Get to know what Bolo is all about!
Hey There!! I’m Lisa—Mama to Tove / Baker / The Black Elf and a Newly Minted Barista!
Welcome to Bolo…where all of your sweet dreams can come true!
You must be here because you’d like to know what Bolo is all about and maybe how I got started baking up all of these delicious treats.
Well, I’ve been baking for years! It runs in the family (my grandma had a bakery, too)! But Bolo isn’t your (or my) Grandmother’s bakery. Cakes, Cronuts, CheeseWheels, Fat Tuesdays and Inny Cheeseburgers…these are just a few of Bolo’s cult favourites.
Bolo gives me so much happiness. I belong here and I love baking for you. I love seeing people biting into their first Bolo treats. When you step into Bolo I want you to feel the most joy possible as well.
Bolo has been open since March 2018. I left my corporate IT job downtown to realize this dream. It was so, so scary but I have learned in my short time on this planet that risking everything for joy is my only course of action.
Calgary has been so good and generous to Bolo. As a native Calgarian, my hope is to become and remain a landmark in the old YYC and do this beautiful city proud.
All of the familiar faces that keep coming back are a sign that we are doing what we set out to do…which was to deliver bliss in the form of tasty cakes, bites, coffee and the best customer service possible.
I want you to feel the love in every bite of your kid’s birthday cake and turn you into a morning person with a fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon bun.
I want to take you back to the best part of childhood with Nanaimo bars (we call them Calgary Bars), Marshmallow Magic Bars and Bolo Birthday Cake Cookies and turn bad days around with Homemade Sandwiches (made on our fresh bread) and Pecan Tarts.
I’d have to say that at Bolo I get to do some of the best work I’ve ever done And I thank you for allowing me to do it.
Thank you for being a part of the Bolo community. Thank you for allowing Bolo to love on you!
Come by and have a piece a cake with me!
