One of the best bakery/confectionary shops I can ever remember visiting. It reminds me of the kind of place that was common when I was a child but is hard to find now.

Love this place for kawartha ice cream! Lots of flavors to choose from. Also love the waffle bowls they make fresh each day. There are a few tables and chairs outside to enjoy your treats while you people watch or there are 2 picnic benches...More

Delicious drinks and cakes. The cookies and chocolates are mixed in quality (the shortbread is very dry and flavourless). The service is very very friendly but extremely slow.

Arrogant woman (likely the owner) seemed like the few people in the store were bothering her from basking in the sun outside. She had her hair down and wore sunglasses on her head while serving - and seemed like she was in no rush to...More

The good news is that they have Kawartha Dairy ice cream. The bad news is that they have the worst service I have ever seen. Tonight, there was a long line to buy ice cream, so I walked inside to see what was happening. There...More

Part of the charm of this place is being in downtown Unionville, where you can include a stroll down the narrow Main Street with charming shops and bars and restaurants. The firehall itself has a variety of desserts and treats to indulge - from ice...More
