What do you do when you have an egg factory, a bread factory, and you're surrounded by sugar maple woods?

Have a French Toast Fest!

Local chefs created specialty French Toast dishes for you to savour for a limited time. Check out the specials from French Toast Fest 2022!

Thank_you_30.png Donation_from_Wonderbrand_20.jpgA big shout out to Maritime Pride Eggs and Wonderbrand Inc. (formally Weston Bakery) for making sure the local elementary students have the opportunity to dine on French Toast! They are donating eggs and bread to the three elementary schools in town, Cumberland North Academy, Spring Street Academy, and West Highlands who will all be creating a french toast meal for their students during the week of French Toast Fest.  


Check out our award-winning French Toast Fest video, Better Together!

Some things are just better together!  Our award-winning video tells the tale of a matchmaker who brings two young neighbours – one works at a local egg production facility, the other works at a local bread plant – together over a meal of french toast, and suggest things are “better together.” The video was recognized by the Economic Developers Association of Canada with a Marketing Canada Award for best marketing video in Canada for 2019.

Big thanks to the folks at One Eyed Bear ProductionBrown's Guest Home, Buds to Blossoms Floral Boutique, Weston BakeriesMaritime Pride Eggs and to the neighbours on Clifford St. for their help in pulling it all together!
