The best bakery I have ever been to! The workers and Sam are so pleasant and nice and the product they make is even more pleasant tasty and to die for !! - Alysha
This place is what I believe and hope heaven smells like. Have been coming here since the early 90s with my parents and now still the same smiling faces. The Sicilian cannolis are probably the best in the world. You can taste the love in everything Sam’s makes. Treat yourselves!!!! - Matthew
Sam has been part of my family's traditions since I was a kid. Birthday's or holidays, his rum cake was and still is always on our list. Since I was a kid I've always loved his sprinkle rainbow cookies and I still do :p From the cannoli's (best in the city) to his venetian creams, Sam is a real Hamilton treasure and we hope he lives and works forever! Thanks Sam and the team at Sam's Queenston Bakery for all your lovely treats over the many decades! - Alexandra
I've been in here a handful of times, and I'm now becoming a more regular customer. It's not about how delicious everything is, though he makes the best Sicilian Cannolis I've ever had, it's about the man. Sam is extremely friendly and always happy when you walk in the door - and that's what brings people back! Just a really genuinely happy and nice man.
A quick story: I went in a few weeks back to pick up some desserts. I ordered and went to pay, forgetting that it is cash only. I only had a $10 and it came to $13, he said not to worry about it and to get him next time. Naturally I had to go back sooner rather than later to get more desserts and to pay him back for that. Understand that I'm not a regular customer and it had been a long time since my last visit. He just put trust that I'd come back and he got repeat business sooner because of that trust! - Alex
'The best cannolis' said several folks at Sam's today. Took my little grandchildren to meet and have their picture taken with Sam. Such a friendly welcome. Sam took time to chat and was generous with samples for the kids. Crispy and tasty inside with creamy melt in your mouth filling. And so much more there . But for us on a blustery rainy day, a long drive from home to East Hamilton for Sam's cannolis: definitely worth it! - Jerry Ann
