ABOUT US

Hand Crafted Bread, Pastry & Cakes

NANAIMO'S SWEETEST BAKERY

We are an artisanal bakery featuring hand-crafted breads and exquisite pastries, located in the south end of Nanaimo, BC in the Southgate Shopping Centre. We opened in late December 2015, hoping our artisanal views on producing top quality baked goods several notches better than the local alternatives’ offerings would be appreciated by our neighbours here in the Chase River area

 

What makes us different? Well first, our breads feature locally milled and sourced organic flours from True Grain in Cowichan, all our baked products are made by us in-house and completely from scratch - nothing is ever brought in frozen or par-baked from a factory.

 

Secondly, we strive to use locally produced ingredients as much as possible. Our cheddar cheese comes from the local producer Paradise Island and is some of the best aged cheddar you'll get your hands on. Our eggs are from Farmer Ben's Eggs in Duncan, the bread flours are milled in Cowichan at True Grain, much of the produce is from local farmers, the vanilla is produced in Victoria by Vanilla Blossom, the honey we use comes from Frederich's Honey in Cedar and so on.  We are proud of our house-made goods and amazing staff and hope that our dedication to the art of baking comes through in our final products.

      Cheddar
      Cheddar "Pull Apart" Loaves
      Based on the Peasant White dough, we chop it up and mix in locally produce Paradise Island Aged Cheddar or Cheddar & Jalapeño. Baked in pans, it creates a nice loaf that can be pulled apart in chunks for a tasty snack or, once it has set for a while, can be sliced for sandwiches. This bread has a 2 day preferment production process and is available daily.
      Peasant White
      Peasant White
      Looking for a simple sandwich style loaf? This is it! Made with organic untreated white only, it has a subtle taste coming from it’s preferment starter. We offer this loaf in a few forms: Batard (the hand-shaped oval), panned and Dutch Crunch - a fun, crispy “tiger stripes” topping made from rice flour. This bread has a 2 day preferment production process and is available daily.
      Light Rye
      Light Rye
      Our Light Rye contains 40% whole grain organic rye for a distinct flavour. We offer this in classic style or with toasted sunflower, pumpkin or caraway seed. This bread has a 2 day rye sourdough production process. Classic: Mon, Wed, Thur, Sat Caraway seed: Thu Pumpkin seed: Mon Sunflower seed: Wed, Sat

      Oatmeal Raisin
      Oatmeal Raisin
      It’s like desert in loaf form! This light textured loaf offers 25% organic Red Fife flour, steel cut rolled oats, raisins, Fredrich’s honey and cinnamon. Makes wonderful morning toast with a bit of jam or just buttered, or - IF you somehow manage to have leftovers - great french toast. Mmmm Mmm!!
      Sourdough
      Sourdough
      The Hearthstone Sourdough is our flagship loaf. Made, as all our breads are, with locally sourced and milled organic flours, it contains 90% untreated white and 10% whole grain rye flours with our own sourdough levain, water and salt. This loaf has a 3 day production process to go from starter to finished loaf, making it last longer and easier to digest. It is available daily. We also offer an additional flavour each day, such as cranberry & walnut, roasted garlic & parmesan, olive tapenade, toasted seed and more, each available on different days of the week. Shown is the cranberry walnut.
      Whole Grain Red Fife Loaves
      Whole Grain Red Fife Loaves
      These panned loaves are made with heritage, organic and locally produced & milled whole grain Red Fife wheat. The Whole Grain loaf is 60% Red Fife plus a kiss of local Fredrich’s Honey. The 7-Grain loaf is similar but includes a generous helping of cracked organic mixed grains (wheat, oats, barley, rye, flax, millet, buckwheat). This is by far our most popular if the Whole Grain loaves. These breads have a 2 day preferment production process. The 7-Grain bread is available daily while the 60% Red Fife is available Mon - Thur and Sat. On those Fridays, we offer a 100% Red Fife loaf!

      We are an artisanal bakery featuring hand-crafted breads and exquisite pastries, located in the south end of Nanaimo, BC in the Southgate Shopping Centre. We opened in late December 2015, hoping our artisanal views on producing top quality baked goods several notches better than the local alternatives’ offerings would be appreciated by our neighbours here in the Chase River area.

      It is an understatement to say we were not disappointed with the response - we could easily paraphrase an old Sally Fields Oscar moment here!

       

      What makes us different? Well first, our breads feature locally milled and sourced organic flours from True Grain in Cowichan, all our products are made by us in-house from scratch - nothing is ever brought in frozen or par-baked from a factory.

       

      Ingredients are selected for freshness and authenticity. Our cheddar cheese, for example, comes from the local producer Paradise Island and is some of the best aged cheddar you'll get your hands on. Our eggs are from Farmer Ben's Eggs in Duncan, the bread flours are milled in Cowichan at True Grain, much of the produce is from local farmers, the vanilla is produced in Victoria by Vanilla Blossom, the honey we use comes from Frederich's Honey in Cedar and so on.

       

      We believe in supporting island businesses, keeping things local (which means less of an environmental impact) as much as possible. And we do our share for the community as well, donating unsold baked items to our local chapter of The Boys and Girls Club of Nanaimo.

       

      We are proud of our house-made goods and amazing staff and hope that our dedication to the art of baking comes through in our final products.

      We’ve been featured in several local publications, on Food Network’s Baker Sisters and YTV’s The Zone.

      But much more important to us is that we have a constantly supportive customer base who have consistently rated our products as 5-star worthy (see our reviews here on Facebook, Google and Trip Advisor) and tell us in person how much they enjoy our sausage roll, breads, Nanaimo bars and more! We were also voted “Best Deserts in The City” for 2017.

      Great feedback like this lets us know we’re making quality products people really like. If you haven’t been here yet, you owe it to yourself to come check us out and see what all these other folks are raving about.

       

      Check out the numerous Facebook posts we put out for examples of our baked treats then come in and enjoy a few tasty goodies for yourself. We’re sure you’ll agree that Hearthstone Artisan Bakery is an outstanding bakery here in Nanaimo!
