the Rookes


tarts My husband, Terry and I had been retired for a few years, and found that we needed to do something we both enjoyed with the extra time on our hands. Since we were both retired bakers we decided to open up a handmade Butter Tart and Pie Shop in Maynooth, Ontario, a small town near the world-famous Algonquin Park.

After running our store for over 8 wonderful years and selling over 315,000 tarts the shop became too much for us to handle now that we are in our 70's so we decided rather than stop baking which is our passion we decided to continue our venture in a different way.

Dear customers, for the year 2018, please call 613-689-4049 to see where our tarts are available. You can also check our facebook page for up dates weekly.
Thank you Terry and Carolyn
