When Hollanders Marten and Sally Posthumus first set foot on Canadian soil in 1951, they immediately began working for a potato farmer in order to save money. In 1955, the duo cashed in their savings and opened The Bake Oven, a bakeshop specializing in both Canadian and European products. Today, The Bake Oven's Edison Avenue location houses multiple culinary components, including a delicatessen with European sausage and cheeses, a bakery that concocts specialty cakes and tortes, and a European-style restaurant, with homemade lunch fare as well as savoury European treats such as bitterballen, krokets, and boiled clogs. The shop also stocks a selection of gifts and kitchenware.
