The Glebes' from-scratch, small-batch, family owned & operated bakery/cupcakerie

-Satisfying your sweet tooth since August 2007

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that Second Avenue Sweets will be closing its doors, for good, as of June 30, 2022.

Our loyal clientele and dedicated staff have enabled us to withstand the challenges of covid 19. However, inflation, supply chain issues and the increasing cost of supplies continue to be a challenge. Compounding this is the difficulty of attracting and maintaining adequate staffing. All of these factors have made signing on to a new lease, simply too daunting. As a result, I have made the difficult decision to close our doors. 

I realize that after 15 years in this community, many of our loyal customers will be saddened or frustrated by my decision. Some will never understand the sacrifices that my family and I have had to make. It has been a labour of love, and at times a trial. But now, I feel that it is time to hang up my apron, and spend more time with my kids, my husband, and my aging father.

It has been an honour and a privilege to have been included in your celebrations, family dinners, traditions, and holiday feasts. I would like to wish you all the best and thank you for your patronage. On to the next adventure!
