Earlier this year, I went in to the Commercial Drive location and ordered 3 different flavoured cakes in 3 different sizes, as I had purchased a tiered stand to put them on for my parents anniversary party. I was very clear and specific about the size of cakes and flavors. The person who wrote down my order seemed to be... More

The Saint Honore is one of the best around - always fresh and delicious! The Italian breads are traditionally made, just like Italy - cornetti, mantovani, filoni.... death by bread! Many other tasty cakes and treats to enjoy :)

Stopped here for a couple pastries, and they were so good. Had the chese croissant, the chocolate croissant, and a cinnamon bun. Together with a couple of lattes, and we were set! There was so much to choose from, though! Yum!

I love their pastries and cakes. There are about 6 different types of cannolis, puff pastries, assortment of 21 cakes, and many other delicious desserts. Some of my favourite cakes are: St Honore, Black Forest, and Fresh Fruit - pre-order your cake if possible, so you're not disappointed. Marco can make a custom cake if you need it for a... More

We only tried the cookies here but they were amazing. We walked by it so many times and every time they had an amazing offering of fresh treats and lots of other options. Great cookies!

Try the cannoli... Just the plain, straight up classic. We went into the city and my husband was craving cannoli. We searched all over downtown Vancouver and finally someone suggested we get over to Fratelli's to try theirs! I'm so glad we made it 10 minutes to close and got to try one (ok, we had 3)... It was so... More

Family-owned Fratelli’s Bakery on Commercial Drive has the most amazing pastries. At our office, every time someone is celebrating their birthday, we order our cakes from there. The Lemon Cake is probably my favourite. Best to order ahead of time if want cakes, but they will have some ready to order off the counter. It’s a little more expensive than... More

I only tried the chocolate eclair and the hazelnut eclair. So thick and heavy you could break a window with them. Great service and prices too.

We went to Fratelli Bakery for awesome treats, this bakery is the best of all bakeries in our opinion. We have enjoyed Marco's baked goods for 15 years.

I have been a long time customer of Fratelli's but have never written a review. My apologies to Marco and his family. I come here for their breads, muffins, pastries and cakes. I'm never disappointed. Just last Saturday morning, I picked up an orange cranberry muffin (my favourite) in the New West store on the way to an appointment and... More

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighborhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
