I was in between appointments over the weekend so I ventured into Ladner's small shopping vista for a quick grab. This location just opened this year, and is looking to put it's name into the area's little town characteristics.
My gf was with me so we purchased a few items, her spinach and feta croissant, and chocolate croissant and a tomato and cheese twist. They had a special giving away a free cinnamon bun for all purchases over $10. The croissants dwarfed the humungous twist, which I expected to be measley in size; it was the size of a large marble rye! Nice crusty exterior with tones familiar to the pizza pretzel. The croissants were flaky and moist while the gratuitous bun was good in it's own right. All our items would have really benefited from a little trip through the toaster oven, which would be a delightful bonus if they offered a warm up option.
Typical friendly service from the staff with smiles all around. Don't be afraid to ask for suggestions, they're usually good with picks.
Like many food businesses these days, prices have come up, but seeing as they are a big name in town, they'll draw a good crowd. Good, but there's not much to choose from to begin with.
