Westside Bakery for Bread? (Vancouver)
My beloved Dollenkamp's (Broadway + Macdonald) has closed. Grieving aside, what's the best place for a good loaf of reasonably priced bread on the west side? Cobbs and Terra are a little pricy for my UBC budget, but is there anywhere else?
Mix is awesome. However, they're up in the Terra price range. The loaves are a bit bigger, but I've been a fan of theirs for a number of years.
Cobs is actually pretty cheap if you ask me, essentially at the price point of the major grocery store brands. The extra couple of bucks gets you a much better loaf.
There actually is a place called Westside Bakery on McDonald near 23rd AVE 604-738-4228 . As I recall their bread is about $2+- depending on the type but I would not say it is the artisan category. Maybe call ahead and see if the pricing works.
Try the Angus Bakery on Broadway, between Alma and Dunbar. This is a very friendly little place, run by an Asian couple who named the business after their son. They make great croissants, and really, really good cheese croissants - best in Vancouver. Also lots of good pastries and breads.
