A small bakery in Kerr Village has been named the winner of Visit Oakville's Talk of the Town Best Butter Tart Award.

When it comes to making award winning butter tarts, this little shop in Kerr Village really is The Sweetest Thing.

The small bakery that puts a twist on the traditional Canadian treat with their butter bar square has earned Visit Oakville’s Talk of the Town Award for the Best Butter Tart.

“Specializing in custom cakes, cookies, and other baked goods, The Sweetest Thing prides itself on its high-quality, handcrafted treats that cater to a variety of occasions and preferences,” said Visit Oakville of the bakery located at 282 Kerr Street.

The Talk of the Town awards recognize and celebrate local businesses that have made a significant impact on the community. The winners are selected by the public through a week-long vote.

Black Forest Pastry Shop, located at 184 Lakeshore Road East, finished second in voting, while Aveiro Bakery, located at 2530 Sixth Line, Unit 12, placed third.

“The Sweetest Thing’s win in the ‘Best Butter Tart’ category is a testament to their dedication to delivering exceptional flavours and memorable experiences,” said Visit Oakville, in announcing the winner.

The local bakery makes a host of different treats, including cookies, cupcakes, ice cream and custom cakes for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, or any occasion.

They also offer an assortment of vegan and gluten free cookies.

“Some must-try menu items include the key lime pie, apple crumble bar, and, of course, the butter tart square,” added Visit Oakville. “For those with a sweet tooth, The Sweetest Thing has something on the menu for every taste and craving.”

The next Visit Oakville Talk of the Town category will be announced in August.
