Whether you’re looking for a sweet treat or a fresh loaf of bread, Barrie’s best bakeries have something for everyone.
Here are 8 tasty bakeries in Barrie you need to try.
Fox’s Bakery has been Barrie’s go-to for fresh baked deliciousness since they first opened their doors more than 40 years ago. Nothing is pre-made or out of the box at Fox’s. They are one of the few scratch bakeries still around, and we are grateful they’re right here in Barrie.
The Italian Eatery/Market
The Italian Eatery opened in Park Place in 2016, serving up authentic Italian cuisine. That went so well they decided to expand the business, taking over the unit next door and opening The Italian Market. Freshly baked bread, traditional treats, meats, cheeses and pasta – if you’re looking to take home that authentic Italian taste, the Market is the place for you.

Sigrid’s is owned and operated by 4th generation professionally trained European bakers. They’re 100% peanut free – great if you need treats to take to school! Cakes and tortes and pastries…oh my!

You know the saying “jack of all trades, master of none“? Holly’s Sweets & Eats in Barrie’s south end is the opposite of that saying. They are jacks of all trades, and masters of ALL of them. Fresh breads, pastries, cookies and cakes daily? Yep. Specialty cakes? You got it. Fresh or frozen meals to go? Check. To be honest, it would be easier to list the things they don’t do…and they do all of it really, really well.
