“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We visited the Crusty Baker on our way from Ottawa to Toronto. It is a cute European style bakery/cafe. We had soup, crepe and cookies. The soup came in a casserole and was served with white and brown bread slices. Portions were very generous. Everything was very delicious and the prices were very reasonable. It was worth to a trip. We will go there again.

“Amazing Breads”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Some of the best tasting breads I have ever ate! Cannot say enough good things about this bakery. I recently moved to Kemptville and before that I would drive 30 minutes from Ottawa to buy the hot pepper loaf on weekends. I wish the croissants would be made daily, but when they are available they are delicious.

“Wonderful crepes and soups”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This is a fairly new restaurant located in downtown Kemptville. I have eaten at the Crusty Baker about 5 times. They offer savory and sweet crepes, sandwiches on their wonderful, made in the store, bread as well as very tasty soups. The soups are quite large and come with two generous pieces of their crusty breads. The sandwiches are also on their crusty bread. The crepes are wonderful and made well you watch.

My only issue with the place is that it is not air conditioned, so it can get quite warm on hot day.

“okay.”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

It was okay. It's bread. no pastries or donuts or cakes, this is not a bakery. it's a bread shop and creperie.
