It wouldn’t be Easter weekend without bread, sugar, and butter, #amiright? Somehow this combination pairs extremely well with the resurrection of Christ. And these hidden gem bakeries in Saskatchewan know it!
If you’re looking to get your carb-load on this weekend, you’ve stumbled on the right post. Whether you’re dreaming of hot crossed buns, or looking for a fresh-made loaf of sourdough, Saskatchewan is home to some of the best selection you’ll find in Canada.
Hit the road to a place where people come together to enjoy the best-of breads and sweets. These destination hidden gem bakery treats* come to you from a recommendation thread in the Travel in Saskatchewan Facebook group, amalgamating hundreds of Facebook reviews, word of mouth (same, same, but different?), and personal experience.
You may be too late to order these for Easter dinner, but it’s never too late to sample them on your next road trip. Stock up on hidden gem baked goods from around the province.
*Most of these bakery treats don’t have many pictures to accompany them, so you’re going to have to trust me on these. Better yet, you could take a picture, hashtag #dosask, and share your experience with me!
Here’s what you should order from hidden gem bakeries in Saskatchewan:

With all of this delicious local baking, I smell a Do Sask bus tour of hidden gem bakeries in the works. Do I have enough bread-loving doers to make this a thing?
