Gold Winner The Old Apothecary

Silver Winner Julien's Patisserie, Bakery & Cafe

Bronze Winner Scanway Bakery + Café

The Old Apothecary is a dream for anyone with a sweet tooth and/or a love of homemade bread. Owner Laura MacLeod says the reaction to this year’s win “was a mixture of excitement and relief,” especially given the bakeries that have opened recently. “There have been some new, very good bakeries opening. We work really hard all year. After a tough summer season when we're all tired and tourist-weary, it's a reminder that I opened this bakery in 2015 for downtown Halifax residents and workers. And our customers still support what we're doing, which makes it worth all the tired feet, hot kitchens and grumpy tourists.”
