Ok folks this bakery has it all. Fantastic staff, amazing baked goods, and Nutella Latte...that's right, Nutella Latte! Happy days!!!! The fresh baked cookies, brownies, scones, cinnamon bun with cream cheese icing and their breads are all outstanding. Can't wait to have this bakery cater my next function. Highly recommend!!!

The food is great quality and they purchase from local suppliers. I've never had anything that I didn't love!

I heard about the Cake and Loaf via my daughter who lives in Hamilton. I was here for a visit and We picked up a little lunch. It was super yummy! We had a lunch tray, a pastry each and drinks; there was something for everyone! Savoury and sweet, all was good,,including espresso/Americano and delicious cold brewed iced coffee.

This bakery has a great assortment of items. They make desserts, sandwiches to go and pot pies among other things. I am absolutely in love with the coconut curry quinoa pot pie. I'm normally not a crust person, but I can't get enough of the crust on their pot pies. I also love the macaroons. They only make them Friday... More

Cake & Loaf is a great little bakery around Locke that offers great muffins, and cheese beer bread (ok who wouldn't love that!) The staff is wonderful and its a great place to pick up a breakfast or treats for the house.

we have purchased several birthday/celebration cakes from Cake and Loaf. While the prices might be a bit higher that other bakeries, it is worth the difference. The cakes are a wonderful dense texture, not too sweet and they satisfy your sweet tooth! They have a variety of other baked good and bread- Garlic loaf and cheese bread are our favourites.... More

I've been here a handful of times with the most recent being this past Easter. Their white chocolate blueberry scone was amazing, I bought them for breakfast for my family after a night shift. I also spent about 50$ on different cakes/pastries for my moms birthday back in January. Everything is absolutely delicious but pretty pricey if I'm honest. I... More

This is one of the best bakeries I've been to. They cater to a variety of different dietary needs and yet the food still tastes amazing (even the vegan ones). We bought a couple of cakes and savory pies. They were a hit at our party. They are easy and wonderful to work with. Would highly recommend.

We stopped here for coffee and baked treats. The staff are friendly and the coffee is quite good. The baked goods are excellent. My daughter had a mint hot chocolate which had way too much mint in it - almost undrinkable. Previously she had the same drink here and it was good. She would have taken it back although when...
