Hopgood’s is one of my all-time favourite Toronto restaurants. The seafood is excellent and the menu changes often. But I really love it for the nostalgia factor — molasses bread just like Nan used to make, and ‘Halifax’ donairs that evoke the Maritime fast food while being much, much better. I’m sure their desserts are also great, but I can’t tell you, because I always get the homemade crispy toffee chocolate bar. So great.
