Bakery Cottage
265 Muschamp Road
Union Bay, BC

nce upon a time, many of us had mothers and grandmothers who baked from scratch with old family recipes…and who not only greeted us after school with hugs and kisses, but fresh-baked cakes, brownies, or cookies that were warm, gooey and oh-so-yummy.  And, then there were those unforgettable Sunday family dinners, complete with homemade bread or biscuits and desserts that had us smacking lips and licking our fingers!

But…times have changed.

Most moms work, and baking from scratch is just one of those domestic activities that doesn’t fit into today’s hectic schedule. Yet, we all recognize that there is no substitute for baking just like mom’s!
Just Like Mom's Bakery Cottage

So, Bev O’Hara has come to the rescue with Just Like Mom’s,
a self-serve bakery cottage (and great rest-stop), in Union Bay.  It’s perched up on the hill and easily accessed by turning onto Muschamp Road off 19A—approximately 4km north of the Denman Ferry terminal at Buckley Bay (near the highway rest stop).

More Than Just Yummy Baked Goods…

Bev is one baking mama, using old family recipes with her own modern twist. Her menu changes often, and seasonal goodies are added, so check it out often and let her know if you have any special requests.

In addition to mouth-watering baked goods—breads, buns, pies (7 kinds of fruit pies), cookies, and so much more—Just Like Mom’s offers homemade jams, soups, and various other homemade goodies. 

And, you can get your Farm-Fresh Eggs at Just Like Mom’s self-serve Bakery Cottage...and if you time it right, Franc (Baking Mama’s other half) will serenade you with some great guitar tunes.

Just Like Mom’s is the perfect place to stop when you’re heading along the coast  for a pick-you-up when you stretch your legs or rest from your journey.
