Welcome to Beaches Bakeshop & Cafe
Here at Beaches Bakeshop & Cafe' we want our love for food, community and friendship to shine through. Come by for a fika* and a chat, a healthy and balanced lunch, do take- out or call ahead for that special order and we will have it ready for you when you arrive!
Owner Anna Tvinnereim has had food and nutrition as a priority for her whole life. Decided early on that healthy eating was a good thing. Studied nutrition and education at Uppsala University in Sweden before heading to NYC in 1988. While there her love for food, people and different flavours grew even stronger. After working as the executive chef at The Swedish Consulate General's Residence life has taken Anna to Portland, Oregon in the Pacific Northwest and now to Toronto, Canada.
We believe in good ingredients and great taste. We cook everything from scratch. Soup for example is made from our in- house vegetable stock and we only bake with real ingredients, no shortcuts!
A big part of what we serve goes back to Anna's scandinavian roots. We make the famous Swedish Cinnamon bun, Kanelbulle, with freshly ground cardamom every day! Seasonally we offer Saffron buns and Semla buns as well. If a Princess Cake is what you would like, just call and place the order! What about a Smörgåstårta or a Sandwich cake? Other scandi treats are Mazariner, Dammsugare, Choklad bollar, Kokos toppar to name a few!
