Our Story

Your baker says “Hi!”

Tidbit Cookies is operated by its founders Shawn and Arthur.

At Daenerys’ Dragonstone (Gaztelugatxe, País Vasco)

We are professional, passionate, reliable and personable. Together we have a rich background that includes baking, business development, marketing, and customer service. When we do not work, we go hiking, snorkeling, or skiing. We enjoy the company of cats, watching sci-fi series, and discovering new places.

Canada Coffee Alicante

Our first establishment was Canada Coffee (a.k.a. Canada Cupcake Café) which launched in 2013 in sunny Alicante, Spain. The goal was to introduce an authentic taste of Canada abroad, while trying to minimize our environmental impact using exclusively eco-packaging.

At our peak we offered 65 types of cupcakes, 25 types of cookies, personalized cakes, ice cream, and much more. Paired with the bakery, we offered specialty coffee, organic tea, natural fruit juices, smoothies, blended drinks, etc. Our multipurpose space was used to host local artist exhibitions, a book exchange, language exchange, and other events.

Tidbit Madrid

In 2019 we moved our establishment to Madrid, re-branded as Tidbit. It operated mostly as a take-away bake shop and café. We were Madrid’s first specialty vegan cookie shop. Our drinks menu had several plant-based types of milk. We continued with our line of single origin coffee in eco-friendly cups. Tidbit also offered local deliveries in Madrid.

Not long after we launched, Spain’s economy collapsed due to the pandemic, and sadly we had to shut down.

The saga continues

We are now baking in Calgary, working hard to nourish Tidbit in its renewed iteration. At this point we are exclusively an online bake shop. With your support we would love to open a store front soon, and welcome you in person!
