One late night during my trip, I was craving chocolate cakes. I know, it’s strange, but that’s just what happens when you live around 24-hour grocery stores! It was late, and I was glad to find Breka Bakery & Café. They’re open 24/7! The small bakery had a huge selection of cakes and pastries. I couldn’t help but order more than what I craved for, but hey – I was on vacation.  

One of the random things I ordered was the bocconcini and baby tomato panini. It was a nice vegetarian sandwich with pesto, olives, tomato, and lots of melting bocconcini cheese. Definitely not what I had a craving for, but I was very happy to have ordered it.  

The German chocolate cake was a super rich, dense, and chocolatey cake. It was everything I was craving for with bonus coconut fillings. It was one awesome cake. I will have dreams about this cake. 

Other pastries I picked up were the lemon bar, and butter pecan bar. The lemon bar was light, fluffy, and not overly sour. The pecan bar was sweet and sticky. The little cafe has so much more pastry selections that I’d like to try, most of them are European pastries. Now I know where to go when I have a weird cake craving at 11pm in Vancouver.
