About

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.

Fudge-and-More Kiosk

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.

"Introduced" to Orillia many years ago at our Cafe opening for another wonderful performer Doug Paisley.Catch The Weather Station at the 2022 Mariposa Folk Festival..........Emerging out of Toronto's vibrant folk scene, Tamara Lindeman debuted a moody, introspective sound with her independently released ‘East’ EP in 2008. Her LP ‘The Line’ followed in 2009, expanding on an earthy, lyrical style, driven by her distinctive fingerpicking guitar and banjo parts. For the next Weather Station release, Lindeman worked with friend and collaborator Daniel Romano; signing with his You've Changed Records label to release the critically acclaimed follow-up, ‘All of It Was Mine’, in 2011. Though the album was only released in Canada, it gained wider exposure for the Weather Station, leading to several North American tours with acts like Bahamas, Basia Bulat, and Timber Timbre, as well as a tour of Japan. In addition to collaborative guest appearances on releases by Doug Paisley, Siskiyou, and Field Report. Lindeman earned a SOCAN Songwriting Prize nomination in 2013 for a co-write with Steven Lambke of the Constantines. After the release of 2014's 'What Am I Going to Do with Everything I Know’ EP, she signed with North Carolina label Paradise of Bachelors and traveled to Paris to record her third LP, ‘Loyalty’, which was the first Weather Station album to receive both American and European release, and consequently became somewhat of a critical breakout album. Lindeman followed up in 2017 with an eponymously titled LP that saw an expansion of the Weather Station sound into more rock-oriented territory. Now, Lindeman leads us into a brilliant and bold new sonic landscape with ‘Ignorance’, out now through Fat Possum and Next Door Records.............The 2022 Mariposa Folk Festival takes place July 8 - 10, at Tudhope Park in Orillia, Ontario..........Festival Weekend passes are available here:mariposafolk.com/what-goes-on/get-tickets/ .........#mariposafolkfestival #howwillitfeel #summervibes #livemusic #musicfestival #theweatherstation #orillia #ontariolivemusic #indiemusic ...
