Welcome to Cliffside Hearth
A small craft bakery located in Toronto's east end, specializing in authentic handmade European style breads.
Using traditional methods we maintain the principles of artisan baking - gentle mixing & long cool fermentation. Our work is humble & done manually, only minimal equipment is required: a mixer, a wooden table, & a hot oven.
Our breads are created with stoneground flours & whole grains using time honoured techniques of stretching, folding, & shaping the wet doughs, transforming them into loaves that slowly ferment overnight in folds of canvas & linen.
Early each morning the breads are slashed with a razor & baked on the stone hearth of our oven.
The results are worth the wait - a crisp carmelized crust & moist shiny crumb, exploding with flavour.
Delicious wholesome bread, a noble food, shared with the people you love.
We invite you to visit & taste.
