Best of Vancouver: Baked Goods

Baked goods are a simple pleasure that I really enjoy. But there are few things that give me more joy than biting into a warm, soft cookie with melting chocolate chunks, the soft crispy exterior of a fresh pastry or croissant, or even just cutting through the crust of a good loaf of artisan bread. Author Neil Pasricha put the "smell of bakery air" in his Book of Awesome for a truly is awesome.
Here is a carb-o-licious list of me and my peeps favourite places to get bread and baked goods. Let me know if you have any awesome bakery suggestions that I've missed.

Best Baked Goods:

Capers/Whole Foods Bakery MM- carrot cake, power cookies, muffins, pretty much everything….

Thomas Haas MM-double baked almond croissants

Butter Bakery MM- peanut butter homemade oreo, homemade oreo

Fratelli Bakery MM- Linda’s go-to stop before every pot luck dinner (St Honore Cake and lemon squares)

Westlynn Bakery MM- Tricia’s loves their bagels, pizza shells, chicken pot pie - and more!

Grounds for Coffee MM- Cinnamon Buns

Honey’s Donuts MM

Uprising Breads   

Savary Island Pie Company Tina works in West Van and is obsessed with their baked goodies

Crème de la Crumb

Terra Breads MM- I work near this bakery now and love it. Their goodies are great and even their basic sesame seed buns can elevate a sandwich to a new level of greatness.

Honeys donuts are ridiculously good - and those Oreo cookies from Butter - oh man. And you must have Capers lemon tart if you haven't!!
