Read about Ciboulette in an old thread- do they still bake good sticky buns and muffins? http://www.ciboulette.ca/Ciboulette_C...
What other places might you recommend for old school baked goods?
Thanks for any suggestions.
Local Jo's (Oxford Street) has Good cookies)
Two If by Sea (Ochterloney St. Dartmouth) has excellent Croissants
Smiths (Agricola) is an old style grama bakery
Juliens (Hydrostone) has some yummy pastries
Marys Bread Basket (Brewery Market) has good Sticky buns
also if you are out of town
Biscuit Eater in Mahone Bay has possibly the best biscuits ever
and Leo's in Annapolis Royal has fantastic Sticky Buns
Janes To Go next to Janes on the Common corner of Cunard and Windsor, has excellent baked muffins and egg filled breakfast muffins for breakfast on the go. Also wonderful bars and to die for cjocolate shortbread cookies garnished with Fleur de Sel. My favorite muffin is the Lemon Cranberry corn bread muffin, very lemony and hearty with a delicious crust. Also great sandwiches, unfort don,t expect to pick one up on way to work as they don't appear til later in am . sadly. Also great frozen entrees, desserts to heat up at home.
Ciboulette still always has muffins and they are delicious. They don't often have the sticky buns any more as an item you can just drop by and pick up one of, but I have been told by the staff you can order a half dozen with a day's notice.
(although just to contradict myself, when I was there last week, they did have some individual sticky buns for sale. not sure if it was just a one off thing or not)
The Gingerbread Haus, 1138 Queen Street, Halifax, has by far the best cakes, cookies, pastries and bread (incredible) in Halifax. Don't miss it.
