"When I come to Muskoka to visit my family, I always look forward to the fabulous lunches with Don's scones!  Don't ever change that recipe!!!!"
Marg Aldsworth, Oshawa, ON
“For three generations now our family weekends mean Chelsea buns, whole wheat scones, butter tarts and brownies. And we always run out!!  Thank heavens all the best things freeze so we can enjoy Don's year round. Better than anything in the city!!”
The Finley, Kelly & Golding Familes, Toronto, ON & Grand Cayman Island
“From the smell of fresh baked scones that hits you when you first walk in the door, to the smiling faces that meet you when you place your order, Don’s Bakery has been an irreplaceable part of our family’s cottage tradition for the last 30 years.”
The Pilons, Greensville, ON
“In June, I discovered Don's Bakery and the absolute best chelsea buns in Muskoka. Our cottage route now includes a detour to Bala so that we can stock up on Don's tarts, scones and especially the chelsea buns.”
JoAnn, Burlington, ON
“Don's Bakery is always the first stop on the way into the cottage and the last stop before heading back to the city. The scones make the best buns for sandwiches and burgers and the cinnamon buns are always a delicious treat :). Get there early to make sure you don't miss out!”
Vicki Franklin, Toronto, ON

Whenever we make a trip up to Muskoka we always stop in at Don’s Bakery. They have the best apple fritter donuts and the most amazing cinnamon buns. Well worth the calories, we love them. We are so happy to see the Fosters maintaining the same high quality of products and service and keeping this sweet tradition strong that the Davidsons worked so hard at building.”
 Evelyne, Thornhill, ON

“The donuts are AMAZING, but you need to get there early before they are all gone!
Mike Pelc, Toronto, ON

“Don’s Scones make for the most delicious addition to breakfast,
lunch and dinner!”
Eli Brenner, Thornhill, ON

“I have discovered that Don's Bakery is a little bit like Costco. It is absolutely impossible to buy just a loaf of bread. On our very first invitation to a Muskoka cottage our host dispatched their son to Bala to get Don's scones for lunch. They assured us it was worth the drive to Bala and they were right. Fabulous sandwiches made with these fresh delicious scones which were subsequently eaten on the dock. A unique to Muskoka experience; I could not imagine ever passing through Bala without loading up on scones and other treats.”
Fran, Burlington, ON

"It would be next to impossible to think of the Muskokas without thinking of
Don's Bakery. It truly has become a cornerstone in the Bala community that for years has... and continues to, represent quality, value, all packaged with exceptional service!"

Cory Greenham, Lowville, ON

"The Don's Bakery experience is a great one - fabulous scones, fabulous breads, and even more incredible butter tarts, squares, and pies. Not to mention their meat pies and sausage rolls. The friendly staff makes it a pleasure to shop at Don's.”
Donna and John, Arthur, ON
