My roots on Salt Spring Island began in 2002.  By 2003 I opened my first bakery at the tiny location in front of Moby’s Pub.   Some may have said, Salt Spring doesn’t need another bakery, but when you love your craft you still want to ‘go for it’ to show your new community what you have to offer.

My approach to pastries is a quality that most people say is reminiscent of their Grandmother’s work.

We are now located at The Merchants’ Mews.  Our clientele has remained as consistent as our promise of quality pastries you might expect from a small batch kitchen such as Jana’s Bake Shop.
