The awesomest part about being a Cake Gumshoe? Discovering totally sweet bakeries all over the world. And, getting sweet tips on new ones to discover from customers and friends.
And here's a sweet tip from CakeSpy Shop customer Charlotte, who recently visited from Vancouver. During her visit she mentioned her love for a sweet spot called Honey, but was kind enough to update me on another favorite:
When I got home I remembered the place right around the corner from my house!! It is a Latin Bakery with some grocery products.
Family run, custard and dulce le leche as far as the eye can see, and huge portions. The apple custard slice is my usual. It could feed two..... The bakery is on Joyce St. in the Collingwood neighbourhood, steps away from the Joyce St. skytrain station.
Well, if you're going to Vancouver, consider this your official tip-off for panaderia paradise!
Panaderia Latina Bakery, 4906 Joyce Street, Vancouver BC.
