Where you can get Vancouvers version of the Cronut

Splurge on a Croissant -Fritter hybrid. Flaky heaven. But if you don't visit early enough in the day they often sell out. I also love their pretzels, pretzel buns, and breads.

We were driving by and Dr. H asked me to go around the block and stop at the bakery that he had just spied. We had just finished a birthday lunch for second son at "Call Luigi" ( see the review ) but the bakery beckoned. What a surprise. I ordered a bag of plain and chocolate croissants, Danish pastries,... More

Waiting for my car to be washed a half block away... soooo popped in for a quick bite! I had a grilled cheese sandwich and shared two pastries with a friend. The butter tart and this filo pastry lemon concoction resembling a volcano :D Both good but very rich and too sweet for my taste buds BUT every thing in... More

I have only tried the Cronuts. The Cronuts are delicious, but only something I would eat maybe once in a blue moon. It is probably 1000 kcal.

I stopped in while waiting for a scooter rental nearby. Enjoyed a Spinach Salad, an spinach roll, and something with chicken and Indian style vegetables and rice in a thin tort shell. Regular customers kept coming in as this seems to be a well liked establishment by the locals. Would go again.

We ended up eating here after doing a quick Trip Advisor search in the middle of Science World. We were needing a place to eat to wait for the younger children to leave the museum, but didn't want to eat at McDonalds which was very close and very visible. We decided that delayed gratification of a 9 minute walk was... More

Whether you have or haven't jumped on this summer's Cronut bandwagon, up north its called a Frissant : a fried croissant as opposed to a croissant donut. The Swiss Bakery is certainly one of the best place to try one in western Canada (in eastern Canada try La Cornetteria in Montreal's little Italy where its called a cornetti). Located away... More

Stumbled into this fabulous bakery by fluke. Wide variety of sandwich choices on weekdays, but on weekends are forced to eat pre-packaged - best prepackaged sandwich ever! Absolutely sensational bread, fantastic coffees, wide variety of pastery choices, exception service, very reasonable prices. Can't wait to go back today.

They make sandwiches with PRETZEL BREAD. Best sandwiches for take-out, and delicious dessert pastries.
