If you’re looking for a space to perch yourself for a few hours then look no further than Small Victory – a gorgeous cafe-bakery in Gastown and one of our favourite hangouts for laptop club. There’s a huge range of croissants, cakes and cheesecakes to keep you satisfied while you’re at work.

For classic baked goods you really can’t go past the charming Beacoup Bakery, a small cafe that is so popular you’ll only ever get select from freshly baked goodness (the hard part is narrowing down your options!)
Address: 2150 Fir Street
Tartine Breads and Pies
For a (very) traditional style bakery, head on over to Tartine bread and pies. This is the kinda joint you can count on for more savoury/lunch options if that’s more your thing.
Address: 770 Beach Avenue
Butter Baked Goods
Leave your food intolerances at the door – this bakeries’ specialty is all in the name: butter. For decadent baked goodies and a choice of full size cakes, you can’t go past this beauty.

A Bread Affair
If you find yourself over on Granville Island looking for an afternoon pick-me-up, then look no further than A Bread Affair. I couldn’t notice any vegan or GF options upon my visit, but the smell and traditional interior alone were worth a peak inside.

Vegan and wanna know where to get the best vegan baked goods in Vancouver?
I got you covered!
Over in Kitsilano where lululemon and pressed juice reign supreme you will find TurF, the neighbourhood hangout for milliennial gym goers sipping on a smoothie post-workout. There are a few vegan baked goodies in the pastry case, including vegan cookies, bliss balls and banana bread. The smoothies are also a treat and the menu is packed with vegan options.
2041 W 4th Ave, Kitsilano, Vancouver
Much less a bakery and more of a grocer-come-cafe, I was pleasantly surprised to find a huge range of vegan baked goods inside Be Fresh. We’re talking cookies, banana bread and even pastries. Try the “to die for” vegan banana bread and prepare for an in-mouth explosion of YES!
