I didn't have a meal here, but went instead to pick up some pastries, of which they have multiple varieties. The Dundee cake, balmoral tarts and empire cookies are ALL delicious. Definitely worth the drive.

A great place to stop for scones for breakfast or lunch. Always fresh and usually gone by noon. Try the shortbread cookies as well.

We loved this stop in Grand Bend! Warm, out-of-the-oven tarts for me, meat pie for my husband, and not-too-sweet shortbread for the long kids. Everything was tasty & fresh.

My family have been ordering from Grandpa Jimmy's for all of our birthday celebrations for as long as a can remember- great pastries, pies and cakes. My parents really enjoy the meat pies as well!

Popped in on Friday afternoon and was delighted to find fresh cheese bread!! The bread was in fact so fresh we were doubtful it could be put through the slicer. With the staff's expertise: success! Absolutely delicious. Would also recommend any of their sausage rolls,...More

Loved all the pastries and snacks. Scottish influenced bakery well worth a visit if you're visiting Grand Bend, not too far from the main drag/beach, you could walk if you wanted.
