Coming Soon: A Bakery for Charlottetown

Most of the time what you get at a “bakery” in Charlottetown is more “different forms of doughy glop” than it is something you’d actually look forward to eating. This is may be about to change: Leonhard’s Café and Bakery is set to open later this month at 42 University Avenue, in the space next to to Blue Note that was formerly occupied by the Perfect Cup Café, a pizza place and, most recently, by a lamp store.

Leonhard’s has been selling bread and cakes at the Charlottetown Farmer’s Market this season. Their bread is almost always sold out by the time Oliver; a testament, I hope, to its wonders. Stay tuned.

This is why farmer’s markets and other small self-organizing marketplaces are exceptionally useful beyond their function as community gathering places. They incubate small businesses, develop loyal customers and give food and social entrepreneurs a chance to hone their skills and their products before committing to opening a larger enterprise.

Kudos to Leonards and to the farmer’s market and customers that supported them, and best of luck for a long and promising future for good bread on PEI.

You forgot it sold Strawberries for about 2 months in the summer as well.

Looking forward to the bakery, thanks for the tip (though I walk by it almost everyday, never bothered to look at the sign). I just assumed it’d be a clothing store.
