Surrey’s award-winning chefs (a couple of them are TV stars as well) are pushing the flavour boundaries and creating internationally inspired baked goods that you won’t find anywhere else. Read on for some of our favourite bakeries in Surrey:
Mann & Co Bakeshop
13411 71a Ave | 604-503-1353
Chef Jujhar is a master of melding classic French baking techniques with delicious South Asian (and Western) flavours and the pastries at Mann & Co are as stunning as they are delicious. The selection is such that it is almost impossible to decide what to order … so you’re going to want to try one of everything. Pastries, cakes, cupcakes, dessert bars and stuffed cookies are just a few of the sweet treats to choose from.
Must try: Cardamom Gulab Jamun Cake Trifle, Stuffed Lotus Biscoff cookie, Hazelnut Praline Entremet.
Just Cakes Bakeshop
5-7548 120 St | 604-503-5577
103 – 17767 64 Ave | 604-575-0264
Despite the name of the shop, we assure you that they have so much more than cakes, though the cakes are next-level delicious. Visit either location and try their cupcakes with mile-high frosting, the best chocolate chip cookies, so many macarons and cake … in a jar. These brilliant bakers have taken everything you love about cake (and pie) and put it in a jar. And it’s amazing! Flavours change daily so you’ll just have to keep visiting to try them all.
Must try: Cardamom Dream Mousse Jar, Hot chocolate cupcakes, Carrot Cake Cream Puff
Sweet Revenge Bakery & Cafe
6-19567 64 Ave | 604-533-1296
Start your day with a sweet treat and a coffee at Sweet Revenge Bakery & Cafe. We recommend making that sweet treat one of their amazing doughnuts, but if croissants, scones, banana bread or cheesecake is more your style, well, more power to you! These new kids on the block are serving up a mouth-watering selection of baked treats, awesome coffee and house-made gelato and we are big fans. Vegan and gluten-free delights are also available.
Must Try: Ube (purple yam) glazed doughnut with brownie & sprinkles, the cheesecake (all of them), vegan croissants.
Sweet Avenue Bakery
135-17455 56 Ave | 778-991-4836
Delicate and sweet, macarons are a classic French dessert and the perfect mid-day snack, and Sweet Avenue Bakery has all the macaron flavours you could possibly imagine. And that’s not all you’ll find in this charming Cloverdale bakery. Cookies, cookie sandwiches, cupcakes, cinnamon buns, butter horns and gorgeous cakes are available daily, and if you’re looking for something special they are happy to chat.
Must try: Butter Horn (glazed AND frosted), macarons, toffee chocolate chip cookie sandwich with salted caramel filling.
Happy Cakes Cupcakes
18640 Fraser Hwy | 604-574-8988
Happy Cakes Cupcakes is a cupcake lover’s dream. Baker-owner Rachel makes classic vanilla or chocolate (or red velvet) cakes served in whole-cupcake or mini-cupcake form, stuffed with homemade fillings and topped with silky buttercream. We recommend getting there early as many popular flavours sell out long before closing. And if it’s a special occasion cake you’re after they’ve got you covered. Choose from one of their signature cakes, or place an order for a custom creation.
Must try: BC Becky (Vanilla Confetti cake stuffed with triple berry compote filling), Red Velvet.
Lyra Lou Cakes
102-14370 64 Ave | 604-503-5534
Lyra Lou Cakes is a Filipino-inspired bakeshop that is serving up a unique selection of desserts that blend traditional Filipino flavours with modern baking techniques. This cute shop is decorated in pastel hues and boasts display cases filled with colourful pastries and cakes. Whether it’s cupcakes, cookies, macarons or more traditional Filipino treats, there is something for everyone.
Must try: Turon Puffs (try the banana & yema, a custard-like filling), Calamansi (type of citrus fruit) cupcake, Ube Flan
New Amsterdam Bakery
12892 96 Ave | 604-584-2911
This modest bakery, located in an unassuming strip mall, has been serving up nostalgia-filled baked goods to Surrey’s residents for over 25 years. Choose from familiar classics like jelly doughnuts, bars, cookies and pastries like their famous hand-rolled cream horns and creamy vanilla slices.
Must try: Cream Horn, Bavarian Creme Doughnut
Syrian Gourmet Bakery
106-14727 108 Ave | 604-375-3966
Baklava: perhaps the perfect combination of pastry, nuts, and honey. And where better to find them than at Syrian Gourmet? The sweet cabinet here is a thing of beauty, with a dozen or more Syrian delights on the menu. Try one of everything if you’re curious–otherwise, you can’t go wrong with the baklava.
Must try: Baklava, Awameh (puffy pastry bubble balls)
