If approved, the company hopes to convert the former La Boutique d’Or premises at 43-45 King Street.

The bakery was started by Yael (Gail) Mejia in the early 1990s serving top chefs and food venues.

In 2003, Tom Molnar and friends joined Yael’s premium wholesale craft bakery and grew the business organically.

In 2022, GAIL's was awarded 14 Great Taste Awards by the Guild of Fine Foods, the most respected accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food.

"GAIL’s is committed to improving end-to-end food system.

“It carefully selects like-minded artisan producers to make the quality ingredients which go into baking.
