Have a heart? Give a heart!

Treat your sweetie. We bake and you make your way into their heart! Nothing says Happy Valentine's Day like delicious sweet baking. We have everything from cakes to squares and of course our many popular cookies.

Valentine's Day has many colourful origins, and as many stories. For some it expressed anticipation of the coming spring. An old English belief held that birds chose their mates on February 14th. At least two saints were named Valentine. Roman Emperor Claudius II, (200 A.D.) forbade soldiers to marry, but a priest named Valentine secretly married young couples against the orders of the emperor. What is certain is that St.Valentine’s Day was officially declared in 496 A.D. and has been celebrated ever since.

This year, celebrate Valentine’s Day with Random Acts of Kindness...

  • Cook for a friend 
  • Wash someone’s dishes
  • Reach out to somebody you've had differences with
  • and, of course, buy Tall Grass & Grass Roots treats, such as...

Red River Hearts

A heart shaped cookie filled with a delectable glaze made from our own local raspberry and wild cranberry blend. A visual and sensory delight.

Mocha Kisses

A decadent rich Valentine’s treat with butter, chocolate, coffee and, yes, sugar.

Come in to place your orders in person at any of our locations or simply call us. Then you can cross one more thing off your to-do list, and ensure that you’ll have your favourite treats in time for the date.
