Who We Are

The Gingerbread Man has been open since 1988, originally from the G.T.A (Greater Toronto Area). A five star chef's apprenticiceship for seven years and then a seven year golf apprenticip for the C.P.G.A. lead the Gingerbread Man to the village of Manotick in Ottawa in 2001 to start all over again.

After painting custom cars for 5 years at Dez's Paintshop, Richard went fulltime in the gingerbread business and introduced butter tarts in 2010 and has been an instant success. People come from near and far to get the best butter tarts on the planet (earth that is). Going full time in 2011, and having met his love "Kaori", they have taken it to the next level.

Kaori's shortbread and banana bread are nothing short of exceptional, while her decorating skills are 2nd to none!

With the intoroduction of "Tracey's" ice cream in 2015, Kaori and Richard are set to welcome all to their shop of magic and what we call "A little Slice of Heaven".
