Vancouver boasts a number of well-loved specialty bakeries and treat shops, including those that focus on things like French macarons, gluten-free goodies, or vegan treats. Soon, though, the city will have a new café and bakeshop that specializes in strudel.
Strudel is the German baked good made with flaky layers of buttery pastry wrapped around a fruit filling. In Vancouver, you can find it among the offerings at popular places like Breka, Purebread, or Swiss Bakery, as well as those that specialize in Eastern European fare, like Kozak, a Ukrainian bakery and cafe.
This fall, Honeybrew Strudel Bar is set to launch in downtown Vancouver. The new venture is setting up at 785 Davie Street, in the space that was previously home to a cafe outpost of Truffles, the catering company that operates three remaining spaces, including at Van Dusen Botanical Garden.
Details about Honeybrew are scant, save that they promise "world class strudels" according to their social media.
The restaurant-to-be also promises "fresh pastries, small plates, beverages, and cozy vibes under one roof. Featuring a rustic modern environment perfect for social meet-ups and small groups," per their Facebook page.
Stay tuned, as opening approaches. We'll update when more info becomes available - and hopefully some tempting photos of their strudels and pastries, too.
