Breka Opening Downtown?

Flying by the intersection of Davie & Hornby on my bicycle earlier in the week I swear I saw a sign for Breka opening up on the NE corner where the old Bread Garden was.

Anyone spotted this?

  1. Apparently it's been open for a bit -- I called in Dec to see if they were going to be stocking the bee sting cake which is Breka's topnote IMO. And they are. Haven't tried it from there yet though.

    1. There's a Breka on Bute just south of Robson too. Also a former Bread Garden location. Open 24 hours I believe.

        OK-Thanks for that there are two-or are going to be two downtown-the one I saw still had the windows papered.

        Their website makes reference to 'our bakeries' but the link is dead.

          Oops maybe it was the Bute one I called. Sorry about that!

            Yes I just went by the one on Hornby this morning on the bus and the windows are still papered.

          1. Their red velvet cake is quite good !

            I've always wondered if there are others in Metro who makes as good (and cheap) of a bienenstich as Breka.

            Now that all three locations are open 24/7, somehow it reminds me of the "old" Bread Garden (not its current iteration as BG Urban Cafe). How my wife (my GF at the time) and I spent many moons at their original W.1st location in the wee hours, chatting. If not at Sweet Confections on Alma. Or The Fresgo Inn on Davie ......
