About Baked

Why is Baked Expectations so widely known as a Winnipeg icon? It’s pretty simple – at Baked, we make sure everything is fresh, fun and delicious.

Our selection of thirty-plus desserts, which includes cakes tortes and cheescakes, makes it impossible to choose and necessary to come back. From our gigantic burgers, to our unbelievable clubhouse, to our entire morning-till-late-nite menu, we’re very particular about the food we serve and the ingredients we use. Attention to the tiniest details ensures that your dessert, your food, and your experience is fabulous, each and every time.

Wrap this all in atmosphere that gives a playful nod to retro 50’s chic, and you’ve got a relaxed yet bustling space that welcomes people to do their own thing – whether it’s critiquing the show, lingering on that first date, or visiting from out of town for that elusive piece of cake that you just can’t get anywhere else.

Since owner Beth Grubert served up her first slices of Shmoo in 1983, she’s been in constant motion keeping things fresh and entertaining. Her care and dedication has kept our customers coming back for both their favourites and for new delights for over 30 years. So you’ll often find Beth amidst the action in our lively place - making sure everything is perfect, chatting with longtime customers, or happily watching neophytes stare in wonder as they peer into our dessert display for the first time. Because as she says, “they always go crazy. It’s something that never gets old.”

Many love to get Baked, not only at the café but at all their special events. Our flourishing catering business serves up whole cakes, business lunches and event catering to all our fans who must have Baked at their place. We’re located at the centre of Osborne Village - the hot spot for urbanites and indie shops in Winnipeg. Just another treat that makes Baked simply irresistible.
