New Mabel's location features open kitchen
Toronto – Mabel's Bakery has opened its fourth and largest location in Toronto, which 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," said Lorraine Hawley, president of Mabel's, and co-owner with husband Bob Warburton, in a news release. "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."
In addition to being open-concept, the new bread kitchen also has double the capacity of the current one in Roncesvalles Village, allowing it to easily scale up production in the future, the release said. The bakery sources fresh-brewed organic fair trade coffee from Kitimai, a Toronto roaster. Customers will also have access to a small patio during the warmer months and three dedicated parking spots.
Hawley and Warburton opened their first bakery on Roncesvalles Avenue in 2008, followed by two more bakeries on Queen Street West and St. Clair Avenue West.
The bakery specializes in artisan breads, prepared foods, ready meals, home-style baked goods, artisan cheeses and charcuterie with vegan and gluten-free options.
