Located in the Wesbrook Village neighborhood close to the UBC campus is a star studded bakery café that is full of unique delectable treats. I have visited a couple of times since Rose Concepcion and her partner Thuy Kelp opened their popular bakeshop. This is a sweet spot filled with baked goods will all sorts of names and with that comes so many stories.
Double Chocolate Ranger Cookie
Annie Oakley cookie
Lemon almond shortbread
On my first visit I enjoyed some of their baked goods treats, the Double Chocolate Ranger Cookie, the Annie Oakley cookie and the Lemon almond shortbread.
Lunar Coconut Puff.
On the next visit, I was in for lunch having a delicious Tuna Sandwich a Mediterranean inspired mix of tuna, aioli, veggies, and preserved lemon on organic Pioneer Grain Bread, served with spinach salad, along with an Espresso Macchiato and a Lunar Coconut Puff. In addition to their sandwiches, salads, baked goods which include red velvet cupcakes, organic almond croissants, hello Dolly’s, Danishes, cookies and more; they also offer a selection of house baked breads.
Turkey Pot Pie
Additionally they offer a selection of entrée dishes which are frozen to take and bake at home, which is what I did tasting a multitude of selections, my favourites were the Turkey Pot Pie made with Rossdown Farms free-range turkey and veggies simmered in a veloute sauce and encased in a flaky pie crust; along with the Butternut Mac ‘n Cheese made with a Four cheese macaroni studded with roasted butternut squash; and the King Ranch Casserole of layered tortilla, Rossdown Farms chicken and green chilli-cheese casserole which was delicious.
You will find a pastry case filled with treats that change by the season for your indulgence, as well as a full espresso beverage line-up and other beverages.
