Quaint little Bakery in the Old town of Kemptville. Worth visiting, They sell amazing pies and desserts. Always something interesting here. The Maple Bacon Butter Tarts are out of this world. They have a great pecan pie and at Christmas they offered gluten free fruit balls that were like really good rum balls. They have lovely Bakewells (English Raspberry tarts).... More

Excellent bakery in an unassuming building downtown Kemptville. Housing one of the oldest wood ovens in Canada, turning out family favorites; buns, loaves and specialty items daily. A must.

You cannot miss this place. If you come to Kemptville it's a must stop. They have a variety of incredible dress breads, croissant, pastries, meat pies and home made condiments. They also offer a frequent "buyer" card. Enjoy.

A great place to stop for lunch. Relaxing and welcoming. Warm and comforting soups and sandwiches. Excellent vegetarian food choices. Artisan cheeses and chorizo of great quality. Yum! Dangerously delicious fresh cut chips-yum!

This is our second visit, the first having been almost a year ago (!!!), time sure flies. We were very happy to discover they have extended their "Free Soup Fridays", with the purchase of a sandwich. We both opted for a Wilton sandwich, consisting of smoked pork belly, aged Wilton cheddar, apple chutney, red onion and Dijon on a ploughman's... More

This very unassuming bakery has good eats and great bread well beyond its modest, wood and screen door exterior. If you're looking for a lunch in Kemptville, this is the place to go.

Worst customer service I have EVER experienced. The bakery items are amazing but every single time I go, either to the shop or farmers market, I walk away uncomfortable and upset. I've interacted with multiple staff members and not a single one has any personality or is remotely welcoming, and it's like they go out of their way to be... More
