Every so often, I require an amazing chocolate brownie. I have been hearing about the salted caramel brownies at Sweet Olenka's, a European-style artisan chocolate shop on the Lakeshore just west of Mimico. I went to this place, and found the perfect brownie.
The salted caramel brownie was my favourite, but the double-chocolate brownie, chocolate coconut cluster and other chocolate treats that found their way into my pastry box were also fantastic. So moist and rich, but not too cloyingly sweet.
Owner Olenka uses the highest quality all-natural ingredients to bake her brownies, truffles, chocolate bars and other goodies. She bakes several times a day and everything is so fresh. You can taste how pure everything is. There is also ice cream available, with a fun selection of sugar cones.
If you want to treat a chocolate-lover with something really special, drive to Sweet Olenka's in south Etobicoke and buy what is pictured below. Rosie :)
