A fan-favourite bakery just opened its second location in Vancouver, and we have no doubt it’ll generate line-ups out the door—especially during peak hours.
Whistler’s Purebread made its debut in Mount Pleasant (5 East 5th Avenue) today, bringing its mouthwatering roster of specialty breads, baked goods, and savoury items to the neighbourhood.
The interior of the newly opened spot is similar to its sister establishments in Gastown (159 West Hastings Street) and Whistler (122–4338 Main Street): homey and comfortable, accented with vintage décor, wooden beams, and tiled flooring.
So, what can you find behind the glass divider on the counter that every customer peers over?
A selection of house-baked breads, such as hazelnut fig, sour cherry chocolate, rustic baguettes, walnut raisin, olive rosemary, ciabatta, and cheddar jalapeno, among others. Breakfast items include bacon and egg brioche, almond croissants, lemon-blueberry-basil scones, fruit pastries, and more.
Purebread’s sweets menu changes daily, but expect to drool over chocolate cakes, flourless brownies, raspberry cheesecake, lemon loaves, meringues, macaroons, cookies, salted caramel bars, carrot whoopie cookies, sugar buns, and countless others.
This new brick-and-mortar location is situated in an industrial space with many office workers, which means the bakery will be serving up more lunch items and savoury creations.
The 5,000-square-foot space also works as a production kitchen, allowing its Whistler team to forego the delivery trek every morning.
