“A pie in the sky...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2012

We have been fans of Hidden Gold Mine for years. With its recent move to main street Madoc, it is less hidden, and judging from the crowds on the past few Saturdays, more discovered. Now it is a genuine cafe, nicely dressed up with antiques and historical curios that tell the history of the building and Madoc, All of the baking is excellent, but I want to especially rave about the pies.
It started with the blueberry pie, made with wild blueberries, "from scratch", as with all their baking. I think it as good as my Mom's, which till now has been unrivaled, made with wild blueberries we picked when I was growing up in Newfoundland. We took one to a family event, and now we are expected to take one when we get together. Except recently, all the blueberry pies had been sold. So we chose a cherry pie. Now that has become a "family-accreditied " pie whose repeat appearance has been invited. Except at Thanksgiving, there were no blueberry or cherry pies left, so we took an apple pie - again, fabulous, and now we have three approved options that we are encouraged to bring to the table for family celebrations.
If you had remained a local secret, Hidden Goldmine, I would still be eating your blueberry pies. Now that the word is getting out, I have discovered that just about anything you make will draw praise from guests, and keep my own palette sated.

“Home baked goods (used to be literal)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

Last year, Hidden Goldmine operated a small shop from a room in their house. So, they were literally Home Baked Goods. Yum!!!

They recently opened a store in downtown Madoc. The place is done up nicely with a cozy, country style.

The food is still incredible. You must anticipate gaining a pound or two as you pass through.

For example, I bought a Peach Pie and it only had 7 ingredients. Peach, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, flour and lard. Lard Baby!!! It's natural, delicious and impossible to resist.

Important to note they are only open weekends.
