Eric’s baguettes, croissants, pastries and quiches are the best I have had outside of France. In the Before Times, we took his Gateau Basque to several dinner parties and they were always a hit!

Stopped into Eric the Baker today and got some of their brownies, and a slice of ham and onion quiche. Oh my goodness are they ever phenomenal. The rich cocoa flavour in the brownie is simply decadent. He uses the very best of ingredients and...it shows. Keep up the good work!!! We will keep coming back.More

I have been here many times and have never argued the quality of the food. I am no longer sure I justify the price increases...especially when it is a cash only business. I have supported local through COVID but feel the love should go both...ways. Stop gouging the people who made you a hit in Guelph.More
