Mary Bradshaw started her very first bakery, Sweet & Savory Baked Goods, in rural Vermont in 1980. Since returning to Canada in 1984, she has been a fixture of the London, ON food scene. For years, Mary was the general manager of Sebastian’s gourmet markets until she opened her own business in 1998. A Couple of Squares operated as a wholesale bakery, selling intricately decorated cookies across North America until late 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the closure of A Couple of Squares and prompted Mary to start a new venture – Nightingale Pie Co. A two-woman bakeshop (Mary’s daughter assists in the pie prep), Nightingale Pie Co. bakes each and every pie from scratch – from the all-butter dough to the carefully prepared fillings. They look forward to sharing the joy of pie with their fellow Londoners!
