If baked goods are your guilty pleasure, you’ll love OMG Baked Goodness, one of the hottest bakeries in Toronto’s Brockton Village. This devilishly sweet shop serves up an array of tempting goodies, including sweet cookies, scones and pastries, savory breads and perfectly iced cupcakes. All of these delicious treats are schemed up in the OMG kitchen, which is where magical goodies are baked up for both shop visitors and wholesale vendors alike.
The mastermind behind all this sweetness is Lesley Mattina, who decided to give the restaurant world a go after graduating from university. She quickly fell in love with making pastries and goodies of all sorts, which led her to eventually start making and selling goodies out of her home. OMG Baked Goodness had been born, but it wasn’t until 2009 that she opened up her first storefront on Dundas Street West.
Now, OMG Baked Goodness is quickly gaining a reputation for not only delicious but also creative concoctions, including vegan cupcakes, flavored marshmallows, stuffed foccacia breads and flourless tortes. She also whips up classics like buttery scones, chocolate biscotti, peanut butter cookies and chocolate swirl brownies with flair and precision. Those with special dietary needs have found that her flourless and vegan creations open up a whole new world of baked goodies for their particular food restrictions, which has made OMG all the more popular around town.
Mattina still sells her creations wholesale to area businesses. In fact, you can find OMG baked goods at places like Green Beanery, Café Nervosa, Biff’s Bistro, Mascot Café, Jimmy’s Coffee and the Gladstone Hotel, in addition to several other businesses mentioned on the OMG website. That means that even when you can’t squeeze in a visit to the OMG storefront on Dundas, you can still stop by one of your favorite restaurants, cafes or coffee shops to pick up one of these tasty treats.
OMG can also provide custom creations for your catered event. Whether it’s a tower of cupcakes, a delicious breakfast pastry spread or a special dessert, OMG works with customers to plan out a special menu that meets their needs.
One thing’s for sure – no matter what you order at OMG, your taste buds are sure to be satisfied.
