An Awesome Review From Stimuli Mag

February 19, 2010

Stimuli Mag, “an online lifestyle magazine,” that focuses on life in BC’s Fraser Valley wrote an awesome review of Mozart Bakery and Cafe.  We thought that we’d post it here for you!  Thanks, Stimuli.  

It’s Music in Your Mouth

It’s like something right out of TLC’s Cake Boss or The Ultimate Cake Off.

Designed by Estelle Matheson, half of the husband & wife team that own the Walnut Grove-based Mozart Bakery and Cafe, these cakes are so beautiful it would be difficult to even cut into one. They are customized with hand drawn artwork to fit in perfectly with your theme. You MUST visit their online gallery. One of our favourites is what we like to call the “Alice in Wonderland” cake shown here.

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, baby shower or a special dinner, a Mozart cake is the perfect finishing touch. While their specialties are Italian Cream and French Mousses, they also have a large selection of buttercream cakes, cheesecakes and European style tortes.

Mozart is more than just a bakery. They are also a great place to go for lunch or coffee. Luigi, the other half of the team, fires up the ovens a 1am to create amazing artisan breads for their panini sandwiches.

Luigi and Estelle are committed to being socially responsible. They buy fair trade products whenever possible, use environmentally friendly packaging and donate any leftovers to a local meal centre for the homeless.

This dynamic duo has unlimited passion and energy and their love of what they do is communicated through their edible artwork.

Mozart Bakery and Cafe is located at #12-20349-88th Ave, Walnut Grove. 604-882-0433.


HST Will Take a Bite Out of Your Meal

January 25, 2010

The harmonized sales tax (HST) is set to be introduced on July 27.  The new legislation will increase the tax on food from 5% to 12%, a move that will dramatically increase the cost of a meal and of groceries in BC.   The HST  will also cost jobs and it will hurt those that can barely afford food.  If you care about rising food costs, get involved and speak out.

Here’s some information from the No Meal Tax site:

“If you don’t speak out against the new meal tax you’ll be paying 12% on your bill for every bite you eat in or take out. That’s an additional 7% tax on top of the 5% you already pay for food at restaurants and coffee shops. Everything from coffee to lunch at the campus or pizza with the kids. Gulp! Thousands of restaurant jobs could go down the drain as well. So petition your MLA or MP and get involved.”

New! Biodegradable packaging and other environmental news

Delivering a wedding cake in our new SmartCar!

Delivering Dierdre & Andrew's wedding cake in our new SmartCar! June 14 2008

We’re proud to anounce that we are using new biodegradable packaging wherever possible. 

Our cold drink cups and salad containers are made of corn based plastic, which is compostable and biodegradable.  We’ll soon be using potato-based disposable cutlery, also compostable and biodegradable, we’re just waiting for our supplier to get them in stock, any day now.  

Our plastic carry-home bags are made from a biodegradable material which is a by-product of the plastic making process, so not only does it biodegrade in the land-fill, it also reduces the amount of industrial waste being put in the landfill.  These bags can also be recycled along with regular plastic shopping bags. 

While we are very excited about these new products, we still encourage our customers to bring in thier own re-usable shopping bags, and whenever you can please enjoy your coffee or your lunch in our cafe, where we can serve your food and drinks on real dishes.

We certainly make no claims to being a “green” company, but we are doing what we can to be as envioronmentally friendly as possible in our business practices.  We are using compact flourescent lights, all our printing is done on recycled paper, we’ve installed anti-glare tint on our windows to reduce energy consumption, and we are delivering our wedding cakes in a fuel-efficient SmartCar.  We’ll continue to make changes wherever we can!
