Bigsby the Bakehouse-Fabulous Bread!
- Sam Salmon Apr 1, 2013 07:14 AM
Cycled up to Arbutus Ridge/McKenzie Heights on the weekend following rumours of huge delicious loaves of bread and found a motherlode-Bigsby has some outstanding products!
The large white loaf I bought was still warm from the oven and proved to be the best bread I've eaten this year just scrumptious.
Classic bakery/cafe setup with great service-it's kind of a shame it's in such an obscure location @ 33rd & MacKenzie-if you're at all motivated it's well worth checking out.
Great tip, Sam !
Looking at their website, Earl Morris look very familiar but I couldn't put a finger on it, until I read the article and it turns out he was the owner of Red Onion (and doesn't look stressed as he did while at the RO). Good for them, I wish them all the success.
Maybe eventually they'll add burgers to their menu ;-)
Did they set up in the old Tinker's Hatch space?
NM - see greyelf answered that already. Nice. Agree about the Eccles cakes - they were a fave snack when I worked nearby a couple of decades ago.
...just looked at some product pix on their facebook - and wow - i'd sure like to try that poppyseed lemon cake - with thinly sliced meyer lemon IN the cake - did your bike ride have room for that SSalmon? (trouble is - i don't have my partner's hollow legs from biking - the cals stick to me)
