Ben and I went to the Buns Master Bakery & Delicatessen on No. 6 Road on a Saturday morning to get something for breakfast.
The lady who serves us told us that this bakery has almost 40 years of history. This location serves the surrounding industrial area. It is very busy during week day.
This is the groceries area where you can get bread, muffins, sweet treats, bagel, etc.
Here is the deli section where you can select the ingredients for your sandwich. Continue reading
Ben brought home a Bieninstitch from Breka Bakery & Cafe one day.
It was a huge cake.
Bienistich is a German dessert. It is made of sweet yeast dough with a baked on topping of caramelized almonds. This is filled with a cream.
This is a rare occasion where Ben and I went to a bakery cafe. Our initial plan was to have coffee at McDonalds in Steveston Village before our morning walk. We were not aware that the McDonalds there had closed. So, we went to Steveston Bakery.
We had the small coffee which allows one free refill. It is strange that the large coffee does not have the free refill.
Ben had the Pizza Bagel with Ham while I had an Almond Croissant. Ben likes savory food even for breakfast except for “kaya toast” that he enjoys at home.
Credit card is accepted here. Continue reading
Arkensen is attending the Dota International tournament again this year. So, we have to drive him to Seattle for the 6 days event.
We intended to gas up at Costco in Burlington but then we saw Panera Bread just nearby. So, we decided to have breakfast before going to Costco.
The ordering counter.
It was a quiet morning; just us and a few more customers. The dining area was quite big.
Self service coffee and tea station for brewed coffee.
Nanzaro ordered a mocha which was delivered to our table. The rest of us just have brewed coffee.
Nanzaro had a chocolate pastry. Continue reading
After lunch at Benss Cafe, we walked along Victoria Dr. a bit to help digestion. Ben likes to walk after a meal. Not so much for the boys.
We stopped by Mei Yee Bakery to buy some stuff for breakfast and snacks.
Ben wanted the Chicken steam buns which comes in 4 in a bag.
The bun does not look big when we bought it, but when we had it for breakfast the next morning, it felt bigger than it look. It is filled with chicken, ham, salted egg yolk and some crunchy daikon (I think). Continue reading
It’s been a while since Polly and I met up for breakfast. She managed to find some time on a Friday morning to meet up with before she goes to work.
We had breakfast at Steveston Bakery. We like the small coffee shops and stores in the Steveston Village. Polly ordered the breakfast special burito as she was really hungry this morning. It was freshly made with scrambled egg, cheese and some crispy bacon. A hearty breakfast for $3.95.
We also shared some sweet treats. Almond Chocolate Croissant is $2.40. This has a creamy almond filings. Continue reading
Whitney dropped by place to pick up some stuff. She is so sweet to bring me some baked goods.
Can you guess where are these goodies from? Continue reading
Polly and I had cake meet at Pane e Fromaggio for another lady’s day out.
I had a hard time trying to recover the photos taken since 31st May as my notebook’s hard disk is dying. I had been painstakingly and patiently copying out my pictures from my dying notebook. I’m currently using a notebook on loan, so there will be no photoshopping for the pictures, i.e. I cannot place the chowtimes logo on my photos.
Pane e Fromaggio is a nice little cafe, not many seats though.
There is a good selection of sandwiches, cakes and desserts.
Here is a glance of what we had. Continue reading
Steveston Bakery is a old timer in Steveston Village. It has been around since 1989.
The sandwich board in front says that coffee is free from 5 to 6pm.
A mural covers one of the wall in the bakery.
There are baked goods from cake, muffin, pastries, cookies, bread and soup. Coffee is self service. We ordered large coffees since it’s just 20 cents extra from the regular size. But the server told us that she will charge us the regular size price since refill is free when we dine in.
We ordered four items to share. The bill came to $13+ including the coffees. Price is very reasonable here. Steveston Bakery accepts credit card. Continue reading
After our lunch at Yaohan Foodcourt, we walked past Osaka Supermarket. We just cant resist the temptations of the pastries from the window of the bakery.
We bought a few items for our next day’s breakfast. Nanzaro wanted the Pineapple Croissant. This is $1.39. The croissant itself is flaky and the pineapple custard topping adds sweetness to it.
I had the Coffee Danish with Crispy Topping; also for $1.39. Continue reading
