Ontario’s biggest self-guided Butter Tart Tour

With more than fifty participating bakeries, cafes and restaurants from across the Kawarthas Northumberland region, we know we have the perfect butter tart to please just about anyone. Flakey crust? Yes! Firm crust? Absolutely! Gooey and runny filling? Of course! Perhaps a firmer filling that stays put? We’ve got it!

We have your perfect holiday butter tart.

Our bakers have won awards at Ontario’s Best Butter Tart Festival and the Royal Winter Fair for their unique and flavourful combinations including but certainly not limited to cream cheese butter tarts, pumpkin butter tarts, mincemeat butter tarts, blueberry butter tarts and even hot and spicy butter tarts for those who want some heat with their sweet.  But don’t worry! We haven’t forgotten about plain, raisin, currant, pecan or walnut butter tarts at all. Try one, or two or twelve! You won’t be disappointed.  Our butter tarts make great hostess gifts, stocking stuffers and are a delicious addition to any festive meal. Surprise Santa and swap the traditional cookies and milk for butter tarts and milk. 

The year-round Kawarthas Northumberland Butter Tart Tour is easily accessible from Toronto, Kingston or Ottawa as a day trip, or stay for a bit longer at one of the many resorts or hotels across the region.
