NO PROCESSED INGREDIENTS OR CHEMICAL PRESERVATIVES
We source our ingredients as organically as possible - meaning less chemical intervention, such as pesticides or added preservatives. As this might shorten the lifespan of our daily freshly baked goods, it also ensures a higher quality, and healthier, product. At the end of the day, it won't matter that our cinnamon buns might only last a few days - they'll be enjoyed long before that anyways!
As we source locally, we ensure the best of the best local produce - straight from our friends at Eborall Farms, the Hamilton Farmer's Market, + more! Check out on page on LOCAL to learn about our sourcing.

Vanilla is in almost all our recipes and we only use real vanilla and/or real vanilla paste. It may be quite pricey at this time for real vanilla, but we believe you can taste the difference!
We believe a small business should be about creating meaningful employment, creating a space that allows for creativity and creating an awesome team within a dynamic atmosphere.
