Advice: Milk and Creme is on tap for coffee service. Stools by the counter are fixed to the floor.
Large and spacious, this wooden floored, white walled bakery is shining bright in Yaletown. Qasim Nathoo is the creator and driving force behind this 26 seat stunning bakery café which is decorated throughout with white marble counter and table tops. Qasim is not only passionate about what he has created, he is also a perfectionist who cares about the quality of the ingredients that goes into his baking and what’s served in the café.
I have been in a couple of times since opening, had my go to coffee beverage which is an Espresso Macchiato and a slice of their Banana Chocolate Bread. Featured in their espresso beverage line-up as well as their pour overs are Phil & Sebastian and Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters, as well you will find many coffees from notable roasters across North America. The bakery offerings include country style artisan breads, croissants, muffins, banana bread and cookies.
One of the artisan loaves that I have already enjoyed is the Honey Wheat, they have a beautiful state of the art oven, watch them as they craft their loaves daily. Eat-in or Take-out, you will find a line-up of sandwiches along with a decadent array of desserts, this is a spot you are going to want to visit time and time again.
