Touchless Curbside Pick-Up! Order Your Fresh Baking Today
So nice to be back baking! We are now offering touchless curbside pick up at the back of the store of many of our most popular items which must be pre ordered ahead of time. To keep our bakers safe we’re running with a small team so we’d really appreciate at least two days’ notice. We’ll have our full line of super fresh donuts, along with some of our most asked for cakes, pies, muffins, cookies, cinnamon buns, lemon loaf and a few really nice bread selections. We’re expanding the selection daily but keeping everybody spaced out at this time means we won’t be able to offer all our bakery creations at this time. Click on the online order form below, check out our facebook page or go old school and give us a call at 705-325-8885 to place your order. We’ll be open for pick ups 7 till 5 Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Our Back Porch Cafe is open from 7 am till 5 pm Tuesdays through Saturdays now. There’s coffee, lattes, sandwiches, mac ‘n cheese, salads, donut & muffins for take away. We’ve converted it to a ‘mini Mariposa Market’ so you can pick out cakes & pies right out of the showcase and there’s super fresh loaves, cinnamon buns, cookies, tarts, teabiscuits and bread for sale. Plus jams, jellies and some fun giftware items for those birthdays-and belated birthdays too! We’ve taken extra safety precautions to ensure the safety of our customers and our staff so please be patient with us as we navigate through these times together!
A Little History…
It’s incredible to think that baking at our location dates back all the way to 1859 when George Vick opened his general store and bakery. The bread was baked in 3 massive hearth ovens and delivered door to door by horse drawn wagon. In 1911 the Vick family replaced the original wooden structure with the grand brick building we so proudly occupy today. In 1929 the building was sold and became Orillia’s leading furniture store for over 50 years, most notably as Anderson’s Furniture. The baking operations were moved to the rear of the building and continued until the 1960’s.
We’re Making Plans for a Safe Reopening
While we are indeed now open for take out coffee, sandwiches and yes, Texas Donuts in our rear Back Porch Cafe we are busy making plans and constructing safeguards and barriers with hopes to reopen the main store Mariposa Market in early June. It’ll be a little different shopping experience for a while but our entire store family is really excited about getting back serving the community up fresh baking, hot coffee and apple fritters warm out of the oven. You’ll also notice when you drop by that we’ve been very busy renovating all the shops with new flooring in the main store cafe, Seasons Shop and Scent Shop along with an expanded air conditioning and fire sprinkler system in anticipation of opening up our historic upper floor that’s been out of the public eye since 1960.
