Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something romantic in the air in Waterford, Ontario. It could be the old buildings and heritage homes with beautiful architecture around every corner. Or it could be the surrounding nature and towering trees spilling in to the towns core, lining the streets, and letting you know that you’re just steps away from immersing yourself in nature at Black Bridge, Shadow Lake or the Heritage Trail at any moment.
But certainly part of the romance comes from that warming small-town, tight community vibe that makes you feel welcome and right at home in Waterford.
I was taking a course in this charming town and was advised by the locals that I absolutely had to visit Ritzy Cakes & Eatery on my lunch break. While their specialty is cakes, and I mean beautifully crafted and delicious cakes, their eatery menu and sweet treats are equally mouthwatering!
Aside from their tempting menu, their genuine and friendly service stood out above all. The owner and staff at Ritzy Cakes truly embrace the spirit of small town service. During our lunch break one of the members of the course had to leave the line at Ritzy Cakes after ordering with out getting his food due to timing. Ritzy Cakes took it upon themselves to deliver his order to the hall where we were gathered so that this gentleman didn’t go without a lunch. This was truly a display of admirable customer service. Not to mention this man was lucky he didn’t miss his chance to enjoy a delicious Ritzy Sandwich!
While sandwiches are always my preference, the menu at Ritzy Cakes & Eatery also boasts an all day breakfast featuring a Ritzy Melt and scrumptious waffles. The lunch options also include panini’s, wraps, salads, and soups. Of course, the delectable dessert menu takes the cake (pun intended)! My sandwich was stacked high and made to perfection. For my desert, their apple fritter was highly recommended. I was actually told to get there early before they sell out because these freshly baked beauties go quickly. I got their just in time to snag a warm apple fritter and I enjoyed every bite.
After an awesome first experience at Ritzy Cakes & Eatery, I make sure to stop in whenever I am in town and I am never disappointed. I recommend you embrace the atmosphere next time you’re in Waterford and be sure to visit this quaint cake shop and eatery. You’ll surely be swept away by their genuine service and tasty creations.
