What’s your favourite Christmas story?
The absolutely funniest Christmas story that I know is Dave Cooks the Turkey. You can listen to it here.
We’ll have take-out Turkey Dinners again on Dec 24. This has become a seasonal favourite and with good reason. You get a generous serving of turkey with mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, veggies, cranberry sauce and a slice of pie. ALL made in-house and all for $11.50 + tax. Pre-order by Dec 15 and save 10%
It’ll be a busy couple of weeks at the bakery so our updates will need to be quick.
The sandwich special today will be on Rye Bread
and the soup is Farmer Veggie
The reason I’m writing this update several hours later than I might have a month ago is, well, ’tis the season’.
Christmas is the busiest time of the year in the bakery and if everything goes according to Hoyle, the shop should get busier every day until the grand crescendo that is December 24 (there’s still time to pre-order)
One of the things that are different this Christmas is that we’re making Pumpkin Pies. In years past we only made them at Thanksgiving and there was a very good reason for that.
My former boss could not stand the smell of the Pumpkin Pie filling.
I, on the other hand love pumpkin pie…in fact I’m eating a big piece right now at 8:50 in the a of m and it’s delicious!
You should sample a piece today with your Fish-Friday Soup or your Hoagie Sandwich.

Is it just me or do those 2-bite brownies from Costco taste like chocolate plastic?
We’re featuring our Brownies today and trust me, these are a completely different species. Kinda like the difference between Usain Bolt and some 49 yr old baker from White Rock.
Our lunch special today is a European Weiner w/ drink for just $3.90.
Put it on a fresh Hoagie bun (the weiner not the drink) with some Dijon mustard and for dessert an aforementioned Brownie and you’ll want to give me a hug just for suggesting it!
