The Village of Creemore does it again

It wasn’t too long ago that I paid a visit to a local bakery in Creemore, ON and was suitably impressed with their delectable desserts. What a welcome surprise to discover there’s now a second bakery stop in town: Creemore Kitchen. DSCF7863DSCF7854 Creemore Kitchen is primarily a restaurant but there’s a bakery/coffee shop off to the side which is open 11 AM – 2:30 PM, Thursday – Monday. Unfortunately I broke all the rules and showed up at 2:45 on a Saturday, but was still able to grab a sneak peek of the bakery thanks to the hospitality of co-owners Caesar & Sam: DSCF7859

And thank goodness, because after catching a glimpse of the little shop, I would have been mighty disappointed to have missed out.

Chai tea doughnut? You bet! Beautiful presentation. Lightly glazed and not too sweet, and the flavour was spot-on.

I’m told this loaf is a big seller. Didn’t try it this trip, but it’s on my list for next time.   DSCF7834

Scones. Yes, tried these little raisin royals as well. They were soft and rich with just a hint of sweet. For someone who grew up in a British home with scone-loving parents, these really hit the mark for me. Fantastic.

They also make their own ice cream in flavours I’ve not seen before, such as Carrot Cake & Rhubarb Crisp. Caesar tells me the sweet corn, which was a staple in his childhood, is a real crowd pleaser:

Of course there’s more to try: Chocolate cake and chocolate chip cookies the size of my head, among others. Hats off to Creemore on the expanding foodie atmosphere – let the good times roll.
