Swiss Farmer Bakery

This simple sign in Embrun, Ontario (about 40 minutes east of Ottawa), drew my friend Peggi and me into its doors.


Don't you just love this vintage chef sign advertising fresh quiche?


Those quiche really do look tempting.


The shelves of bread were bordered with fine lace.


What bakery would be complete with out the requisite fruit pies?


Or a powdered sugar-covered strudel?


I had to have one of these custard-filled coronets...


...and one of the millefeuilles too.


Even a Swiss baker is ready for St. Patrick's Day.


We were happy we stopped, particularly after we saw these happy face cookies.

Those happy face cookies are called Shpitz Buaba (spelling likely wrong). Our Swiss student made them for us. She said they translated to "bad boys"

Yum yum yum. That apple streudel is divine.
Glad to see the spring thaw has started.
