The Delicious Goods
A Little About Us
We are a small scratch bakery located in the east end of Ottawa, in the village of Cumberland. At the Black Walnut Bakery, we transform simple ingredients with masterful techniques into something beautiful and delicious. Everything at the Black Walnut Bakery is made from scratch by a loving hand with a commitment to delivering a moment to savour and remember. We invite every guest to take that moment.
Doing Our Part
At the Black Walnut Bakery, we believe in doing our part to support the many charities and people of our community that need help. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the continuous support of our friends, family and our community so it is only fitting that we give back where we can. We support three charities that are close to our hearts: The CHEO foundation, the University of Ottawa Heart Institute and the Easter Seals Foundation, along with the Cumberland Community Association, which has always been a huge supporter of our little bakery.
The Ukrainian people need our support
The situation in Ukraine will have devastating humanitarian consequences for tens of thousands of families and is quickly becoming Europe’s largest refugee crisis of this century.
Your support can help ensure that Ukrainians forced to flee their homes are sheltered and safe.
We Love Our Guests
Always such a pleasant experience checking out the Black Walnut Bakery! I’m a repeat customer and every time I go I am very happy with the quality of food and the kindness of the staff. If it’s your first time checking this place out, I recommend their quiches as well! They’re super light and fluffy. Always a 10/10 experience, keep up the great work Black Walnut Bakery team!
Definitely deserving of 5 stars! The pastries are fresh and delicious. The staff are friendly. The takeout window does get busy at times, but it is worth the wait. Coffee is good, I had an iced oat milk latte, and it was prepared well. Butter tarts were one of the best I’ve ever had. They have very great croissants, definitely worth the drive. Prices are also reasonable too
We came across this bakery on a whim and boy are we ever glad we did! Very kind staff! We started with the savoury croissant bun and let’s just say we got back in line for more. So delicious and flavourful! Hands-down the best butter tarts I’ve ever had! Not too runny and the right amount of pastry! So good! We will definitely be back for more!
Everything we purchased today was delicious. Was meaning to save some pastries until tomorrow but they didn’t stand a chance. The almond croissant was so flaky and buttery. The honey cookies remind me of the cake my grandmother used to make, with a deep honey flavour. Wish I bought more, it was so good and hearty with a cup of tea. Next time 🙂 Hoping for some baked goods on the menu with black walnut or poppy seed in the future.
I finally tried it! It’s been on my list forever. I preordered through their website, grabbed more items as well AND went to their Cumberland Farmers Market stall. Everything was great!
Delicious bread. Pastries are top-notch and the coffee is always outstanding. You can tell this is a family business that cares about their customers! My wife and I love visiting from Perth when we are in the area.
Very kind and friendly service. The lady who attended us really took her time to answer all my questions about the menu items, since it was our first visit to the Black Walnut Bakery. Among other goodies, we ordered two Lumberjack Benny croissants, and, since the eggs came out runny, we got these items for free. Everything tasted great, and we will be back!
Probably one of my absolute favourite bakeries, and I travel the world for a living. Everything they make and bake is fresh and flavourful, and the staff is always friendly and inviting. I look forward every time I drive through for a stop at this place. Give it a try, it’s worth it.
I have always said that the presentation at the meal is very important and here at “The Black Walnut Bakery” they take this very seriously and also the right combination of ingredients. Everything that I wrote until now is to say that it is the perfect place to enjoy a good quality product, to this I include the awesome customer service that their pleasant smiling faces is the cherry at the top of the cake at “The Black Walnut Bakery”.
I rarely give 5 star, but this Bakery deserves it. The food is amazing and not overly priced. Well done Black Walnut Bakery, well done.
