With October 16th being LAST day open at the original location , I wanted to let you all know how THANKFUL I am !

It is bittersweet to be closing the chapters of this location . This is where my dream began. Where I made countless beautiful friendships; customers became another family. Where I experienced many feel good moments and my heart will forever be touched.

There was also many hardships, tears, failures, spilled butter, long hours, and a bit more butter

Most of all there was uncontrollable laughter, bundles of support, literally a village of friends and family always lending a hand, much much fun and a Crumbuns Family to call my own

My dream would not be here today without all of your continued support, I am more than blessed and grateful

⭐For anyone who is ever thinking of giving up on your dream, Please don’t….
I can can tell you IT IS SO SO WORTH IT

I hope I have added as much SWEETNESS to your lives as you have to mine

Looking forward to this next chapter with you!

See you soon,

❤Joanne

About Us

STORY OF CRUMBUNS

My name is Joanne Emberson — The baker and store owner of Crumbuns Bakeshop, established in 2016. All of my creations are a labour of love and in tribute to my Granny, Anne Emberson. The name “Crumbuns” is a direct nod to Granny! My Grandpa called my Granny his Crumbun as a term of endearment.

When I was younger and my grandmother was in the hospital, I would bake her treats to cheer her up. I promised her that I would open up a bakery in her honour, and through hard work was able to make that become a reality for the both of us. Our location on Concession Street is just blocks from where my Granny lived for many years before her passing in 2010.

We offer a creative assortment of handmade confections & baked goods using only the best ingredients, We have been voted Hamilton’s best Buttertart! And well known for our Buttertart Ice Cream Sandwich!

Please enjoy some of our family recipes and share them in your home!

SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY

Crumbuns Bakeshop values the importance of being able to pay it forward, and does so by donating proceeds from two of our baked goods (“Nate’s Candy Cookies” and “Carter’s Buttons”) to a nearby hospital. These two menu items are made in memory of my family members that sadly lost their lives to cancer.

Crumbuns also works with local suppliers to source fresh and authentic ingredients, and support other local businesses in the neighbourhood. Some examples include: locally roasted craft coffee by Command Coffee as well as handmade pierogies made from locally sourced ingredients by Stuffed. Take a peek inside the Stuffed location to find some of our delicious desserts, too!
