You get a warm welcome when you walk into Grandpa Jimmy's. They are a small, family owned bakery and they appreciate your business. Their baked goods are all made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Delicious pastries, cookies, bread, meat pies - mmm, all excellent! Fair trade coffee at great prices too. Don't bother with Tim Hortons across the road, Grandpa Jimmy's will take great care of you.

Very good homemade meat pies and lots of yummy sweets too! I always stop here on my way home from camping at the Pinery.

My family and I do a reunion every year at different Provincial Parks in Ontario. This year we chose the Pinery, near Grand Bend. After a weekend camping, we didn't want to take out the camping gear and prepare breakfast, so we though; why not stop at Timmies on the way home. En route to Timmies, we saw Grandpa Jimmy's Scottish Bakery, and what a delight that was. First of all, the food is inexpensive and tasty. We ordered some Scottish pies, and ate at their dining area. It's a very informal place - which was great, because we were not in the most formal attire coming from the Pinery. They don't just sell pies, they also sell buns, cakes, rolls, cookies and some Scottish memorabilia. My mom bought a towel that looks like a kilt when you wear it around your waist.... That probably gives you more insight into my mother than to Grandpa Jimmy's... anyway...

I highly recommend this place to any passerbyers or locals to Grand Bend. You'll be satisfied.

Bon appetite!

After reading all the reviews about Grandpa Jimmy, we promised ourselves to make a stop on our trip to Grand Bend. And we're sure glad we did! We had a fairly rushed schedule and managed to sneak through the doors 10 minutes before closing. The staff were friendly and assisted us with a great smile.

We tried the cornish, sausage roll, maple tart, and shortbread fingers. I especially liked the maple tart - it had a very nice and genuine maple flavour, but not overly sweet. The pastry, oh the pastry, they were simply divine. The shortbread fingers were absolutely delicious, and literally melted in your mouth.

I can't wait to go back!
