“Definitely stop in!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

A local gem! Tried most of the breads, all very good. The best item is the cinnamon bun. One of the best I've ever had. Light, not too sweet. Granola is very nice too. I agree too that coffee and outdoor seating would be great.

“Best Chocolate Croissant ever!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Very nice little bakery, not a restaurant. Everything looked amazing. It was hard to decide what to get. Tried the chocolate croissant and got a loaf of herbed cheese bread for later. Both were fantastic!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

A local bakery specializing in artisan breads using local "ish" ingredients baked daily. We tried the croissants a couple of times and found them a welcome alternative to store-bought breads as well as the chocolate croissant (a croissant filled with chocolate paste/spread). Overall the good were good although I'm not sure we would rave about them. They have large stocks of organic artisan breads as well as cookies, muffins, cinnamon buns (we tried them as well - okay but not the best we have ever had) and a limited number of specialty items like brownies, Nanaimo bars and even pavlova. We had no complaints with the food or service (most goods are left out in the small store for a self-serve approach) but am not sure we would gush the way others have. We love small bakeries and this is good - especially for Osoyoos. We will return on our next visit. Just not sure it is the first spot we will hit. As others have said, there is no seating area nor do they serve coffee, etc. It is a bakery, not a cafe/restaurant.

“Artisan baked goods in Osoyoos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Not sure why this is rated under "restaurants" as it is a retail outlet/bakery but it is fantastic and certainly one of the best places to buy food in Osoyoos. They have raised the benchmark very high as the only other bread you can get is week old stale bread in the supermarkets. All bred is made in the sourdough style using locally grown and milled flour, there is a dessert and cheese case from local farms and the butter tarts are to die for. I was disappointed to learn that the locals balked at the price of a loaf of bread of this quality so the owners had to lower the price, it's worth every penny as far as I am concerned.

“Stop here every time! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Must be early! Get the good fresh from the oven and beat the am rush! These treats are unbeatable! Tourists and locals alike indulge in these fresh baked goods! I'm being vague about the goods themselves because they're all good! No need for specifics here!
