What’s New in Yaletown
What’s New in Yaletown You Ask?
Despite the whispers of “Gastown is the new Yaletown”, it’s interesting to see how much has been happening in Yaletown in the past few months. Small Victory, a boutique breakfast and lunch spot serving simple delights such as Scones & Clotted Cream or Cookies and Milk, is now a go-to destination and offers a slick stylish decor. Located on Homer Street near Moule.
Another new bakery is Sweet Bake Shop, a new store that started as a home-based business in 2010 and now features wedding cakes, cupcakes and cookies. And even Cafe Medina is getting in on the action, moving from Crosstown into the edges of Yaletown. Another bar that has been making a big name for itself is the Opus Bar…serving coffees and baked goods by day, but sinfully tasty cocktails at night, this is definitely the place to be!
