Visiting friends in Owen Sound. Never would have gone here if my buddy didn’t bring me but I’m glad he did. Excellent bakery and the freshest most delicious pastries I have in a long time. Likely since I was last here a while back. Definitely...go here. It’s amazing!More

While the pastries may be good we did not try them. While our roast beef sandwich and egg sandwiches had an abundance of meat and egg the bread was very dry with no butter, margarine or mayonnaise. The white bread for the egg sandwich was...also VERY stale. $3.25 for a bottle of coke or root beer with no refills also is quite high. The day we were there service was quite slow. You should not have to wait 20 minutes for a sandwich. It appears to be a very popular spot for lunch although it my have been because it was the only restaurant open in Thornbury when we were there on a Monday. If you like rubbing elbows with your neighbour dining in is an alternative.More

B’fast at Thornbury Bakery is also very tasty, the it coffee is the Kicking Horse brand, very aromatic. But due to the large cup, it gets cold very fast. The sitting area is very crowded in the morning. If you choose to sit down for...b’fast or lunch, make sure you have a table first. Lots of baked goods to choose from, cookies look yummy, croissants look yummy, muffins look yummy. Another must visit place while in Thornbury,More

We needed a quick lunch and didn't want fast food so we came to the bakery. Enjoyed the soup and sausage roll. The person cooking the hot food should cook a whole order at once. People were all getting their food at different times making...it difficult to enjoy lunch "together ". Other than that good food and friendly staff.More

We stopped in one morning while travelling through the area. They had a wonderful selection of baked goods and frozen food items. They make breakfast and lunch too, with lot’s of seating. You can help yourself to a glass of water. We enjoyed our muffin...and scone and tea.More

This is a place I have come many times because of the gluten free options. Until recently I would have always given it a five star review. That’s why I made a point of taking my mother-in-law there for lunch one day last week. If...that had been my only experience of the restaurant ever, I would have given it a 2 star review. So I am compromising with a 4. What makes this cafe great in my opinion is the gluten free option. They even have a dedicated gf toaster for options with gf bread, Staff have always been attentive to food allergy requests, which makes it a place we return to regularly. Where the restaurant fell short in my last visit was that our order took exceptionally long to prepare. They also seemed to be short on some things like coleslaw, and substitutions were made without consultation. Consequently the presentation was lacking on one dish, accuracy of menu description was lacking on another, and a wasteful substitution was made for the other, I left feeling embarrassed that I had made a point of driving my mother in law over from Collingwood to try this great cafe we have loved so much in past. Nevertheless, since it has been excellent previously, I would certainly give it another try.More

We bought their delicious gf bread that our B and B had. Then we stayed for a quick bite. The soup was superb as well as the danishes. Lots of tables for seating inside and out.

Staff seemed overwhelmed and had little inventory. Never heard of a restaurant/bakery that runs out of white bread at lunch time. Food was not worth the price we paid. Reuben sandwich had hardly any meat on it and was supposed to have Swiss cheese but...had something different. My sandwich was also burnt and not very good. Will definitely not return.More

Great little cafe for coffee. We started wtih coffee and chocolate croissant , and ended up going back several times for take out breakfast sandwitches. BLT, on multigrain and toasted western on sourdough. Both were great. We went back the next day for more of...the same. Very friendly staff, and efficient service. Order, get a number, and then wait outside for your order to prevent too many people inside.More
