Black Bear Bakery’s Last Week

It is with a heavy heart that we regretfully say goodbye to Black Bear Bakery.

Iona Lutt, owner of Black Bear Bakery will be closing down the location due to health. We wish nothing but the best for her and her family and Chisholm will greatly miss the smell of baked goods on Lake Street.
I will certainly miss the absolute BEST Tuna Melts I have ever had.

The City of Chisholm loves you, and we will miss you.

Stop in before their permanent closure for breakfast or lunch and show support for a family that has added a dash of flavor and warmth to Chisholm.
