The History of One of the Legendary Winnipeg Bakeries
Winnipeg bakeries had Jeanne’s Bakery join their ranks in the early 1930’s.
We began serving our delicious dainties and cakes to Winnipeggers in the early 1930’s. Our reputation grew and in 1939 we were asked to supply dainties to King George and Queen Elizabeth at Government House, as part of their Canadian Tour.
The Royal couple enjoyed them so much, that Jeanne’s was granted the privilege of becoming purveyors to Royal visitors at Government House.
In the years ahead, Jeanne Van Landeghem (namesake of Jeanne’s Bakery) was invited to Government House to have dainties and tea with Royal visitors.
Winnipeg Bakeries are On the Map as a Legend Continues to Grow..
Some recent history that shows the popularity of Jeanne’s Cakes came about the summer when Jennifer Lopez came to Winnipeg to film a movie.
During the filming, she had a birthday, and Winnipeg wanted to show their appreciation by giving her Jeanne’s birthday cake. It was enjoyed, and two weeks later two more cakes were ordered, by her entourage.
Monty Hall, a famous Winnipegger who now lives in California, always picks up Jeanne’s cake when he visited.
