About Mary McLeod's Shortbread

Women-owned since the start

Mary MacLeod's Shortbread legacy began back in 1981 when Mary Macleod opened Canada’s first-ever shortbread shop under the marquee of Toronto’s Capitol Theatre. This tiny bakeshop was the origin of the signature small-batch shortbreads and uncompromising quality. Mary would stay up all night baking for the crowds of cookie lovers who would line up outside — often selling out by noon. After four decades of creativity, crunch and craft, Mary Macleod’s Shortbread is still proudly family-owned and operated. And even though Mary is no longer with us, her spirit lives on in every batch of our melt-in-your-mouth artisan shortbread.

One Tough Cookie

Mary was equal parts sweet and feisty, fair and tenacious. She was raised in Scotland and learned to bake from her mother and French grandmother. As a breast cancer survivor, Mary opened her bakery in her mid-40s to support her family. Even after losing her home in the 1980s recession, Mary kept the shortbread shop open out of sheer will and hard work. She lived for her children, grandkids and customers and wanted nothing more than to make them happy. 
 

A (chocolate) chip of the old block

Mary’s commitment to family and sticking to her guns is shared by daughter-in-law Sharon. After a successful 20-year corporate career, Sharon traded banking for baking and joined Mary’s business to spend more time with family. After Mary passed away in 2016, Sharon has continued growing the business, always with mother-in-law Mary’s original mission in mind: If it’s not the best, why eat it?
