Cake & Pastry
Step over the threshold into our world of sweet treats and you will encounter a display of pastries that are a delight for the eyes as well as a taste sensation. Every time you enter the bakery, a different aroma might entice you to try something new. Buttery notes of a croissant, the rich swell of dark chocolate, the delicate balance of honey and almond and the floral explosion of fruity raspberries as they turn into jam waft into the front of the store to awaken your taste buds.
Our talented pastry chefs and their assistants have worked over the years to fill our pastry cases with exciting products. Our range has evolved from our iconic brownies and carrot cakes to include the likes of tarte citron, pear almond tart, hazelnut mignon, tiramisu, honey cake, eclairs... to name a few. Our current pastry chefs and their team come from five different countries and have found their rhythm in widely varied places: honing their skills in luxury hotels or simply in their grandmothers’ kitchens.
The skill of our pastry chefs is matched with ingredients that we source for their sustainability as well as their quality. Amerena cherries from Italy grace our Black Forest cake, organic raspberries for our raspberry almond strudel come from Shady Lane berry farm, right here in Alberta. There are no shortcuts when it comes to producing beautiful and delicious cakes, pastries and cookies. We juice fresh lemons, ground almonds into fine flour, turn fresh berries into sumptuous fillings for our pies. Each and every product that makes its way to our showcase, has been tweaked and fine tuned until we are proud to call them our own creation.
A Bon Ton cake, pastry, pie, tart or cookie is something special, whether it’s for a milestone celebration or a treat for the drive home. Our delicacies are carefully selected and skillfully crafted to create that perfect bite.
