The bakery had been around for years, but grew out of its tiny building.
After renovating the old O'Leary liquor store, the group moved in earlier this year and added the café.
Egmont MP Bobby Morrissey and provincial Health Minister Rob Henderson were on hand for the official opening.
Funding for the new building came from the federal government, the province, and the organization.
