You'll find some really good baked foods here. Great to stop in and go. I love their scones and meat pies.

“Best Eccles cakes anywhere”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

try to stop here when you visit Grand Bend this summer. All desserts are excellent. Eccles cakes however are the best around....oh and Fern tarts, so if you are looking for something a bit different as a treat, definitely stop here

“Awesome Brownies”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Love the brownies here. Not a fan of the tarts. Tim Horton's is always busy and slow. Try this place instead!

Great service and comfortable atmosphere. The coffee always seems to taste better when you can smell fresh bread baking.
