This place has limited opening hours and days, as we found out the hard way after showing up twice when it was closed. It is tucked out of the way and reached through a side road of highway 6, the main thoroughfare in the peninsula. Yet, our wait was well worth it. The baked goods are delicious Yet what really stands out is the possibility of sitting outside on a quaint porch and even nicer garden surrounded by walking paths lined by wildflowers, sculptures and installations. It is truly a unique place with the feel of a family business and an edgy vibe.

The organic, vegan and gluten free baked goods will certainly be a draw to a number of people seeking this kind of fair. However, this type of baking seems to always be on the dry side, so choices such as the cream type desserts or the fruit pies may prove to be the better choices. We tried the chocolate brownie but it was extremely dry. Tasty, but due to the dryness needed something like a moist icing for balance. The butter scones with the cranberries again had a good taste but was also quite dry. These, I would slice open, add butter and heat. The Cornish pasties looked interesting so we bought a couple of these as well, however, I prefer these heated so these will be tried later at home. Again, being vegan, these may not be to everyone's taste. We really wanted to try the pizza, but unfortunately this is only made on Sundays. Quality offerings but for a more limited clientele.

I really wanted to try this place, all the reviews are amazing, I promised my family to do that, then to my shock found out that they close @ 4:30 in a long weekend !!! who does that !!! Anyway I understand the lay back attitude but guys you can't close touristic attraction at 4:30 PM on a summer long weekend.

Driving south on Hwy 6 from Tobermory, we were looking for something to eat. We spied the sign on the west side of the road for the Harvest Moon Bakery (almost missed it, so keep a lookout for it). It's an out of the way bakery, organic and homey. The options were great and tasty. Staff is inviting and friendly. Cash only establishment.
There is a garden on site as well and we enjoyed walking around enjoying our bakery items. This is a place we'll always stop at when were up in the Tobermory area.

We had been to this bakery on a previous trip to Tobermory several years ago and were happy to find them open this past weekend (May 5/17).

The choices all looked so tempting and it was hard to decide, but we settled on a brownie, a sticky toffee pudding and a pasty. All so delicious. They also had pizza, pies, bread, organic coffee and more.

It looks like the gardens have expanded since our last visit there and we noticed a sign for a labrinth. It was a cold day, so we didn't linger, but there is more there than just the bakery.

Too bad (or maybe a good thing) they are almost 4 hours from where live, or we would be there more often.
