Looks like the secret is out on Stettler’s own Buzzed and Baked located at 4917 – 50th St.
The business, which started two and a half years ago, has been named Stettler’s Best Kept Secret in the 2019 Stettler Business and Citizenship Awards.
Stephen Teasdale, who has lived in Stettler all his life has managed Buzzed and Baked since December 2017. He says they are “beyond thrilled” by the acknowledgement.
“Anyone who hasn’t been here should definitely come down and see what we’re all about,” he said.
Buzzed and Baked is a cafe, which serves breakfast, lunch and supper with a number of specialty coffees and baked goods made in-house.
It also has a retail section featuring smoking necessitates, bath and body products, as well as locally-made artwork and merchandise.
Teasdale says they are most known for their delectable, mini cheesecakes and two bison sandwiches that foodies “will not find anywhere else in town.
“We do a lot of the marketing on Facebook and Instagram but most of it is through word-of-mouth,” he said.
“We haven’t done a lot of advertising so we must be doing something right to keep us around.”
Buzzed and Baked was nominated for having, “Incredible foresight and risk taking in starting a business depending on the legalization of marijuana,” as well as, “Great customer services, fabulous food options,” and for having a, “Cozy atmosphere suitable for all ages.”
Teasdale says they are also looking to the future and want to bring customers downtown at night.
“There isn’t a lot of things to do at night in Stettler, so we are hoping to do little more stuff during the night,” he said.
Down the line Buzzed and Baked is also hoping to expand its menu and possibly sell its own coffee beans.
