TORONTO — Mabel’s Bakery has opened its fourth location in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood.
The 2,000-sq.-ft. space is Mabel’s largest location and features a retail section overlooking a bread kitchen where customers can watch artisan bakers at work.
“Our desire with Mabel’s, from the beginning, was to bring great-tasting, high-quality food and service to the local community,” says Lorraine Hawley, president of Mabel’s and co-owner with husband Bob Warburton. “Now, with this new location in the Junction, we have an open-concept bread kitchen that allows people to see the time-honoured techniques that go into creating our artisan breads, croissants and other baked goods.”
The new bread kitchen also has double the capacity of the current one in Roncesvalles Village, allowing production to be easily scaled up in the future. Customers will also have access to a small patio during the summer months and three dedicated parking spots — a first for the small bakery chain.
