Vancouver, BC — In 1999 Sergio Salamonovitz, a well-known local pastry chef, opened Absolute Sugar commercial bakery in East Vancouver. He wanted to share his incredible baked delicacies with a wider audience and opened French-inspired Trafiq Cafe & Bakery in West Vancouver in 2005. The location was so successful that Sergio opened a second Trafiq Cafe & Bakery on Main Street six months ago that has quickly become a neighbourhood favourite. Absolute Sugar still produces all of the fresh bread and delicious pastries for both locations. Sergio is pleased to announce that Absolute Sugar will be moving its entire operation into the new Trafiq Cafe & Bakery at 4216 Main Street. The new location on Main represents the culmination of Sergioʼs work in the industry. It brings together his talented team of pastry, cake and bread bakers under one roof in a stylish commercial kitchen and a chic, comfortable cafe.
Trafiq Cafe & Bakery offers a broad selection of freshly made baked goods and light cafe specialties. The French-inspired patisserie fare features both classic selections and innovative creations. Rustic, naturally leavened breads such as light rye, fruit and nut blends, and Campagne loaves are offered fresh from the oven each morning at 9am. Absolute Sugar has established a reputation for baking beautiful and sumptuous cakes and Trafiq Cafe & Bakery will continue this tradition in-house. The talented duet of ʻcake ladiesʼ are steadily filling orders and stocking trays with attractive cakes and tantalizing desserts. The busy bakery is a lively backdrop to the modern cafe, pleasantly buzzing with SOMA locals and shoppers. A variety of savoury sandwiches, delicious house-made soups, quiche and fresh salads are available any time of day. Freshly roasted small-batch organic coffee is brought in weekly from local roaster Los Beans Trading Co. Fresh juices and a short list of wine and beer are available to round out the offerings of this contemporary cafe.
Trafiq Cafe & Bakery offers free Wi-fi to all guests and is available for private functions: www.trafiq.ca.
