For the love of coffee: A look at Cake and Loaf Bakery

During my last break on Tuesday afternoon, I decided to venture to the Hamilton Farmer’s Market to escape the reality of work. I had the urge to try something sweet today and headed out to Cake and Loaf Bakery.


I absolutely love Cake and Loaf! With a wide variety of cookies, pastries and breads, Cake and Loaf does not disappoint. They are well known for their baked goods and all their items are made from local ingredients. Their Dundurn location also serves lunch from my understanding. My personal favourites are the Skor cookies and the maple peacan tart. I also love the emphasis of being locally made. In a way, you sense some sort of pride in their craftsmanship. I also love how there are two locations- one in the market and the other at their home base at 321 Dundurn.

I wasn’t originally going to buy a coffee there but Cafe au Lait was on the menu and it caught my eye.

Cafe au lait is basically coffee with warmed milk. This drink is very popular in Europe. In Croatia it’s known as “bijela kava,” which for me is a personal old time favourite drink.

If you are looking for some freshly baked goods and a good ol’ cafe au lait, look no further than to Cake and Loaf Bakery!
