Gorgeous bakery and cafe!

So many wonderful options to choose from sweet and savoury! Lots of gluten free options as well. I got a spinach roll, frittata and a blueberry lemon donut 🍩

All of them were great! The frittata was the best, filled with potatoes, tofu and a cute tomato on top. They heated it up too 🔥 The spinach roll was good too it had like a tofu ricotta as well. The donut was very lemony 🍋 and didn’t disappoint.

I also got what they call an espresso macchiato. Not the best espresso I’ve had but it was alright, probs would get a cappuccino next time.

Lots of seating and large tables. Wifi if you want to chill there.

Great place to visit in Calgary!

Beste vegane Bäckerei

Für veganen Genuss ist dies ein Traumort. Wir waren während unseres Urlaubs mehrfach dort und haben viel Verschiedenes probiert. Ausnahmslos alles können wir empfehlen. Vegan und lecker zu backen geht eben doch. Hier findet man den Beweis dafür. Ich liebe diesen Ort. Noch dazu gibt es sehr leckeren Kaffee und wunderbaren Tee. Die Einrichtung ist für kanadische Verhältnisse auch sehr schön in weiß gehalten. Wenn es doch nur mehr solcher wunderbarer Orte geben würde. Leider wohnen wir in Deutschland, so dass ich vermutlich nie wieder von dort etwas vernaschen kann. Sehr sehr schade. Weiter so, wie bisher, liebes, verehrtes CanelaTeam.

Pros: Riesige Auswahl, Einrichtung

Best bakery

I come here every time I’m in the city, even if it’s a big detour. My favourite place for sure!! Try the bbq chicken flatbread.

Tanta scelta!

Buona selezione di prodotti da forno sia dolci che salati, locale molto carino e personale gentile.
Meraviglioso trovare dolci della tradizione nordamericana in versione vegan, sia i cinnamon rolls che i donuts sono squisiti!

Try the cupcakes!

We ordered an assorted box of cupcakes, a spinach ricotta roll and a sausage roll. Taste was 10/10 for everything - but ESPECIALLY the cupcakes. Omg! They were probably the most moist and soft cupcakes I’ve ever had.

We took our stuff to go since we had a tight schedule, but there’s plenty of room to eat in and the decor is lovely. They also gave us the option of heating our rolls up which was nice. Highly recommend!

My go-to spot almost every weekend

One of the best fully vegan cafes I’ve ever been to. They also offer gluten free options which my celiac friend has been able to eat. They always have new flavours so there’s something new each time I go.

Pros: Gluten free options , Breakfast and lunch sandwiches available , Everything is delicious

The Best Cinnamon Rolls

I've loved everything I've tried from this little bakery. I really recommend the chai cinnamon roll, pizza bun, and the spinach ricotta roll (my non-vegan husband's favourite!). They also source their ingredients from other local vendors and offer new items seasonally. Their prices are really reasonable as well! My only con is that the allergens are not listed on their website for online ordering. They do use various nuts in some of their products, so make sure you ask in store if you do have allergies!

Pros: Friendly staff, Great value, Local

Incredible Buns!

I was given a box of Canela cinnamon buns, a mix of peach- and pecan-topped varieties. These were hands-down the best vegan cinnamon buns I've had! No hard bits, just the right amount of toppings, and sweet without being sickly. I can't comment on anything else, as I haven't actually set foot in the bakery.

Terrific all vegan bake house with coffee

A lovely all vegan bake house with chocolate croissants, almond croissants, pretzel buns, pizza buns, fruit and savoury turn over pastries, sweet loafs, cinnamon buns, cookies and more. Great espresso based drinks with options of almond, oat or soy milk. Lovely kind staff. There is no indoor seating but there are a couple of chairs on the porch.

Don't go out of your way

They had a very limited pastry options and the vegan cinnamon roll was a major disappointment. It was dried out, cold, and not much icing.
