I decided to take a walk down to Uprising Breads this morning to pick up my son’s favorite whole wheat raisin bread; I’m sad to report that they have closed their Kitsilano location, almost two and a half years after opening. I will really miss this bakery, mostly for their child friendly space, great seasonal products and friendly staff.
Nonetheless, their caramel pecan shortbread will still warrant the trip to their East Van location which will remain open at 1697 Venables St.
