The idea of having an authentic French baker in Guelph sounds nice, but the truth of the matter is that there is nothing 'nice' about Eric the baker. I had heard the stories about him treating his staff poorly, swearing, berating, and making them feel...More

Excellent little bakery! Right across from City Hall. Grab something and go skating afterwards. Guelph has such a pretty downtown with great vendors!😀

For tender, crumbling, buttery croissants, go to Eric's place - if you can squeeze in. Today we had cranberry and rum and raisin croissants, saving the chocolate and plain for breakfast treats. You can also get great salads (try the bean and olive one- yummy).

I personally have not been yet! I just had sausage rolls from this place at a potluck dinner I attended! They were fantastic and so large! I will definitely be going to try this place out very soon!

Eric the baker is a hidden gem in guelphs downtown, it offers a fantastic atmosphere for business or pleasure! I highly recommend it

Not kidding here. Eric has obviously cut his teeth on making pastry. You'll never have any croissant (or sausage roll, danish etc...) this side of Paris. Go!

We go here often because the baked goods are absolutely delicious, whether it be croissants, tarts or cakes. The lemon tart is absolutely delicious, as are the éclairs. The only problem is trying to decide what to have!
