The smell of freshly baked cookies is enough to bring us back to the days of growing up with little more to care about than exactly how many cookies we’d be allowed to eat. Our lives have gotten a bit more complicated these days, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t take some time to indulge in our favourite sweets while supporting our local bakers – without even turning on the oven! Pour a glass of milk and enjoy our recommendations for where to get the most delicious cookies in Brantford.
Abigail’s Bakery Express | 153 West St., Brantford | 519-304-8664

Just 1 More Specialty Treats | 20 Roy Blvd., Unit 34, Brantford | 519-771-4767
This delicious business operates out of Our Kitchen Brantford, a shared commercial kitchen with a retail space bursting with locally made fare.

San Agostino Bakery | 181 Lynden Rd., Brantford | 519-754-5454
If you grew up eating Italian treats, you won’t want to miss this local bakery that makes everything your taste buds desire. Although probably best known for their amazing lasagna and cannoli, this bakery offers incredible Soft Almond Cookies that are the perfect amount of sweetness to satisfy your craving.
Sweet Bakery | 403 Fairview Dr., Brantford | 519-750-4461
Probably one of Brantford’s best known bakeries, Sweet Bakery’s cookies are a local favourite! We love the swirly, rosette-design Whipped Shortbread Cookies and owner Stacey Bester’s beloved Sprinkle Cookies, a replica of her childhood favourite cookies from White’s Bakery.
The Bun Shoppe Bakery | 10 King George Rd., Brantford | 519-756-1121
If you haven’t discovered this local gem before, you need to take a trip to The Bun Shoppe Bakery. From pies to breads to squares, this bakery has everything you need for your next gathering (or for solo indulgence – we don’t judge). Their traditional Empire Cookies – a shortbread sandwich cookie filled with raspberry jam and topped with royal icing – are delightful!
