Taste a mother's love in every bite of a treat from Charmaine Sweets. Owner Teresa Ho and her daughter are baking cookies, cakes and other sweet pastries from their Leaside locale. Trained in the classic French techniques of pastry baking, Ho not only shares her love and expertise of all baked goods through her menu items, but she teaches baking classes as well, always giving everyone enough one-on-one attention so they can go home and pay the love forward. Some of her customers' favourite items are the rich, chocolatey sacher torte sandwich bites and her light and airy chiffon cakes, topped with a slightly sweet whipped cream and fresh fruit. Only European-style butter, fresh nuts and Lindt chocolates are used to ensure all items meet Ho's high-quality standards. Come enjoy the family-like hospitality that has made Charmaine Sweets a favourite for years.
