All pick ups must be done Thursday, Friday or Saturday of that week, during regular shop hours.

My Story

Joan + Stephanie = Joanie!

My love of creamy butter tarts began in elementary school when my friend Stephanie and I used to ride our bicycles to the corner store.

We spent our paper route earnings on a dozen butter tarts that we shared between giggles, thoroughly enjoying every last crumb.

I have always been a skilled cook and baker. My recipes were rebuilt several years ago with learning that I was Celiac. With determination - and many hours of trials - I have perfected my gluten free pastry recipe.

I visited my dear friend in hospital earlier this year and brought her some of my homemade butter tarts.

We had a few laughs, reminisced about our youth, and enjoyed our favourite treat. Stephanie passed away peacefully on June 1, 2018 ... National Butter Tart Day.


My heart was broken. In an effort to heal, I turned to my ever present entrepreneurial spirit and my passion for baking to create Joanie's Pastries.

I set out to honour our cherished memories with not just a good butter tart but a spectacular gluten-free butter tart ... and, yes it is possible! 

I hope you enjoy every bite!

Word Around Town

'Delicious. Delightful. Yummy. Tasty. Toasty. Scrumptious. A delicacy. There are no words that describe how good these sweets are. I strongly recommend checking it out when you get the chance. So. Good.'

'I stumbled in here by chance and am SO glad I did. The staff are very friendly and helpful! Lots to choose from. I still don't entirely believe these morning glory muffins I purchased are gluten free.....they are so fluffy, moist, and delicious! Will definitely be recommending and returning.'

Meghann R 

'Incredible! Delicious carrot cake and friendly service.
Don't let the "gluten free" part scare you off if you're not a gluten-free kind of person. Some of the best baking I've ever had, gluten or not!

Jarrod D

'Joanie's gluten-free treats are the best!! She's delightful and very helpful! Looking forward to going back often for staples, savory items and baked goods.'
