Five Stars for Zoe’s Bakery Where Artistry Meets Ethics in an Arena of Deliciousness in Magical Ucluelet

I may have asked the impossible of pastry chef owner, Zoe Jordan, & her team at Zoe’s Bakery & Cafe in magical Ucluelet, located on Canada’s West Coast, but she delivered, overdelivered, in fact, with a custom cake best described as sublime.
Her creation gave extra life to my vision which I verbally sketched to her over the phone from my home in Vancouver & she delivered a sumptuous cake to my family’s home in Ukee, as locals know this wonderful surfing & food Mecca as.
It was coming on Valentine’s Day & Family Day long-weekend & I wanted something special to recognize my wonderful family.
The creation was certainly special, both delicious & aesthetically pleasing, with my son & his family proclaiming it - the best, beautiful, amazing & very delicious.
My granddaughter, T, gave me further tasting notes.
After remarking that it was very delicious, she added she so liked the caramel middle & the buttercream filling which was very soft & fluffy.
I had asked Zoe to make a cake based on a chocolate cake I had made for my son’s first birthday which was double-layered with a dulche de leche filling & covering of the cake, which I repeated many times during his childhood after its successful first run.
From the wonderful discussion we had on the phone, I knew that my vision was in good hands.
I had requested this time the cake be made in four layers, ascending & narrowing upward, denoting the four members in my son’s wonderful family with this chocolate tower symbolizing their love, unity & commitment.
I also asked that each layer have the name initial from my son’s at the bottom, through my daughter-in-law’s, granddaughter’s & grandson’s, & this she did wonderfully with white chocolate name initials set against the dark chocolate.
It was heavenly.
It was memorable.
It looked just as T had described it - “very delicious”.
Thank you Zoe & team.
Everyone should have a custom cake from Zoe’s Bakery on their bucket list.
It is definitely five ⭐️
Zoe’s Bakery is also known & loved for the savory food it makes - from sandwiches, through soups & much else, with vegan options available.
And it looks out over beautiful Ukee Inner Harbor.
Food is made fresh daily &
where possible, ingredients sourced locally as well as organic.
Zoe eschews food wastage, donating food not sold on the day to the local food bank.
It discusses its ethics & lists its suppliers & partners on its website.
It is open daily from 8am to 4pm.
Always worth a visit.
