In 1996, Chris Emery and Larry Finnson decided to introduce the world to Chris Emery's grandma secret recipe. Clodhoppers, a graham wafer/fudge cluster treat, quickly became a phenomenon in the candy world.
Chris and Larry have struck gold again with OMGs, deliciously scrumptious chocolatey graham wafer clusters, mixed with diced almonds, and toffee bits, available in both milk and dark chocolate.

The philosophy of Balzac's is simple: serve exceptional coffee in a beautiful environment. Balzac's stand out in the crowded coffee industry for their special blend of atmosphere and product. Owner Diana Olsen strives to create an aesthetic in each café which reflects the spirit of its surrounding neighborhood. And the coffee is truly extraordinary — Balzac's micro-roasts their own beans in their Stoney Creek Roastery and beans are delivered fresh each week.
Touted in the New York Times as a "don't miss" destination and the Toronto Star as "the most spectacular coffee shop in Canada", Balzac's is an exceptional experience that can't be missed.
