When I started my business in 2011, I never thought I would have my own bakery. It always seemed to be a goal just beyond my grasp, so I can’t believe that it has finally come to fruition. The space on Nanaimo St. became available earlier this year and we decided to take the leap (renovations did not seem as daunting as it previously operated as a bakery).
Our microbakery in East Vancouver on 1211 Nanaimo St. is open year-round for our customers who are addicted to our shortbread cookies. We also offer a variety of pies and cheesecakes along other baked goods such as drop cookies and biscuits. I like to think of our desserts as what you’d make at home – we only use natural ingredients such as organic flour, fresh butter, real whipped cream and whole eggs (and as little sugar as possible). Our products are scratch-baked and should be enjoyed within a day or two of purchase. We don’t use any stabilizers or artificial ingredients in our baking, which is common in most bakeries that make things in large volume and freeze what they cannot sell right away. Pie crusts are hand rolled, and cheesecakes all use our signature shortbread for the crust. We also use locally sourced fruit whenever possible.
Come on by to grab some dessert on the way home from work, or stop in for a slice of pie and fresh coffee. We offer coffee from Galileo Coffee roasters and loose leaf tea from Karla’s Specialteas and Trudy Ann’s Chai. You can always order whole pie or cheesecake too for dinner or special occasions (48 hour pre-order for your favorite, or 24 hour pre-order for pies and cheesecakes on our weekly menu). Please contact us directly for availability.
