Nothing cures our craving for scones as much as a visit to Purebread. Walking into this bakery located on Hastings Street is a bit overwhelming with the sheer variety of items that they have.

Créme de la Crumb Bakeshop (Clark Drive) – Mayan Hot Chocolate

Créme de la Crumb is a growing chain of bakery shops that serves up tasty pastries as well as deli items. The location on Clark Drive is nestled in the middle of a semi-industrial area and, aside from the dark counter area, actually seems pretty bright and spacious.

900 West Lounge – White Monkey Paw
