From CBC - September 14, 2017

Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet was at the Toronto International Film Festival to talk about her latest film, but her mind was definitely back in B.C.

"I pine for Honey's Doughnuts in Deep Cove,"shesaid.

The little bakery in North Vancouver has quite the following, especially among the many celebrities who stay in the area while filming.

The owners were taken by surprise by Winslet'sbacking.

"We did not expect an endorsement like that, but she's such a nice person," saidAshakSaferali, who has been running Honey's in Deep Cove for 22 years along with his wife,Ashifa.

Saferalisaid Winsletcamein a few times with her familyand tried a variety of items.

Other stars like Jennifer Lopez, BenAffleck, Jennifer Garner andRyan Goslinghave also dropped in, butSaferalisays Honey's tries not to make a big deal about it.

"We want to respect their privacy because they areconstantlybombarded by people. So we want to give them their breathing space," he said.

Instead, they rely on word of mouth and the tastiness of the "grandma's baking" style.
