Detour is in the right city. Hipster central and also money to spend. The coffee is great and so are the baked goods but extremely overpriced. I favour Grupetto across the street for their coffee but detour is good.

We are in Dundas weekly and always stop into Detour for their fresh bread. We have also had their coffee and their lunches. The food, bread, coffee is always excellent. The breads and baked goods are very limited in quantity and run out very quickly...More

Had lunch there this past week. Food was good. Grilled cheese and a brisket sandwich. Salad was not a memorable green but fresh. Self serve in placing your order. Numbers given. A lot like Williams Coffee Shop idea. Self serve even your own water.
