Catherine O'Donnell at Willow Cakes & Pastries

Your Niagara-on-the-Lake Patisserie Café 

Stepping into Willow Cakes and Pastries feels like a trip to a European patisserie. Customers experience the feel of both a local bakery and an exquisite boutique – surveying the breads, chocolates, cakes, and tarts in gleaming display cases, watching Catherine and her team at work through the viewing window, or lingering over coffee and a newspaper. Whether you are in the market for a show-stopping wedding cake, a dessert to impress your guests, a gift to be savoured, or a coffee and quick bite on the go, Willow Cakes and Pastries is truly a Niagara-on-the-Lake “must-stop-shop”.
