Bought a full apple pie today and I have to say VERY disappointed. I have bought other pies from here and they were all excellent. When I make my apple pies I use crisp fruit, the pie I bought here was more like overripe mush so it was more like they poured apple sauce into a pie shell. Even more... More

The folk cookies and cinnamon buns are the best!! The veggie sandwich with hummus is also very good. Have not tried anything else - stick with my favorites as I don't get there very often.

Friends took us here for coffee and buns. Their cinnamon buns were so good we had to go back for seconds. Lots of interesting bakery goods available. Very busy which is always a good sign.

I also had a cheese filled thing that was awesome, can't remember what it was called. Being from the U.S. I had never heard of bannock, it looked like a scone with blackberry jam but I wasn't sure so I asked the cashier, "What is a bannock?" With a shrug of her shoulders she replied, "It's...a bannock." Luckily an older,... More

You just HAVE to buy their cinnamon buns once you get a whiff of them as they take them out of the oven. When you bite into one, you can understand why there are lineups for them. Delicious!

Today we enjoyed coffee and pastries at Tall Grass Prarie's Forks location. The whole wheat cinnamon bun (hot and fresh) did not disappoint.

They have really good cinnamon buns, scones and croissants. It's also in a nice venue - - the Forks Market building, at the very popular site, The Forks, at the junction of Winnipeg's two rivers. They also grow organically the grains they use and mill it right on site. They also press their own sunflower oils from their seeds right... More

This place is an absolute "must" for any foodie! I have had some pretty lousy cheese sticks over the years but this place delivers fantastic freshness and awesome chewy bite. Whoa! We also absolutely enjoyed the the cinnamon bun, the empire cookie and last but not least their tea. Even honey is available for those who enjoy their tea with... More

There are all kinds of baked goods and breads to choose from. The thing I love best is how this bakery incorporates local, seasonal ingredients. For example, you can often find fresh saskatoons, rhubard, or blueberries put into their pies, muffins, or scones. That's pretty special because a lot of people don't even know where to find saskatoons when they... More

I Drive all the way across the city and buy these buns, they are the best. If you have not tried one yet, it is ridiculous that you haven't....Get there now. They have all kinds of fresh organic bread and muffins, etc. This place is magnificent. I am here multiple times a month>
