Five minutes inside Purebread and you’ll realize – bread makes people happy. And here, it’s not just bread. It’s a counter piled high with brownies, cookies, scones, cakes, and meringues bigger than your head. It’s a handmade, all-natural, fresh-baked heaven in Gastown and you’ve got to experience it.
Purebread is perfect for:
Sweet and savoury bites with a cup of Stumptown coffee. A kick-start to the morning or a great pick-me-up in the late afternoon. If nothing else, you can sip coffee, use the wifi, and revel in the scent of fresh baking!
You might just meet:
Tech-types from the neighbourhood grabbing breakfast on-the-go. Gastown boutique owners catching up over coffee in the afternoon.
The sweet spot:
Purebread Gastown opens at 8:30am and closes at 5:30pm, daily. For the ultimate selection of breakfast goodies, arrive before 10:00am.
We haven’t had anything we didn’t like at Purebread. Never ever. Our all-time favourites include the chocolate cherry cookie, the bacon egg muffin, the OMG (chocolate brownie), the granola…
The back story:
Mark and Paula Lamming of Whistler, BC were inspired to “make good bread” after realizing a lack of options in the small mountain town. At their first farmers market, they were tremendously well-received by the community. With bakeries in Whistler, Squamish and Vancouver, the family-run business remains passionate about people, family and quality baking!
