Although our main business is designing and crafting bespoke cakes for all special occasions, we wanted to create a way to provide delicious treats to our community! We didn’t want you to have to wait until you had a special occasion in order to taste our baked goods.
Please see our response to COVID-19 here.
Below you’ll find our most frequently asked questions related to our retail shop!
What are your hours?
Our retail shop is currently open on Thursdays and Fridays from 8am to 6pm and Saturdays from 8am to 3pm.
We now also have an online shop where you can place an order for pick up!
What do we offer?
Brownies, cookies, macarons, verrines, and cinnamon rolls are the staples of our shop. Flavours change week to week, so be sure to check out our menu posted on Instagram and Facebook on Thursdays for the weekend! Instructions for our bake-at-home cinnamon rolls can be found here.
Wait. What is a verrine?
A verrine is a dessert that is served in some sort of glass vessel. (Verre means glass in French.)
We use cute jars! You can take them home and enjoy your dessert. When you bring them back (clean*, please!) you’ll get $0.50 off your next purchase! So these verrines are good for you and the environment. Single use plastic? We don’t know her!
*Please note each jar is washed and sanitized by us after it’s returned. We just don’t want to deal with mouldy jars – yuck!
What about something to drink?
We offer a Kiwi-style coffee menu! Lenore studied and worked as a barista part-time during her time in New Zealand and wanted to bring that coffee culture back home.
All of our coffee beans are single origin from Smile Tiger Coffee Roasters and all of our drinks feature double shots of espresso.
Our current list of bevvies include: long black, flat white, cappuccino, latte, mochaccino, hot chocolate*, loose leaf teas, and tea lattes.
Our current tea varieties include: English breakfast, earl grey, chamomile, peppermint, sencha (green tea), and chai.
We offer Minor Figures oat milk as our dairy alternative. While lactose free, this alternative is not gluten free – containing between 21 and 100 ppm of gluten. “Gluten free” products must contain lower than 20 ppm.
Bring your reusable cup to save some $$$ and the planet!
*Our hot chocolate can be made completely dairy free because our mix is made in house. Premium cocoa powder, organic golden sugar, and kosher salt – that’s it!
I am *insert dietary restriction*. What can I eat?
We try our best to have a few gluten-free options in the shop at all times including at least one dairy-free macaron (all of our macarons are gluten-free). Although we try our best to cater to as many restrictions as possible, we cannot guarantee that any item is completely allergen-free.
Are you a peanut-free facility?
Yes! While we use tree nuts, we don’t have any peanuts or products containing peanuts on site.
What methods of payment do you accept?
Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Interac Flash, Apple Pay, Android Pay, and good ol’ cash monies.
We’re trying to do our part environmentally, so while we won’t print a paper receipt from you, you can enter your email address or phone number to have one sent electronically.
Is there space to sit?
We have a window bar with 6 stool at the front so you can people watch while you enjoy your treats.
Once the weather gets warmer we’ll have a few patio tables outside.
Do you have parking?
Yes! We have a small parking lot right next to the shop accessible from Ahrens St W.
On-street parking is available on both Ahrens and Wellington. Please obey all road signs to avoid being ticketed.
