Where are you?
We are in LaHave, Nova Scotia, close to the LaHave River Cable Ferry.
3421 Highway 331.
When are you open?
We are open 7 days a week, year round. We are closed on Christmas day, Boxing day, January 1 & 2, and any day the weather is SUPER bad. If you are questioning how bad it needs to be, give us a call!
How long have you been in business?
The LaHave Bakery has been in business since July 2, 1985. It is owned by the same family the whole time. The building was purchased by the Watson’s from the Gray family in 1984 and has been restored and reclaimed every year since.
Are you able to accommodate a gluten free diet?
We mill our own flour on site, as well as bake all of our goodies from scratch, so there is much flour in the air. We do have flourless treats available (molly bars, peanut butter balls, black bean brownies), as well as take home dinners(shepherd’s pie, lentil shepherd’s pie, thai vegetable curry), frozen soups are all flour free, and a feta and cranberry salad on the lunch menu. Our soups of the day rarely contain flour, but it is best to ask!
Are you able to accommodate a vegan diet?Most of our treats are made with butter (we do not use shortening or lard). We make a vegan energy ball which is full of amazing stuff and sweetened with maple syrup. Our thai vegetable curry, black bean soup, and african peanut soup are vegan. On our lunch menu, many of our daily soups are vegan, so please ask! We also have a mediterranean wrap made with roasted red peppers and tonnes of vegetables and a house made hummus that is 100% vegan!
Are you an organic bakery?
Although we use many organic ingredients, we are not 100% organic. Our mission is to offer the best quality of food so that it is affordable for everyone. Some organic ingredients are out of range to meet this goal.
Do you cater?
We can prepare a lunch or sweets order for you if you give us some advance (4 days minimum), but we do not cater large events.
Do you make wedding cakes?
We make really nice cakes, but not fancy wedding cakes!
Do you make birthday cakes?
YES! Give us a week in advance and we’ll decorate it for you!
How do I order specialty breads?
Please give us a call 4 days before you are picking up your order to order specialty breads. You must order at least 2 loaves. Let us know if you would like it sliced!
Are you hiring?
We often start hiring for our summer team in March. We sometimes have positions available in the off season, but we keep resumes on file for a year when we receive them. We are willing to train you if you have a desire to work in this fun and fast paced environment. The number one thing we need from you is a cover letter outlining why you are drawn to work here. Maybe you grew up in the area and want to venture behind the counter. Maybe you want to learn how to make bread from scratch. Maybe you are new to the area and want to meet the community. Maybe you have a passion for local ingredients.
We want to see YOU in your letter! (Extra points for hand written ones!)
