Sweet Capone’s Italian Bakery, Lacombe, AB

Sweet Capone’s Italian Bakery, Lacombe, AB

One of my favourite drives is to drive secondary Alberta Highway 2A south, from Edmonton, through Wetaskiwin, Ponoka and through the pretty little town of Lacombe in Central Alberta.

Over the past ten or fifteen years, Lacombe has been listed as one of the most desirable small towns in which to live in all of Canada.  It’s small size, proximity to nearby ‘bigger’ city Red Deer, and more than its fair share of historic (for Alberta) buildings make this a pretty place to visit.

We had been introduced to Sweet Capone’s Italian Bakery on a motorcycle day trip earlier this year, and yesterday we had a nice break from unseasonably cold and wet September weather, blessed with a balmy + 15 Celsius.  It was a perfect day for a leisurely drive in the country and to take the new Shelby GT350 for an ‘outing,’ accompanied by my friend Richard and his new (to him) BMW Z4 roadster.

Delicious Double Chocolate Cream Horn

Located on Lacombe’s ‘main street’ (4512-50th Avenue), this small, character-rich bakery serves up a range of lovely confections.  I chose the Double Chocolate Cream Horn ($4.75) and a coffee; it was a perfect time for coffee after a short, hour-and-a-half drive in the country.

And, the smart chap I am, I bought one to take home to Ingrid.  I got to be a hero for the rest of the day.  🙂
