Looking for a kitchen (with ovens) to rent

Every year I host a cookie exchange near Christmas time. My friends and I discussed finding a place where we could all bake together and sit down afterwards to enjoy the treats.

Does anyone know where I could start looking?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Not sure if they would offer that specifically but Dish does private classes, maybe they can do private rental as well?

    1. Actually check with the Kitchen at the St Lawrence Market. It is stocked with Miele appliances.

      I had a brunch party there last year and the space is really amazing. Gabrielle was really lovely to deal with as well.

      Also take a look here -

        Can I ask what the cost for renting this space as you did would be? (Approx)

          Good question, I recall it being really reasonable (like $300?) but I rented it 2 years ago and I know they had been considering raising the prices. I checked the website but it doesn't say. I know there is a big difference in price between day and night rentals.

      2. You could contact the Brickworks about renting out the GE Cafe kitchen there

        1. The Depaneur rents out its kitchen - not sure how many ovens there are though.

          1. What about the Roux in Hamilton?
