This used to be my place to stop in/out of cottage country weekly. It has since been replaced with bracebridge's Marty's.
their scones are great. Brownies delicious, and butter tarts great

Went to Don's Bakery on our vacation. It was Saturday and the place was packed. The service was excellent. The butter tarts are to die for! Bought scones, they were delicious. Will definitely make a return trip.

The scones are the best that Don's offers, and they are great. The butter tarts, blueberry and other types of tarts have been surpassed by other stores. The cookies were once great but now all taste the same - same dough and only different by the bits that are added - chocolate chips, butter scotch chips, etc. This place has been operating since about 1955, always called Don's but different owners as the years have passed. Try it. You might be more impressed than we are. We remember the old days when it was the only game in town.

Each summer we look forward to opening our cottage in fantastic Muskoka and part of the initiation of each year begins with scones from Don's Bakery in Bala, but once inside the bakery you end up buying so much more as all their baked goods are TO DIE FOR. Their Chelsea's and butter tarts are yummy and their donuts are HUGE, but if you don't get their before noon you may not get a chance to try them as they sell out. Last year we tried their KEY LIME pie for the first time. No need to go to Florida anymore as their's is as good. Keep up the great baking!!!!
