Uprising Breads Bakery is an East Vancouver icon with over thirty years in business. It has a reputation for good quality baked goods made at its Venables Street location that can also be purchased in retail stores throughout the Lower Mainland. The company recently opened up a second shop a few months ago in Kitsilano. We spotted the cafe/bakery one morning while driving down West Broadway and decided to pop in for a quick breakfast.
The space is divided into three sections: a roomy sitting area with tables and chairs, an area with the packaged baked goods and sliced breads and a counter area with the cases of individual pastries and desserts (bars, pies, cookies, scones, muffins, tiramisu, croissants, cupcakes. etc.), homemade soups & sandwiches, and a full espresso bar managed by expert baristas.
A generous slice of scrumptious strawberry rhubarb pie along with a coffee only cost $2.99. Actually, all their baked good prices seemed below comparable shops in the neighbourhood. Seniors get to take advantage of even lower prices with a 10% seniors discount off everything, everyday. All items we sampled were superb and staff were friendly, so this place is well worth a repeat visit. Check it out! Love Uprising products but can’t stop to shop? Get them delivered by @SPUDVancouver.
