Our History

Serving traditional Portuguese baked goods since 1991, Nova Era Bakery first opened its doors in Toronto’s Little Portugal community with a unique vision of providing customers with an experience that recreates the authentic feeling of a European café. Over the years, our family owned and operated business has grown through Southwestern Ontario, while maintaining the traditional methods of daily handcrafted-from-scratch, freshly baked goods. Our mission is to help continue see that the tastes and traditions of authentic Portuguese and European pastries, breads and coffees are shared locally in our communities.

The Best Portuguese Custard Tarts in Toronto – blogTO

Nova Era Bakery originated in Little Portugal on Dundas West, but has expanded to 10 shops (six in Toronto) over the past 20+ years, including to this location in Bloorcourt. This is a good place to grab a coffee and a pastel de nata (Portuguese custard tart). The tart is creamy, with the customary burnt top and a flaky crust. No wonder it was deemed one of the best in the city .

Best Portuguese Bakery in Mississauga! – Trip Advisor

“You can tell when a business is successful by the fact it is always busy. You won’t ever find Nova Bakery empty! Quite simply the best in-store baked bread and rolls, plus sweet and savoury baked goods. Great deli meats and cheeses as well. The jewel in the crown is the little cafe counter. Go and grab a roll, I favour the Pada buns, go to the counter and order your custom sandwich, toasted or plain. My favourite is Ham and cheese with mustard, Mayo, lettuce and tomato. Visit, you won’t be disappointed ” – Crumplehorn | Mississauga, Canada
