Also called Little Tub bakery. We picked tarts and chocolate danish from here for sweets. Delicious and tasty, definitely worth stopping for.

Reviews were good, lots of people coming and going so we gave it a try, Just had a butter-tart okay nothing too special and both were burnt on top mine was a bit too black for my liking not too sure why you would serve...something like that. I think who ever was serving for the day was not having a great day not a very plesent personMore

We had some delicious butter tarts, chocolate pastries and brownies from here. The sandwich was average, but the other treats were exceptional.

We popped in for a couple of coffees and whatever pastries looked good. There were too many tempting things on the menu that we wanted and could have easily ate a day's worth of calories here for breakfast! We chose a Boston cream, Apple fritter,...Cinnamon Bun and a 6-pack of their famous butter tarts! Everything was delicious and the butter tarts didn't last long when we brought them home for the family to enjoy! Our cinnamon bun was piping hot out of the oven as we arrived pretty much when then opened and were the only Customers. COVID19 protocols in effect so they cut a little section of their screen door to pass goodies through for us to enjoy. Too bad we only discovered this place on our last day in Tobermory. We'll be back for sure to try the squares and fruit pastries and their pizza!More

Had an egg sandwich, Spinach feta pastry , and chocolate pastry. Egg Sandwich wasn't for me just due to the tomato spread they had on it. But the two other pastries were good! Also the brownie cookies looked delicious but didnt try.

Try the chocolate croissants! We stopped after morning hike at the Grotto. Got a butter tart for me and a chocolate croissant fro my husband. While both were delicious, the butter croissant was memorable. :)

We bought food from here several times while in Tobermory. They make great sandwiches - we took them on our excursion to Flowepot Island. The butter tarts are out of this world and the apple fritters are to die for.

It was quite Sunday afternoon so there wasn't much left but fortunately the apple fritters were still available along with some cookies. Very tasty! Also had a coffee and sat outside to enjoy the afternoon. Service was friendly and cost was not an issue.

Great! Wonderful taste experience. Little Tub has the best baked goods on the Peninsula. Wonderful delightful decadent treats. Nothing better than sitting on the dock with a Tea and a Butter Tart to start the day.

We preordered pizza, which I do recommend if possible. It was delicious. Bakery treats were great too, and they serve coffee tea and ice cream. They have picnic tables outside. No indoor seating though. A lovely little spot for lunch or just snacks.
