An European bakery with exquisite cakes finally opens in Burnaby . Manzano serves many different kind of fresh mouth-watering cakes and many different flavoured oven fresh bread.
Manzano is a great little bake shop for picking up little treats during your shopping excursion at Metrotown. Whether you're stopping in for a grab and go or a sit-down bun and coffee, it's perfect.
They have a huge variety of different baked goods. Their chocolate chunk cookie is sinfully delicious. The apple cinnamon bun with coffee is an excellent combination. The olive bread is a little on the hard side and could use more olives, but still tasty.
I recently bought a 6" chocolate cheesecake which did not look like your average chocolate cheesecake - light cream topping with sliced almond sides. The combination of almonds and chocolate cheesecake filling was wonderful. Very well priced at under $17.
I also got a challah loaf to make some french toast - it was the best french toast ever.
Sometimes I pick up a sandwich at this little bakery in Metrotown Mall. It is located right under the food court on the lower level. The sandwiches are to die for. Super yummy and fresh with great flavours. You can get turkey, roast beef, ham, tuna, veggie and specialties such as roasted salmon, roasted lamb made with their freshly baked bread. Delicious!
Everytime I go to the mall, I always make a bee line to Manzano. I like buying fresh bread and a cookie or a lemon square to nosh on. A few things I tried their sandwiches. It was fresh, good and filling. This little cafe/bakery is always busy. It would be nice if there was more seating. Prices are high but you get what you pay for. Can't complain.
