  Don's Bakery is well-known for our scrumptious rolls and buns made from our sweet dough made famous by original owner Don Lloyd. People drive from far and wide to try the world-famous "Don's Scone" as well as picking up dinner rolls, parker house rolls, & hot dog buns and more. For those with a sweeter tooth a taste of our mouth-watering cinnamon buns, Chelsea buns, bath buns, danishes and croissants will have you craving more!

  Located in the cranberry capital of Ontario, Don's Bakery takes advantage of the local suppliers and uses Bala cranberries in our cranberry-lemon loaf and cranberry muffins. But, if cranberries aren't your "cup of tea", we offer a wide variety of muffins including chocolate chip, carrot, raisin bran, blueberry and apple cinnamon and also a blueberry or lemon cake loaf which are always crowd pleasers.

  Our bakers pride themselves in making out-of-this-world, made-from-scratch donuts. If you've never tried one, you are missing out on one of the most delectable, sweet experiences in life. Don's Bakery is one of the only places you can get a real authentic apple fritter or high-demand sugar twist donut, along with many other favourites (including the chocolate éclairs). Owner, Bryan Foster recommends coming in bright and early to get the most selection while they last!

  Every season, thousands and thousands of pies and tarts are sold to our customers who have made these items a tradition and staple in their homesand cottages. Our delightful, flaky pastry and home-made fillings, from fresh ingredients are what make our pies and tarts so great. Tart flavours include; butter, raspberry, cherry, apple, blueberry and lemon meringue. Pie choices are: apple, dutch apple, blueberry, raspberry, cherry, strawberry-rhubarb, lemon meringue and lemon cream.

  For an on-the-go treat, try picking up some of our yummy cookies (packed in dozens) or our tasty and sweet brownies, date squares and butternut squares. They are also great when feeding a crowd!

  Since 1947, our savory meat pies make an easy but also mouth-watering meal! Don Lloyd passed down this recipe from generation to generation and it is still one of our most in-demand products.

When entertaining, the Don's Brie Puff is a gourmet hors d'oeuvre that always impresses.Made on the premises from creamy Brie cheese, topped with Muskoka cranberries and wrapped in French pastry, take it home, thaw and bake and enjoy!
