OMG Baked Goodness’ new location sells more than baked goods
For the past seven years, Lesley Mattina has been courting customers with her Pop-Tart impostors and too-good-to-be-vegan chocolate cupcakes, and now she’s spread her flour-dusted wings to Queen and Dufferin. Unlike the O.G. OMG, which is more of a wholesale bakery, OMG on the Park is a sit-down café, bakeshop and grocery store in one. On top of the usual sweet staples, there’s also a gelato bar stocked with unique flavours from Death in Venice, and a selection of sandwiches and salads. “All of our products are made by suppliers located within a 10-kilometre radius of the store,” says co-owner (and Lesley’s bro) Douglas Mattina. Staples like milk and eggs are popular with the neighbourhood’s condo-dwellers, but so are the no-fuss prepared dinner options including Stasis’ duck confit and Alimentari’s fresh pasta.
