Absolutely the best bakery I have ever been at - from brownies to meat pies, from chocolate dipped shortbread cookies to raisin bread. If you are going to Grand Bend, stop in, you will love it.

I didn't have a meal here, but went instead to pick up some pastries, of which they have multiple varieties. The Dundee cake, balmoral tarts and empire cookies are ALL delicious. Definitely worth the drive.

A great place to stop for scones for breakfast or lunch. Always fresh and usually gone by noon. Try the shortbread cookies as well.

We loved this stop in Grand Bend! Warm, out-of-the-oven tarts for me, meat pie for my husband, and not-too-sweet shortbread for the long kids. Everything was tasty & fresh.

Popped in on Friday afternoon and was delighted to find fresh cheese bread!! The bread was in fact so fresh we were doubtful it could be put through the slicer. With the staff's expertise: success! Absolutely delicious. Would also recommend any of their sausage rolls,...More
