Butter tarts from The Maids' Cottage in Newmarket, Ontario

The Maid’s Cottage

The Maid’s Cottage serves up some of the best butter tarts in the GTA, and they even won the 2022 award for best butter tarts in Ontario!

We’ve tried a couple of their flavours and loved them all, but my fave is definitely the beer butter tart.

It’s made using craft beer from Old Flame Brewing Co., which is located right across the street from The Maid’s Cottage!
