We stopped here after a tour of nearby UBC. We ate a late brunch of spinach and goat cheese quiche, vegan samosas and lemon loaf. The quiche in particular was outstanding. There are a ton of lunch options - including panini, pizza and mac n cheese. In addition to some lovely fresh pastries, including eclairs, tiramisu and layer cake, they have a huge range of packaged cookies. You can also find some grocery staples like cereal and flour for sale as well. Friendly, knowledgeable staff.
For the last 14 years, Panne Rizo Bakery & Café has specialized in home-style gluten-free baking. Some of their top selling products—all of which are made using free-range eggs, non-hydrogenated oils and are free of preservatives—include maple pumpkin muffins, coconut cherry dream bars, and blueberry lemon poppy seed muffins.
Pizza suffered a bit from reheating and the cheese was a little too processed and sweet for my taste (just barely but still more than this sharp cheddar and mozz fan likes). Everything is GF. A few cookies are lighter than I like (lots of starches probably) but good flavors and other items look fine. The chocolate utopia with a hint of rum was good.
Breakfast Crepe with eggs and bacon was very good. A friend had the Turkey Crepe which was excellent. They have breads and muffins as well as pizzas and soups for lunch. And they make countless kinds of cookies, for which they're well known. A dedicated GF facility.
