Bonnie’s Breads

I had a friend who used to work at the Independent Grocer at Champlain Square. She was the one who turned me onto Bonnie’s Breads, which is a small bakery that’s located right across from the supermarket. Her favourite item there was their ham & cheese croissant, which she thought was the best thing ever.

I haven’t visited Bonnie’s Breads for probably several years now. Luckily, they’re still open, and they’re still making ham & cheese croissants. In addition to the croissant, I also got a Boston Cream Cake, Raspberry Cheesecake Slice, Chocolate Mousse Cake, Long John and Beef Sausage Roll.

Boston Cream Cake ($1.65):

3.5/5
The cake was quite soft, tender and moist. I enjoyed the chocolate glaze on top that provided a nice bittersweet flavour. I do wish that there can be more of the custard filling.

Raspberry Cheesecake Slice ($1.95):


3/5
The cake was quite light and soft. I did find it to be slightly bland on its own. The raspberry swirl provided some sweetness, although I do wish it would be a bit more tart.

Chocolate Mousse Cake ($3.65):


4/5
The cake was very soft and moist. The mousses were smooth and light, and had a really nice flavour, while the layer of chocolate on top melted in my mouth and wasn’t at all waxy.

Long John ($1.65):


3.5/5
The donut was quite light and fluffy, with a slightly chewy texture. The chocolate glaze was not waxy and had a nice bittersweet chocolate flavour.

Beef Sausage Roll ($2.35):


3.5/5
The crust outside was relatively flaky with a nice flavour. I quite enjoyed the sausage inside, which was tender and savoury.

Ham and Cheese Croissant ($2.35):


3.5/5
The croissant itself was quite buttery. The cheese provided a great bit of richness while the ham provided a nice flavour.

I’m glad to have finally revisited Bonnie’s Breads. I didn’t think their ham & cheese croissant was the greatest thing I’ve eaten, but it was still good, as were most of their other fare. The prices were very reasonable. This is a bakery that I’d recommend checking out.

Summary:
