A long proud history of baking!

Popular bakery has been a staple in Edmonton for over 20 years and remains a family business to this day. Located on Alberta Avenue the bakery began on the corner of 118th and 94th street in its early years and then relocated to the east corner of the same block on 93rd street where it still operates today. It was one of the first businesses to commit to improving Alberta Avenue and has a beautiful mural painted by a local artist on the east wall that represents the family’s roots from Portugal and the embracing of a new home and community. The Family’s baking tradition goes back 3 generations and started with Antonio ( Carlos’ Grandpa) in Angola, and continues here today run by Olimpio and Lurdes Soares, and their sons Paolo and Carlos.
