“OMG! The Best!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We've been here a few times when we head to Algonquin Park (you go right past it on the way north on Highway 60). This bakery has the best baked goods I've ever had. Brownies, tarts, pies, danishes, turnovers...you name it, they're the best! We have never gone past this place without stopping. And yes, usually there's a HUGE line...but that's only because it's so good. They move pretty fast so the wait isn't too long. Definitely worth it!

“Not Sure I Want to Be Truthful ...”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

... BUT... When it comes to small bakeries, Henrietta's is the best. Line ups are already way out the door before opening on summer Saturday mornings as Lake of Bays cottagers stock up on sticky buns, butter tarts, pizza buns, brownies and meat pies for the weekend. The management isnt always happy about the crowds either (dont blame them .. They want to be sipping coffee on the dock too.)
So ... Shhhh .. Don't tell anyone about Henrietta's. If you do go, order in advance for Morning availability. Our faves: lemon meringue tarts ordered by the dozen and Henrietta's raspberry jam.

“Best Bakery Ever”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

Henrietta's Pine Bakery is in a log cabin on highway 60 in Dwight. Whenever I'm anywhere near Muskoka or Algonquin, I make sure to do the trek out to Henrietta's - even if it's an hour out of my way.

In the summertime there are long line-ups, but it's worth the wait. Their pies and tarts are unbelievable, especially cherry and pumpkin pies (and I'm usually not a pumpkin pie person). Their sticky buns are the best I've ever had, and their meat pies and breads are also worth trying.

It's easy to miss Henrietta's if you don't know about it, but given the huge following, it's surprising to me that I'm the first to review it. You must try this bakery!
