Near the corner of West 4th and Alma on Vancouver's west-side resides a fantastic bakery/coffee house. Right near a bus stop it's busy, but a bit of a relaxing oasis too.
Stylishly appointed this bakery is one of Vancouver's best; the croissants are indeed exceptional. The bread is always fresh, which makes Beyond Bread's take on sandwiches difficult to resist.
Service is usually friendly and efficient, but on a few occasions we've noticed a wee irritation on the part of counter staff. However, that might be due to all kinds of things and most of the time all is fine in every way.
Beyond Bread is a wonderful stop on the way to the beach!
