About us

Using only the finest ingredients, the staff of Weil's of Westdale take pride in producing high quality, “from scratch” bakery and pastry products for our customers. Over the past two years, we have been seeking opportunities to provide our fine breads, cakes, and pastries to restaurants and cafes that desire ‘something more' than the ubiquitous fare supplied by wholesale companies.

Whether you are seeking artisan breads, melt in your mouth rolls, an assortment of pastries, moist and delicious birthday or specialty cakes and cupcakes, cookies, breakfast treats or a good old fashioned loaf of bread, you will find lots to tempt your tastebuds at Weil's of Westdale.

Our staff say hello

Sandy Zimmerman was a clinical nurse specialist for over 30 years when she took a bread baking course at George Brown College in Toronto , Ontario and fell in love. After completing the Baking and Patissier programs at George Brown, she continued her training with Pastry Chef Catherine O'Donnell at the Queen's Landing in Niagara-On-The-Lake. Sandy specializes in producing artisan breads and developing new recipes for our customers' enjoyment. She also has created sugar-free desserts and a number of gluten-free breads, cakes, and cookies.

Catherine Tompkins steps out of her nurse educator role at McMaster University to don an apron at the bakery on all of the holidays. She is also the creator of the bakery display windows that are looked forward to by scores of Westdale kids every season.
