Balfours boasts a rich history dating back to 1853 when Scottish immigrants James Calder and his wife Margaret Balfour established the first bakery on Rundle Street in Adelaide. 

In 2004, the bakery became a popular brand and famous for its iconic green, pink, and brown frog cakes.

Financial difficulties in the early 2000s led to the closure of its cafes and the sale of the company to San Remo in 2008.
