A familiar favourite to locals, but perhaps a lesser known hidden gem for those who aren't from around here, an adorable little bakery that serves delicious baked goods and heart-warming coffee in a space that feels like you're grandma's house.
Located in the neighbourhood of South Main is the adorable Liberty Bakery, owned by artists, Scott Livingstone, Shannon Oksanen and Rodney Graham. As soon as you walk through the doors, the inviting smell of coffee, spiced cinnamon rolls, and sugar cookies travel up your nose and you feel as if you've walked into a memory from your childhood.
The space itself has a refreshing yet rustic and cozy touch that you can sit and chat with your close friends about sweet nothings until it closes. With bright, open windows and portraits of unfamiliar, yet welcoming faces hung on white-painted wooden walls, there's something ever so charming and delightful about this bakery.
Their menu is a homey combination of baked goods, breakfast and lunch items with a touch of Nordic inspiration. They are especially known for their pulla, a traditional Finnish cardamom loaf, and their unbearable cute Totoro cookies, so cute you hardly have the heart to eat.
And you can't have a good bakery without good coffee. Serving one of Vancouver's favourites, Matchstick Coffee, Liberty Bakery makes sure that you have cup of quality to wash down a delicious treat of equal quality.
If you're looking for a warm and cozy space to sip on coffee and tea, do some studying, meet up an old friend, or just relax and treat yourself to a sweet treat, you will find your solace at Liberty Bakery. Liberty Bakery is located at 3699 Main St, and is open Monday to Friday 8AM - 6PM, Saturday and Sunday 9AM - 6PM.
