I have been visiting this local gem for a few years and realized that I have never reviewed how wonderful it is! The best is the chicken and or meat pies and perhaps the homemade fruit filled pies but honestly everything they make is delicious, homemade and made with local fruits vegetables and fresh herbs. I love getting away from... More

Located in a charming older building with the option to sit on the front porch or inside, this place is a must for anyone visiting Niagara-In-The-Lake. The strawberry and rhubarb pie is to die for.

My husband found this unpretentious place on Yelp as we planned to travel to the Niagara on the Lake area. The restaurant really is on older home and the bakery is the garage in the backyard. Lots of character and the aroma as you walk toward the restaurant is overwhelming. We were very hungry and shared a salad which had... More

Based on the good reviews here, we stopped in to check it out. You would never notice it if you weren't intentionally looking for it. The food was very good. The atmosphere was interesting, very clean but deliberately grungy. You will have to stop in to see what I mean. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I was... More

Down to earth, friendly, locally sourced, delicious, excellent baking. There are many (awful) bakeries in Niagara - this is not one of them. Fairly small; parking is cramped. Worth any hassle - the best food and value in the area.

Yes. Lot's of ink and piercings (on both sides of the counter), an ironic Star Wars (Episode IV!) T-shirt on the fifty-year-old guy, and a BAR in the middle of the bakery! Based on the homey sign and exterior, not what you'd expect. At all. Nice pork taco, best fish taco ever (blackened. Yay!), and an excellent pear and brie... More

You've heard the saying, "Life is short, eat dessert first." Well, this restaurant is the reason. If you don't EAT dessert first, at least ORDER it first, as the mouth-watering pie you're imagining for dessert may very well be purchased by the time you finish your meal. Consider yourselves warned. Based on the excellent reviews, we stopped by here for... More

Our waitress from dinner the night before recommended this place to us. It's a little confusing when you arrive. They are baking in a small building out back do we were unsure where to go. A rather unfriendly employee said, "go around front." Inside there is no visible menu or sign to say if you seat yourself. Made us feel... More

If I had to talk I wouldn't be able to because my mouth would be full of the amazingly, delicious pies, desserts and pizza! Remember to order any special preference of pie in advance and they will cook it up and hold it for you. If not you will be disappointed since they sell out early at times. Love love... More

My mouth waters just thinking of this restaurant. It's actually a bakery with a restaurant, so the fresh bread and baked desserts are oh-so-good. Four of us enjoyed a lovely lunch, some had quiche, sandwiches, and salads. Everything was excellent. Ingredients were fresh and tasty, the menu selection was good, I wanted to try several things on it. They serve... More
