Read our reviews here to see why people would vote us "Best of the City" then come into the shop in the south end (in Southgate Shopping Centre) and TASTE for yourself. We're pretty sure you won't be disappointed! Our Nanaimo bars are regularly shipped by customers to New York, sausage rolls have been sent to Britain, Parisians claim our croissants are the best they've had outside Paris, locals think our sourdough bread is amazing, we've been featured on Food Network... We must be doing something right! Come in, give us a try and see for yourself.
