I'm looking for a good bakery to buy fresh pies or sweets in the Kitchener/Waterloo area... anybody know of a place?

    Haven't been myself but Golden Hearth bakery in Kitchener has been mentioned on the board before -

    Golden Hearth

      Try these:
      - Norris Bakery on Frederick at Edna (kiddy-corner to Frederick Mall) for more homestyle north american baking. They have killer Rhubarb squares and are well known for their (soft) cheese bread sticks
      - Vincenzo's on Belmont at Union. This is *THE* gourmet shop in town, specializing in everything you could desire, from meats to cheese, spices, olives...I don't believe they make most of their own desserts, but they do have a good assortment of smaller/individual size rich desserts and cakes. I am positive they get their drool-worthy cheese danish from:
      - Nougat, 600 Queen St S, between Mill and Highland. European style bakery. Amazing
      - Sabeltine. I'm not sure if that is the correct spelling, but they are a fairly new shop on King st in Waterloo, not far from Union when moving away from the hospital. I haven't been in, but I've heard good things about them.

      Good luck and happy eating!

        Sabletine serves lunch items and croissants/chocolatines and various other individual-sized pastries. I'm sure you can ask her (I'm guessing the chef and owner since I've seen her a couple of times doing stuff) about special requests and whatnot.

          Sabletine is excellent. She makes wonderful cookies, macarons and little cakes - among the best I've had. I don't personally like the execution of the more "pastry" based items (croissants, tarte tatin), though her quiches are quite nice.

          I second Nougat bakery as well... not sure if they make their own, but they definitely have a good assortment that are different than ones you might find in other bakeries.

          Vincenzo's is good too for dessert selection. They don't make their own, but each dessert sign says who made it... they have several that are from Dufflet and other shops that I think are local.

          Don't forget the St. Jacobs Farmer's Market
