About Us

Michel’s Bakery Café is a European-inspired bakery café that is part of Threecaf Brands Canada group.


The idea of a bakery café selling sandwiches, salads and freshly baked breads and pastries is really nothing new. In 1979, Michael and Lou Bregman opened the first Michel's Baguette at the Toronto Eaton Centre. What made this café different was the premium quality and great selection of pastries, sandwiches and salads. Not only could you smell the pastries, but you could see them being baked throughout the day … not just in the morning!

In November 2009, Michel’s Baguette was purchased by Bruegger’s Enterprises Inc., of Vermont, USA, and is operated as a retail division of Threecaf Brands Canada Inc. With plans to expand beyond the current 13 locations in Ontario, Threecaf began a full rebranding project to ensure that Michel’s is positioned for success.

The first new Michel’s Bakery Café opened in October 2010 with a refreshed, updated store design, name and logo. A true European-inspired bakery café serving fresh, quality, convenient cuisine.

In 2010, Threecaf Brands Canada caught the attention of Groupe Le Duff in France with its star banner reknown internationally : Brioche Dorée. Michel's Bakery Café is now part of a great family of brands sharing the same vision : to offer fresh quality food, baked on the premises every day.
