Small Business of the Month

Our business spotlight for June is Ellen’s Bakery and Cafe in Sylvan Lake. The detail and passion Chef Ellen and her staff dedicate to the cafe has made them a mainstay of the community. It is my honor to showcase this hard working business. I wish them the best and continued success.

Small businesses are the heart of our communities, and the dedicated people who operate them deserve their hard work and contributions to be acknowledged.
