sweep you back to
class. A giant chalkboard in the washroom reminds you to ‘brush up on
your English Literature at the bar.’
Nestled in the bustling Liberty Village neighbourhood, this is one cool
place to play hookie.
