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.
Located in the heart of Osborne, not too far from the famous Confusion Corner, there is nothing confusing about why you've been coming back since 1983.
It’s pretty simple – word travels when everything is so delicious. We make the most mind-blowing treats with the very best ingredients.
Our selection of thirty-plus desserts, which includes cakes tortes and cheesecakes, 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.

Are you re-opening this weekend????
We're not quite ready yet! We're going to ask you to have your cake date at home this Valentine's Weekend + Louis Riel Day. With temperatures dipping well below normal and occupancy being capped at 25%, we feel that we can serve you much better and keep you much safer, by sticking to our current plan and offering take out + Doordash only.
Once this busy weekend is over we will re-evaluate before we throw open our doors and welcome you back with open, but distant arms. Stay patient and safe.
