The autumn colours are spectacular this year so we wanted to take a drive outside the city to take them all in. It’s always nice to have a tasty destination so we decided to head to a bakery in the town of Erin on Ontario’s butter tart trail. Holtom’s has been baking their delicious pastries from scratch since 1946, and it’s such a picturesque place. A perfect first stop of many bakeries famous for their versions of the iconic Canadian pastry.
We got there later in the day so several of their varieties of tarts were sold out, but there was still a great selection. The pecan butter tart was heaven. They were all delicious.
Driving to Erin is easy and we saw spectacular fall colours. Take Highway 401 west then head north on Highway 410. Continue along Highway 10 then turn west toward Erin on Highway 24.
There are two butter tart trails in Ontario. Holtom’s Bakery is one of over 20 stops on the Wellington County trail, which is closer to Toronto: The other trail is in Kawartha-Northumberland.
Holtom’s Bakery is located at 78 Main St. in Erin, Ontario.
