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. 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:
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.
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.
