      The Vancouver location of Golestan Bakery, a Persian-French bakeshop that started on the North Shore, is on the market.

      The listing for the 1755 Robson Street shop puts the price at $158,000.

      Golestan Bakery offers Persian and French pastries, cookies, and cakes.

      The first Golestan Bakery opened in North Vancouver. It has another location in West Vancouver.

      A report last month by CBC recalled that owner Jalal "Jay" Darvishi started the business in the central Lonsdale area of North Vancouver in 1997.

      According to the report, Golestan means ‘flower garden’ in Persian.

      Darvishi chose the name to reflect the cultural diversity of North Vancouver, CBC reported.

      The listing by the Restaurant Business Broker agency for the 1755 Robson Street location notes that the lease at the site extends until June 2024.

      The lease includes a no demolition clause.

      The sale includes all equipment, which are “practically brand new”.
