What's Inside?

The Courtland Bakery!

When I find someplace that is outstanding, I could snap photos all day long! This huge bakery is so packed full of delights, it was hard to decide what to photograph and what to leave out! Yesterday, my post was all about the delicious beef pies we feasted upon.

Today... I'll tell the rest of the story!
If you can't see the whole photo on your screen, just click it!

Of course, when we think the word Bakery, we always think of bread first. All types of bread and many dietary breads are available. Example: No sugar, no cholesterol rye. 
This bakery will not disappoint. I believe (and it's evident in the taste,) that they still use real butter and quality ingredients. The community was originally settled with Polish, Hungarian and Belgian immigrants and this food reflects those origins. 


Baby Pies abound with any filling imaginable!

An enormous kitchen boasts cleanliness and a sweet smell. I've been shopping here since I was a teenager.

Bars galore can be purchased singly or by the dozen!
I saw Three kinds of nanimo, date squares, brownies, dream bars, butter tart squares and carrot cake sheets. I can't remember them all!

I've bought these before! They certainly have a little bite to them!

One of my other first choices is puff pastry and they make these the way I like, nice and brown. My sister bought elephant ears.

I had to take home four of these Cheese Crowns. Two lemon, one cherry for Dick and one blueberry for me!
Puff pastry made with cream cheese instead of butter. A little cheesecake like filling in the cups and then a fruit of creamy filling on top. Pure Bliss!

Lots of choices for those hard to find foods. Sauerkraut, noodles and chutneys. You can see the cheese counter to the left.

Some pretty wonderful selections of cold meats. Many of them made locally. My sister bought this pork loin and bacon loaf. Gosh! it looked good!


They have about ten tables set up so you can sit in front of those big picture windows, bask in the sunshine and eat your favorite sweet!
Although, it's always hard to find an empty one.

Come! Join us!

The pies look delicious! I would have a difficult time deciding which one to choose. Maybe since they're Baby Pies, I could have several : )
