Today’s Apple Annie’s Cafe and Shop began as a specialty food and confection shop in the basement of 109 Mississaga St E (home of Mariposa Market) in downtown Orillia in 1989. Fresh fudge made on the premises became our signature product and turned our Shop into a destination. We opened our Café at 101 Mississaga St E, just two doors up from the Shop in 2007. Delicious and unpretentious scratch-made food and baking, excellent coffee and a welcoming atmosphere make our Cafe a destination, too. We are very much a “community hub” featuring the work of local visual artists and participating in Orillia’s many cultural events.
The Shop was merged with the Cafe in the spring of 2020 – a planned move but advanced by several years thanks to the pandemic! We are open Monday to Saturday, 7 am to 6 pm except for Statutory Holidays. The old basement Shop is now our weekend “Fudge-and-More Kiosk” – an “express” version of our Shop, if you will.
Situated in our old Shop in the basement of Mariposa Market, our Kiosk is open weekends and Statutory Holidays for now. Here we offer our full selection of fresh fudge, chocolate novelties, nostalgic candy and a sampling of our gourmet food and maple products.
