A Bread Affair is a family-owned business that has been specializing in baking handmade artisan breads since 2005. They recently opened this flagship bakery on Granville Island to service a growing clientele as well as to supply island businesses with all their breads needs. They are all about community and being able to work with their local community by supplying that community with great breads works well with their beliefs.
Their main bakery is situated in Langley, B.C. where the city meets the country. This location allows A Bread Affair to remain a part of the fabric of our rich agricultural community; able to know the producers and growers on a first name basis yet close to Vancouver and able to service the demands of artisan bread lovers in the lower mainland. Whether you know them from the bakery, your local farmer’s market or any of the fine restaurants or retailers that use or sell their products, rest assured that you are enjoying a world-class product, handcrafted by skilled artisan bakers using only time-honoured methods, natural ingredients, and traditional stone hearth ovens.
A Bread Affair is a love of baking, a love of fabulous taste, of organic and natural ingredients and of methods that have stood the test of time. Featuring the 100-Mile Loaf and amazing varieties like Cranberry Semolina or Whole Wheat Sourdough, there’s something for everyone.
They offer quite an interesting selection of organic breads, such as Soulmate, First Date as well as the French Kiss and the Naked. The Granville Island bakery also bakes a variety of goodies such as Sticky Cinnamon Buns, Scones, Croissants along with a range of desserts.
Soon visitors will be able to watch them mill their own flour from the outside windows, this should prove to be a popular attraction for both tourists and locals alike.
