Monastery Bakery offers an exceptional deli and cheese counter, delicious hot and fresh take-out meals, delectable pastries and cakes, a wide selection of grocery items, exquisitely fine cuts of meat and the very best seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Our love for baked goods begins with bread. It has been our passion since opening in 1990 and we’re sure everyone who’s walked through our doors can agree. Our customers come anywhere from a short walk away to out of towner’s that love to stop in for their favourite freshly baked breads. We have Oakville’s largest selection of traditional and gourmet breads, buns and so much more. Our bread room on a weekend morning is truly a sight to see, and a scent that is simply to die for. Each and every day our bakers transform their passion into everything from baguettes and bagels, rustic and like ‘grandma used to make’, to sweet or savoury. No matter what day it is, we guarantee you’ll find something to please your palette.
Our team at Monastery Bakery includes a full-time crew of expert in-house butchers preparing only the finest quality of fresh meats and seafood in-store daily. At our meat counter you’ll find only the very best, like Certified Angus Beef, Ontario Lamb, Ontario Pork, and free range Poultry to name a few. Plus, our butchers prepare a vast selection of mouthwatering counter specials like sausage, burgers, ready-to-cook marinated meats, fish and more, all made in-store from scratch.
