Since 1960, Tre Mari Bakery has been an institution in its neighborhood of St. Clair West, playing an important role in Toronto's Italian immigrant story. Our family business is now in its third generation. Customers draw stronger connections to brands and businesses with a story, and our bakery has a long-established history.
Over the decades, Tre Mari Bakery has grown a large and loyal customer base. From the families of Italian immigrants who arrived in Toronto when the bakery opened in 1960, to the working-class families who have lived in St. Clair West over the years, to the new influx of young professionals with families in the surrounding neighborhoods, we serve an extremely diverse customer base — and all feel welcome!
The experience of shopping at a family-run business with a strong history, as well as the quality selection of homemade foods and interactions with our friendly staff, have earned Tre Mari Bakery many loyal customers over the years.
