Kanadell Japanese Bakery is opening a storefront in Vancouver

Nov 6 2020, 8:33 pm

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, when one door closes, another one opens. Kanadell Japanese Bakery is officially taking over the former space of veggie cafe The Workshop in East Vancouver.

Located at 3596 E Hastings Street, Kanadell’s owner, Keiko Nakanishi, confirmed to Dished that the plan is to open the first-ever brick and mortar bakery this winter.

Over the past three years, Kanadell has become known for serving up delightful treats at pop-ups and farmers’ markets around Vancouver.

The concept offers goodies such as katsu sandwiches, Japanese egg sandwiches, and curry rice plates too.

Nakanishi said that in addition to those heartier eats, folks can expect Kanadell’s signature array of loaves, adorable animal bread, melon pans, mochi cakes, fruit roll cakes, hojicha creamy puddings, Japanese chiffon cakes, and souffle cheesecakes to name a few.

For beverages, Kanadell will serve specialty lattes, teas, and coffees.
