Poetry would be comprised entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to bread and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot: for $6, you get $13 worth of baked goods at Blak’s Bakery on Langlois Avenue. Featured in a CBC News Article about Paczki Day, this family-owned bakery has been filling the air with the scent of freshly made bread, cookies and pastries for nearly a century. Tray upon tray of daily-baked goodies lie within, enticing customers to munch on a flaky cherry turnover ($1) or gobble up an apple cream cheese pound cake ($4.25) rather than their neighbour's ham sculpture of William Shatner. All breads are baked in the original 1918 Peterson brick hearth oven using original family recipes and contain no artificial flavours or preservatives.
- Paczki production was in full swing at Blak's Bakery all day Monday and overnight into Tuesday. For 92 years, Blak's has used a family recipe, and everyone in the clan is expected to pitch in and help on Paczki Day. Twenty-six of them expected to box 24,000 paczki this year. Most paczki are pre-ordered, and by 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Blak's was sold out. – CBC News
- Just picked up my pre-ordered packzi's and I ate two of them right away. Never order your Packzi's from anywhere else. I love Blak's Bakery. – Rootstock, FoodPages
Blak's Bakery Limited
Since 1918, Blak’s Bakery has prepared a large variety of sweet and savoury baked goods with care and ages-old know-how. Although the bakery is small in size, it is known for boxing approximately 24,000 paczki per year on Fat Tuesday—a feat that earned the attention of CBC News. In addition to paczki, the bakers create an array of goodies, such as mincemeat pies, 9-inch cakes, and breads, which are baked in the original 1918 Peterson brick-hearth oven instead of on the engine block of an overheated car.
