Klaesis History

Kläsis, pronounced CLAY-zee-s

What's with the ä? It's an umlaut and it's part of Swiss-German grammar, making the a long. We, Annina, Rahel, and Sandra, were born in Switzerland and moved to Canada in 1990. Kläsi is our maiden name and we are happy to use it for our bakery. The anglicized version of Kläsi is Klaesi.

361 Isabella St. is Pembroke's Bakery

In 2005, we purchased Beck's Bakery and since then have consistently put our skills and creativity to work.

A photo of W. McGaughey's 1883 bakery at 361 Isabella St. Kläsis European Bakery and Café Ltd. follows a long line of bakeries at 361 Isabella Street. The building has been in use as a bakery since at least 1883, when it was W. McGaughey's. It briefly changed to a TV repair shop, and later to The Black Forest Café, before becoming Beck's Bakery.
