Amazing coffee and pastries! Definitely will be back again, the donuts are so good and so are the gluten free coconut macarons. The staff are incredible too.

Stayed for 3 nights in Vancouver and ate (well, ordered takeout) at Breka every single day! We loved everything that we ordered. Seriously.

Very tasty desserts and sandwiches at reasonable prices. I love their BOCCONCINI & PESTO BAGUETTE and Red Velvet cake. Chocolate mousse and strawberry shortcake is delicious too. I also like their Iced Green Tea Matcha Latte is great too. But what I love most is...that they're open 24 hours. (Vancouver is such a sleepy city with almost nothing open all night.)More

I love the desserts here and been working my way through their various cakes during COVID-19 era as just want to eat desserts now. My favourite is their strawberry shortcake, but I also like mango moose. The PISTACHIO, tiramisu and their German style strudel are...wonderful too! Walking downtown and west-end I pass by up to 3 locations during a walk and cannot help but stop in.More

I came here twice during the holidays for dessert. The strawberry shortcake was yummy, and the German style apple straddle with pistachio was light and tasty. Great bakery selection of baked goods and sandwiches.

Sandwiches, pastries, and coffee, sit in or outside, a few blocks from Stanley Park, near shopping streets.

"What the hell is that?" you say. It is a German style rye bread with a nutty flavor and moderately heavy texture. It is GOOD! Try it if you like rye bread. Tip: do not get them to slice it. Their slicer results in slices...that are too thick for this type of bread. Take it home and leave it in the bag for 12 hours+ and then slice it with a sharp carving or slicing (preferred) knife. You will get superior results. You can cut it with a bread knife immediately but due to the crustiness of this great loaf it makes a real mess. Sorry I cannot report on other stuff here but all I buy is the Sovital.More

Stopped here very early on a Saturday morning. Cafe Latte and Spinach-artichoke pocket were very nice and hit the spot. Place is decorated with very dark wood which makes it look a bit uninviting. But staff are very helpful and there are plenty of sweet...and savoury choices.More

Found it to be a trendy place, went once. Getting a dark roast coffee seemed to be a problem. Very limited seating and a general hassle.
