In 1874, C.L. Baker constructed the elegant three-storey building on the northeast corner of Kent and Cambridge streets where he opened the well-known and well-regarded C.L. Baker Store - a produce business that serviced the entire region.
The building later became the home of the Baker Business College which trained young women for office and secretarial work and eventually became the home to the National Bank and then the Royal Bank.
The Baker block is now home to Boiling Over's Coffee Vault, an upscale coffee house whose mission is to bring an exceptional coffee experience to the City of Kawartha Lakes!
Whether you're stopping in quickly to grab a coffee on the run, meeting up with friends or attending one of their regularly scheduled events Boiling Over is the place to meet!
If you go inside you'll notice the vault doors from the building's years as a bank!
