Bakery in Van - who is doing it RIGHT?

LocalBread | Jan 22, 2012 08:12 PM

We're two Canadian former expats with business backgrounds who just bought an old fashioned bakery in our new adopted home in small town Alberta.

We're all about benchmarking the best. We'd like to transition away from 'bakery as dessert' to 'bakery as AWESOME foundation for good food" ie french bread banh mi subs, sourdoughs, lebanese lahma jin meat pies, montreal style wood fired bagels, nan and curry, etc. We spent our 20s and early 30s travelling (on breaks from teaching ESL in Korea) and eating and want to share.

In your opinion, who are the BEST bakeries in Van? We're in town for a wedding the weekend of Feb 25th, and staying downtown. Would love recommendations of places to compare.

Thanks food folks!
