One Little Bakery, By Mickael Durand (AKA Mickael's Cafe Librairie, in Lindsay) is a taste of France right here in the Kawarthas. Mickaël grew up with 3 brothers in Chateaugiron, France, next to a boulangerie (bakery). He became interested in baking at a very young age. In 2005 Mickaël visited Quebec, and then returned to Canada the next year to work in a bakery and later ended up baking  at a summer camp in Haliburton where he met the love of his life, Jane. Mickaël’s decided to return to baking in 2015 and in 2016  after opening two bakeries in France with one of his brothers, he opened a small cafe bakery and French Book Store in Linday. Freshness is Mickael’s first priority. Everything is baked that day. Everything is made with a true passion for baking and a drive to excel!
