The famous Carlo’s Bakery has temporarily closed in Mississauga.

The New Jersey-based bakery opened with great fan-fare in January 2022 at 167 Lakeshore Rd. W. in Port Credit. It was the first location in Canada.

But a notice on the website says the bakery has closed for renovations.

“We are expanding our kitchen to offer you a more enhanced experience,” the notice reads.

The shop is to re-open in April but the exact date is not mentioned. The bakery couldn’t immediately be reached for more information.

The owner did respond to a post on Google Reviews, which suggested a pizza restaurant was opening in the location. While there is a sign at the location advertising for staff for a pizza restaurant, Carlo’s said they are reopening.

“We are rescheduled to reopen mid April,” the post on Google from Carlo’s Bakery read.

There are several Carlo’s Bakery “cake ATMs” across Canada in Alberta, Quebec and the GTA including machines in the Toronto Eaton Centre, Sherway Gardens and Square One.

The bakery is known for its rainbow (and chocolate fudge rainbow) cakes as well as carrot, cookies ‘n’ cream, red velvet, black and white, vanilla confetti and chocolate fudge flavours.

The Port Credit location also had cannoli, lobster tail pastries, rainbow cookies, donuts, cupcakes and fresh-made mozzarella cheese.

Carlo’s Bakery garnered fame after the family-owned bakery was featured on the TLC hit show Cake Boss.

Before that the bakery had an over 100 year history. Carlo Guastaffero opened the first location in 1910. It was acquired by Bartolo Valastro Sr. in 1964 and since his death in 1994, matriarch Mary Valastro and her children Grace, Maddalena, Mary, Lisa and master baker Bartolo Jr. “Buddy” Valastro have expanded the business.
