Our Story

The Boombox Bakeshop is the brain child of Alexandra Connon.

With a love for baking, passion for music, and support of family and friends The Boombox Bakeshop was born. We are a veg-friendly bakery and cafe specializing in vegan goods and gluten free vegan goods- ranging from our signature cupcakes, pop overs and mini pies to other delightful seasonal surprises.

We pride ourselves on our unique music themed decor and even have a record swap and drop for fellow music enthusiasts. You’ll never catch us without tunes playing while we are busy baking and serving up drinks and treats for the community.

We are also all about supporting local. Whether this means supporting local bands or sourcing our fresh organic produce from local farmers and distributors. Even our coffee is roasted locally and specially blended for the shop.
Drop by our location in the Old East Village at 520 Adelaide St North to taste some of our delicious seasonal cupcake flavours.


About Alexandra


A self proclaimed urban gypsy, Alexandra has moved constantly for the past 10 years and needed something to keep her anchored within a community. With a love for baking and a passion for music, the inspiration for the bakery was formed. At an early age, Alexandra was taught how to bake and cook by her late father Fred, who also had a passion for all things culinary. Over many years, Fred taught Alexandra many skills - from baking the perfect pie crust to making the perfect icing.

Alexandra’s father had always wanted to open a culinary establishment, but was sadly unable to do so. Alexandra built on her father’s dream and opened her very own bakeshop. With the love and support of her family and friends, The Boombox Bakeshop was born.
