St. John's Bakery
St. John's Bakery is one of Toronto's finest and unique artisan bakeries. We bake organic breads and sweets, made with certified organic flour, and natural and certified organic ingredients.
Our purpose is two-fold:
- to provide our customers with outstanding artisan breads and sweets; and,
- to be and to build an inclusive community through the gifts and the needs that each of us brings.
Our Community is a place of healing and nourishment occurring through the awakening of the God-given dignity and value of each person, while responding to each person's needs. Bakery workers have included refugees, people struggling with addictions, people with emotional troubles or mental illness, and single parents struggling with poverty.
